Soil Quality and Health in Pasture Systems

‘Soil quality and health in pasture systems’ was a two year project funded by the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. In this project, Holbrook Landcare Network developed benchmark and extension information on quality and health for our local soils. The aim was to increase the knowledge of managers of permanent pastures and achieve better outcomes for groundcover, soil health and productivity. Soil sampling of local pasture paddocks in the Spring of 2021 and analysis of our soils database created a soil health snapshot for our different farming systems, soil types and rainfall zones.
