2010 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary areas of investigation include Soil water, Soil organic matter, Soil science, Organic matter and Soil carbon. His No-till farming study, which is part of a larger body of work in Soil water, is frequently linked to Silt, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Agronomy, Soil test, Soil structure, Mineralogy and Environmental chemistry, which intersect with Soil organic matter.
His work is dedicated to discovering how Soil science, Clay minerals are connected with Spatial ecology and other disciplines. His study in Organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil biodiversity, Decomposition, Field capacity and Animal science. His Soil carbon course of study focuses on Soil horizon and Oxisol.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Soil water, Soil organic matter, Soil carbon and Organic matter. Johan Six has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Soil structure and No-till farming, Soil fertility. While the research belongs to areas of Soil water, he spends his time largely on the problem of Environmental chemistry, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Denitrification.
His research in Soil organic matter intersects with topics in Soil biology, Fractionation, Ecosystem, Soil management and Animal science. Johan Six combines subjects such as Total organic carbon, Soil biodiversity, Carbon sequestration, Hydrology and Saturation with his study of Soil carbon. His Tillage research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cover crop, Irrigation and Greenhouse gas.
Johan Six spends much of his time researching Agronomy, Soil water, Soil carbon, Environmental chemistry and Agroforestry. In his work, Soil retrogression and degradation and Crop is strongly intertwined with Soil fertility, which is a subfield of Agronomy. Soil water is a subfield of Soil science that Johan Six tackles.
Within one scientific family, Johan Six focuses on topics pertaining to Organic matter under Soil carbon, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Soil organic matter. His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cropping, Agriculture, Sustainable agriculture and Production. His work carried out in the field of Tillage brings together such families of science as Cover crop, Crop rotation and Organic farming.
Johan Six mainly investigates Agronomy, Soil carbon, Soil water, Environmental chemistry and Agroforestry. The concepts of his Agronomy study are interwoven with issues in Phosphorus and Soil fertility. His Soil carbon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon sequestration, Nutrient, Biogeochemistry and Soil structure.
Johan Six interconnects Soil organic matter and Total organic carbon in the investigation of issues within Carbon sequestration. His study looks at the relationship between Soil organic matter and fields such as Topsoil, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Johan Six integrates many fields in his works, including Soil water and Silt.
