Healthy soils are essential for resilient crop production and supporting our ecosystem. They positively contribute to soil water retention, support a diversity of organisms vital to decomposition and nutrient cycling, provide crops with essential nutrients and can maintain carbon stores, contributing to global climate change mitigation. Simply put, there is no way for us to meet the growing demands for food, feed, fiber, and fuel if we do not maintain soil health.

The Organic Centre conducted a research study in December 2019, about the health of soil in organic systems. Click here for a detailed summary of the findings and accessible information about rejuvenating and maintaining soil health in organic farming practices.
