Cropping systems and soil health in SA

This project involves identifying field test sites to determine their soil health status through an assessment of selected biological, chemical and physical soil health indicators, to establish initial baseline values. Specific cropping systems / soil management systems will be implemented and the soil health indicators monitored over time to determine the impact of each intervention on the soil health status. Finally, a conceptual soil health model will be developed for the selected cropping systems relevant to small medium and large farming systems.
