Soil Scicence


Our research is focused on understanding the characteristics and genesis of various soils, including “Andisol,” which is widely distributed in the Tohoku region, to maintain and improve safe food production, to preserve the agricultural environment, and to mitigate climate change.

Based on research on soil-plant interactions, we are investigating the dynamics of essential elements such as sulfur, manganese, silicate, phosphorus, and nitrogen in agricultural ecosystems, and the risk reduction of toxic elements such as cadmium and arsenic. We also focus on the biological communities and their relationships with soil fertility since soils are living!
