   Another new fiscal year has started. I have been a bit busy and it has been more than a month from the last update. My team has not been changed and this year, we aim to do more and more field works. Our limitation is manpower (we only have 7 people in total) but I guess we do our best for farmers. Snow has melt and I see my students have already started some preliminary experiments. 
   Chamber measurements of the gas emitted from soils are often used to measure greenhouse gas emissions but I also want to link the gas emissions to organic matter decomposition and microbial activities. It is a hand-made chamber but it works well, according to our preliminary data.
