Summary

A soil quality test is available on http://www.agronet.fi/peltomaan_laatutesti to evaluate the quality
of Finnish agricultural soils. The test examines chemical, physical and biological properties of soils,
and thus, gives a comprehensive picture of soil quality. Soil quality means the capability of the soil to
maintain its versatile processes, and produce good yields and wholesome food with minimum harm
to the environment.
