Short summary
In a paired plot design we studied the effect on soil organic carbon stocks of the transformation of a natural forest in the Po Valley in northern Italy into a short rotation poplar plantation 37 years ago and observed a reduction by 40% or 5.7 kg m−2 over the plowing depth of 55cm. A dedicated sampling scheme and application of spatial statistics was needed to proof this change because the homogenization effect of plowing created a spatial auto-correlation.
