Why we need healthy soils - webinar

Teagasc researchers on this webinar gave an insight into their research, the health of Irish soils and what we need to do to make them healthier.

The second webinar in a series of Teagasc Research Insights Webinars focusing on soils was entitled 'Why we need healthy soils?'. Teagasc researchers Fiona Brennan, Karen Daly and Owen Fenton joined Karl Richards, Head of Environment, Soils & Land Use to discuss soil health.

The video below introduces the concept of soil quality and its importance not only for its productive capacity but also for the provision of critical ecosystem services. It provides a snap shot of the three soil quality research areas presently conducted within the Teagasc CELUP programme (i.e. biological, chemical and physical quality).
