For whatever location it is used, SQAPP (the soil quality app) calculates a score that indicates the potential for improving soil quality and identifies the most urgent local soil threats. SQAPP then draws on a world-wide database to make recommendations for agricultural management practices that have been used to improve soil quality in similar situations. The 89 practices included in the database are classified broadly into the following types management
- carbon and nutrient
Over 390 examples of the use of these practices is provided. Most of the practices and examples are drawn from the »WOCAT Global Database on Sustainable Land Management. However sometimes the practices may be reported in research papers and occasionally are related to a commercial product (in which case it should be understood that this does not imply any endorsement of the product by iSQAPER).
