Cultivating Soil Health
This field lab is investigating reduced tillage in organic farming, with the use of black plastic for weed control, to cultivate soil health.
Ploughing is a very useful method to help prepare seedbeds and control weeds. Unfortunately it is also associated with a decline in soil health, particularly in terms of earthworm numbers. In this field lab we will be investigating the impact of reduced tillage on soil health.
