Field Observatory and Carbon Action as part of ’Fair of the ’’4 per 1000’’ international Initiative’

We will demonstrate Field Observatory:

Background: Field Observatory illustrates the effects of carbon farming on Finnish farms and the development of an international carbon sequestration verification system. The data of the Field Observatory come from different Finnish farms that are involved in the Carbon Action research.

Further information


Clients / Target group

The Field Observatory is a living laboratory where data are visible to everyone. With the Field Observatory service, we want to present the current state of science and envision the future possibilities of carbon sequestration. Our research contributes to the utilization of soil carbon sequestration in climate goals of businesses and the public sector. In addition, The Field Observatory shows how practitioners can apply the carbon sequestration study results in practical carbon farming. The information serves and connects farmers, researchers, and all others interested in soil carbon sequestration

Established collaborations and partnerships

The Finnish Meteorological Institute, the Finnish Environment Institute SYKE, Häme University of Applied Sciences HAMK, and the Baltic Sea Action Group BSAG are developing the Field Observatory. The Strategic Research Council, Business Finland, the Academy of Finland's Flagship Program, and the Ministry of Education and Culture fund the work. The Field Observatory service is part of the Carbon Action Platform to improve agriculture’s climate, waters, and biodiversity impacts.

Desired collaborations and partnerships

We are hoping to collaborate with similar living laboratories

  1. Hi Laura, i just saw, that you already put in all the information! Perfect! Sounds very intressting!

    1. Thank you. Will the 'topic' be updated also to the map and to page were all the Stands are presented? That would be great. Only 'Field Observatory' does not say much, for that reason the longer title is better. The time: The other stands do not have times selected yet. So if we start and choose from the 4th of May already?

      1. Hi Laura Höijer , yes, now it should be displayed at the map and at the overview page as well. You can also decide on later/other timeslots at a later time.

        One question: While registering you put in 3 other teammembers. If you could send  their email adresses, we can also send them their usernames for the platform.

        Best wishes



    Thank you! And we will think about other timeslots also. Is 60 minutes good time? 



  3. Thank you Laura! Yes, we think 60minutes is good time!

    Hi all, 

    We just wanted to make you aware of our activities at the stand 114 (Stand 114). We are presenting today our mobile VR app LIFE AMDRYC4. It is available for IOS and ANDROID ( or and you can also play through the web application at our official site ( The application is available in 5 languages (Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French and English) and allows you to simulate the effects of agricultural practices on the soil productivity, and CO2 emissions. We would love to have your feedback on this and we are happy to answer any question you may have about the LIFE AMDRYC4 project.

    Maria Jose Martinez (Research Coordinator), Carmen Perez Sirvent (Research Coordinator), Manuel Hernandez Perez (VideoGame Designer and Project Manager). 

  5. Thank you for sharing with everyone the work you are doing with carbon farming in Finland. I would like to invite you to visit our Stand 19 - Agripower Australia, to learn about the benefits that silicon fertiliser has for conservation agriculture, soil and plant health, and carbon sequestration. Please leave a message for us if you would like to meet and talk more!
