The results of the Call for Small Research Projects on soil salinity (FAO / Eurasian Soil Partnership) 2016 have been published

In May 2016 a call was opened by FAO in collaboration with the Eurasian Soil Partnership for Small Research Projects dealing with soil salinity. Fourteen project proposals were submitted to the evaluation committee. After a peer-review process five projects fitting to the scope of the call and having the highest scientific quality were selected. We congratulate the winners.
