DG: Soil Testing

Conduct soil testing and mapping to provide better knowledge regarding selection of appropriate crops and improved fertiliser application.

Why it is Important?

Basing fertiliser application on the results of soil tests can result in more targeted fertiliser application, reducing costs and potential runoff of excess fertiliser. Selecting crops suited to various soil types can improve farm diversity and business management.

Examples of Local Action

  • Support landholders to conduct soil testing on farms and use the results for improved fertiliser application.
