Asda and LEAF have produced the Simply Sustainable Soils guide. This gives farmers advice on soil texture, structure, drainage, compaction, nutrients and biological health.
The effects of climate change including drier summers, milder winters and rising sea levels present a high risk to the stability of our soil.
How farmers manage their soil is critical to help reduce the effects of these changes, which is why they need practical and realistic ways to make their farming systems more robust. ‘˜Simply Sustainable Soils’ will help make these changes a reality, bringing about meaningful changes on the ground.
The guide is useful for anyone wanting to assess and manage their soils.
