Sustainable Soil

Duration: 5 hours

Whilst the actual definition of sustainable farming varies somewhat, conservation and rejuvenation of agricultural soils are essential elements of any sustainable agricultural system. Healthy soil is crucial to root development and general health. To achieve this, we must care for our soil, adding nutrients and increasing organic matter in a sustainable way. With this course you will learn about growing media, major types of soil problems, soil sodicity, salinity, erosion, cultivation techniques, plant nutrition, earthworms, nitrogen fixing, composting and more.
