Online resource guides growers to good soils

Vegetable growers in Australia can now access a comprehensive online resource to improve all aspects of soil health on-farm and increase the efficiency and profitability of their businesses. 

The Good Soil Guide is a free online encyclopaedia specifically designed for growers and industry to use in the field. The resource was developed in the United Kingdom as a collaboration between Yorkshire Water, Yorkshire supply chain consultancy Future Food Solutions and soil scientist Neil Fuller. 

The guide includes information, data and advice on how to improve soil health, increase soil organic matter, diagnose and treat problems with soil and crops, and help farmers to reduce carbon emissions. Additional knowledge can also be added to the ‘live guide’ from growers and industry professionals around the world. 

Growers can access the Good Soil Guide at www.soilguide.co.uk and create a free account.
