The importance of soil health

Soil health

Healthy soil is important for all of us. If our soils are healthy, crops grow well and we have few problems with plant diseases. A healthy soil has a crumbly structure, good drainage and retains sufficient moisture. By working on soil health, compaction, flooding, drought, erosion and problems with crop growth are prevented. A healthy soil is also a habitat for soil life, thus contributing to biodiversity.

About soil health 

The quality of our soils is determined by physical, chemical and biological factors. Texture, structure, bearing capacity and the water content together determine the physical soil quality. Chemical aspects such as the nutrients present, the pH and the salt content also play a role. Soil biology is often overlooked, but it is a very important component. All kinds of organisms live in the soil, such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, mites, springtails and worms. A healthy soil life ensures that soil processes run optimally. It ensures an airy soil structure, good water regulation, nutrient cycling and plant resistance. A healthy soil produces healthy crops and is the basis for sustainable entrepreneurship.
