Which tests to use to assess the health of your soil?

Category: News
6 January 2016

As part of the GREATSoils project we have produced Which tests to use to assess the health of your soil? - an informative overview of the various tools and methods currently available.

GREATSoils -Growing Resilient Efficient And Thriving Soils is a three-year AHDB Horticulture funded project, led by the Soil Association. The project aims to evaluate and improve growers' soil assessment methods in order to optimise and maintain soil fertility and organic matter levels, benefitting yields and reducing costs.
