PJ Phelan: Why we must focus our efforts to improve our soils

blank

Last Tuesday I attended a field meeting organized by BASE Ireland for the European Conservation Agriculture Federation (ECAF). BASE is a voluntary group of Irish farmers who test and develop methods to improve their land. BASE focuses on improving soil health by establishing crops with minimal soil disturbance (no ploughing), protecting the soil with either growing crops or crop residues, and using a combination of crop rotations and cover crops to improve soil structure.

The use of pesticides and fertilizers is kept to a minimum to allow for economically viable crops with minimal damage to soil and the environment.
