Researchers who are part of the VIC DPI Vegetable Soil Health Team have found that by measuring biological, physical and chemical properties in soil they are able to identify which of the methods used in their trials have resulted in improved soil quality, whilst providing good yields and maximum profit. This 4-page fact sheet summarises the key aspects and findings of project VG07008 under the following headings: Measuring & Monitoring Soil Health, Economic Benefits of Soil Health, Effect of Soil Carbon on Disease, ‘C-Calc’ (a computer-based tool to assist cacluation of organic matter added to soil), and Soil Health Management Guide (a series of steps to start improving soil health).
