Many farmers are adjusting their Rotations, Cultivations & Fertilising practices. This includes many combinations of Cover Crops, more Animal manures, less Pesticides, moving less Soil with less Horsepower to improve their soils' resilience. This has added benefit of allowing the plant roots to do a better job in seeking out nutrients that the plant requires & improving Organic Matter levels. Every farm is different.
This requires a long term plan, which needs measuring to properly monitor & establish progress.
For greatest accuracy Soil Fertility & Organic matter needs Laboratory Testing - But at a Cost.
A.S. have a package of Field Test Equipment which enables farmers to gain ownership over the condition of their Soils, by doing much of the monitoring themselves.
Brand New to UK Farmers are SOLVITA Field Test Kits (USA) to measure Soil Health, also Manure & Compost levels. We especially believe ‘Soil Health’ testing by measuring CO2 respiration of the Microbes in the Soil (breaking down the Soil Organic Matter) will help most UK farmers achieve their objective.
We believe the best timing for CO2 Respiration testing will be between Harvest and Soil disturbance planting the next crop!
