Soil Management including Organic Matter
The Downs & Harbours programme offers a limited specialist 1:1 service for two medium-large fields per farm, looking at soil profile, texture and structure, nutrient and organic matter content and recommended management to improve workability and higher yields.
Other aspects may include risk assessment, e.g. flooding or run-off, and advice on formalising field mapping.
Advice given will:
help future management decisions or cropping patterns
help to identify nutrient and resource losses that can negatively affect water quality and aquatic habitats
give guidance on how to improve soils productivity and sustainability
demonstrate good practice
