BBC Farming Today this week focused last week on arguably our most precious resource: soil. Soil isn’t a single substance but a vastly complex combination of organisms which all need to be cared for properly. If a soil is too wet, too dry or too compact it will not function as well as it might in order to produce food. Growers and farmer still need to be educated more about the complexities of soil if yields are to be maximised in the future. I highly recommend you listen to this programme.
