Technical University of Madrid

Technical University of Madrid / Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain, UPM has developed different research programs related to the development of sustainable management practices for agriculture. Primary areas of experience include carbon and nitrogen dynamics in agroecosystems, nitrogen loss in the form of NO3- leaching and emissions of N2O, NOx and NH3, greenhouse gas exchanges (CO2, CH4 and N2O) and carbon sequestration in agroecosystems, soil resource sustainability as influenced by land management (e.g. conservation agriculture practices). UPM research will bring to ‘Towards INMS’ valuable technical experience base on its expertise areas and results from ongoing field experiments.
