During the week of June 14, 2021, the scientific team from Abdelmalek El Saadi University in Tetouan, represented by Ali Yahya and the Master student Abdel Aziz el Mahmoudi, carried out a field visit to the olive farms selected in the province of Ouazzane.
This field visit was for two main objectives. Sampling soil in order to do the analysis ( Physico-chemical indicators, soil functional assessment, and microbial community, etc…). And also to do the biovolume measurement in order to know the amount of CO2 that is transformed from the atmosphere to Organic Carbon within the permanent and stable tree structures.
The works were carried out in two plots in the province of Ouazzane, the plot “Selam Azzuz” which is located in Assjen, and the plot “Alhuda” which is located in the village of Harrara near the town of Ouazzane.
Pending, the same working methodology will be applied to all STS and non-STS farms in North and South Morocco in the coming days in order to carry out soil analysis for all farms.
