Soil Health is in Decline
Monday 30th November 2020 in EIA & Soils
The UK’s arable soils have lost 80% of their original total carbon stock over the past 80 years, seriously affecting their capacity soil to retain nutrients and water, resist erosion, or support crop performance during times of stress. The implications of this loss are considerable.
Future Food Solutions has co-ordinated the creation of the Good Soil Guide https://soilguide.co.uk/ as a platform for discussion, innovation and technical support for farmers and land managers looking for the sustainable, environmentally positive management practices that can reverse decline in soil quality, regenerate soil health and restore the soil Carbon balance.
