Short summary
Current soil C models do not adequately describe the quality of the amendments added to fields. In this study, we propose a modification of the soil C model "RothC" that was found to be effective in simulating the response of laboratory-incubated soils treated with contrasting amendments. We think that these findings could help to develop better soil C models and improve predictions of the effects of different amendments on soil organic matter dynamics on agricultural and managed land.
