Abstract

Organic carbon, Corg, (Soil Organic Matter = Humus = Corg x 1.72) is the prerequisite for soil formation and for maintaining its fertility. All considerations on humus require a differentiation into at least 2 fractions. Humus has always been divided into the fraction’s permanent humus (also inert in the sense of not participating in the mineralization processes) and nutrient humus. The results of an evaluation of 79 long-term field experiments worldwide are shown. The initiative of the French government to increase the carbon content of the world’s soils by 4 ‰ annually is completely unrealistic.
