It also tests and develops new tools for soil health analysis and planning soil health management. The project aims to improve farmers’ soil management skills and know-how on profitable and resource-efficient farming.
28 different educational events (seminars, workshops, field days and study groups) with 810 participants.
Information about soil health management was widely disseminated especially via 23 articles in professional magazines and educational and other events.
Participants made many improvements to soil health management at a farm level.
