A booklet helping farmers recognise and rectify a number of soil-related issues, such as compaction, erosion and surface capping, has been jointly produced by SAC, SEERAD and a number of other industry bodies.

The Farm Soils Plan is divided into six sections covering topics such as basic soil information, erosion, nutrient applications and cross-compliance, says SAC’s Rebecca Audsley.

It is available free from SEERAD, SAC and FWAG offices.
