Summary

This tool provides an overview of measures you can take to build or maintain healthy soils and describes further how the soil food web and management practices lead to a healthy soil with a good productivity. The role of soil organic matter and humus are explained, as well as resilience against soil borne diseases.
For a rich soil biodiversity a yearly and sufficiently high input of organic matter is necessary to compensate for the yearly breakdown of soil organic matter. Important organic matter sources include crop residues, animal manure, green manure, cover crops, compost and vermicompost.
This tools and its recommendations are relevant for all farmers looking to improve their soil health and fertility.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn how to maintain and stimulate soil health.
What problem does the tool address?:Soil health is of major importance to grow high yielding crops and to harvest high quality products. Different factors promote a healthy soil which is more resilient to constraints such as pests and diseases.
What solution does the tool offer?:A resilient soil means that the soil is capable to resist or recover its healthy condition in a response to these constraints – farmers can influence soil health through their management practices.
