About the report

report cover

In Australia, vegetables are produced on a wide variety of soils, each with its own virtues and constraints. Understanding the characteristics of the soil will aid production efficiency, profitability and the sustainable use of the basic resource of farming.

Specifically for vegetable agronomists, consultants and growers, this manual takes a holistic view of soil health, considering the interaction of physical, chemical and biological soil properties. The balance and stability of these components are what make a healthy soil.
