The Fundamentals of Soils Part 4: How to Improve Soil Health

This is this final episode of four for The Tillage Edge’s special soil series and this week we return to Professor Mike McLaughlin, from the University of Adelaide, to chat about soil health and how soils can be improved.

Mike discusses how to measure soil health and how useful this measure is.  Mike points to American research by the Soil Health Institute which narrowed down the parameters to determine a healthy soil to organic carbon concentration, carbon mineralisation potential and aggregate stability.
