    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The RIVM has developed with the Wageningen University (WUR) a new technique by which the soil quality can be determined accurately, the so-called nematode DNA barcode tool. This molecular method provides faster and more detailed information about disturbances in soil quality and the possible causes. This can be done because this novel information is combined with data on the overall processes by which crops are grown. Examples are the use of pesticides and effects on the soil systems of agricultural techniques such as ploughing and fertilizing. In this way a better understanding of the influences on soil quality of agricultural practices, such as genetically modified (GM) crops, can be achieved.
