Soil Quality Project Farmer Event

Soil Quality Project Farmer Event

The Soil Quality Project is developing and piloting a web-based tool to aid decisions on soil management by benchmarking physical, chemical and biological indicators.

This event is for farmers wanting to work with the project to make make sure the tool meets local needs.

BGS is working in collaboration with Wye and Usk Foundation and Newcastle University (Project Lead) to bring you this opportunity.

The aim is to establsih a group of farmers within Herefordshire to:

  • Meet the project team and find out more about the website (this event).
  • Work with the support of the project team to collect soil samples recording field data on line and submitting samples (c. 40 in total per group) for analysis of pH, available P & K and soil organic matter in September/ October
  • Meet to benchmark the results, discuss implications for management and play with data in the web framework in late November/ December
