We need data concerning plant production and carbon dioxide emissions for the decision-making process. The soil conditions should be monitored. This can be done in several ways. One can compare good and bad field plots at the most common soil types. It is possible to find out the carbon content in soil by burning, by using penetrometer measurements which shows the soil compaction at different depths and one can monitor the soil structure by digging a whole in the soil. The amount of earthworms in the soil tells how well the soil is. Only by measuring and monitoring field soil conditions we get information needed in order to carry out improvements on soil conditions. Domestic protein plants can be used in feeding animals.
Information about general soil conditions were described at Koivikko educational farm. Soil compactions were measured at several educational farms. The content of carbon in soil was measured at Mustiala educational farm. Reed can be used as soil improvment material, more research is needed on its use. Mustiala educational farm described what kind of actions has been taken in order to lower the carbon emissions from the educational farm. Possibilities on lowering carbon emissions from green houses was described.
