Abstract

Soil health describes the functional properties of cultivated soils. It can be measured with various methods and it can also have different kinds of disorders. This report focuses on monitoring and improving soil health. The results are based on field research on 8 farms. The experimental fields were “problem soils” and their well growing control fields. The aim of the study was to identify and improve the problems found on the fields, using a process of continuous development. The report presents the changes in different fields from 2015-2017 and provides an assessment of the effectiveness of different measures to improve soil health.
