I have been very fortunate to have been assisted by PhD students Peter Bilson Obour, Loraine ten Damme and now Alvaro Calleja Huerta during the 6 years. We have done our best to keep you updated on ISTRO affairs, news regarding “our” journal – Soil and Tillage Research, personalia and on meetings and books of relevance to the ISTRO community." - more from Lars in the newsletter.
