Photo Story – Collaborating with Farmers to give Soils a New Lease of Life

Ikabongo Mukumbuta’s research focuses on soil health management and ecosystem restoration. He is particularly interested in measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural soils and analyzing how climate change and on-farm practices influence these emissions.

“I chose to study soil science because it is the foundation for agricultural production,” says Ikabongo, a 2021 One Planet Laureate Candidate. “To grow crops effectively, you have to manage your soil. Food production challenges emanate from problems in the soil.”
