At present, a project for establishing agroecological farms in Cuba is being carried out, with the objective to reach a sustainable soil management and, at the same time, reduce the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases. The main task is soil characterization and inventory of its carbon reserves in 90 farms throughout the country. This work is an example of the results in La Colmena farm, a teaching-research area from the faculty of Agronomy at the University of Cienfuegos, under a subhumid tropical climate. Feozems and Fluvisols were characterized, also determining their fertility status and carbon reserves
