Resource Created By: South Coast NRM

Resource Developed in 2021

Healthy soils are essential to produce quality crops and pastures. Soil must be physically, nutritionally and biologically balanced be productive and stable. Soil structure decline, soil acidification and soil erosion are common soil health issues with the potential to severely restrict agricultural productivity on susceptible soil types, while erosion may also contribute to downstream sedimentation and turbidity within water storages.

Good soil health is about creating a robust soil that can withstand impacts, such as agriculture, without loss of fertility, structure and biological activity. (Agriculture Victoria website, 2006)
