Improving Soil Health is the theme of the latest BASIS online classroom.

Teresa Meadows

Designed to help farmers and agronomists enhance soil health through informed decision-making and practical application it allows participants to complete short individual topic areas or opt for a bundled approach.

The curriculum is meticulously curated, catering to a diverse audience and enabling participants to gain insights into managing soil health effectively. The courses focus on key aspects, including soil structure, organic matter, biology, and the creation of strategic soil management plans.

“The autumn is a good time to be out assessing soils on your own farm or your clients, when soils are moist and ahead of cultivations to check for structure and soil biology,” says Teresa Meadows, Head of Environment at BASIS. “These courses provide the background to soil structure, biology and soil organic matter, what to look for, how to carry out any assessments, plus practical guides to download and complete and the management practices that can be done, depending on what you find and the areas that you would like to improve.”

“The courses also align closely with the new actions for soils under the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) in England with the ‘Creating a Soil Management Plan’ course, providing all the technical details and template to deliver this action for your business or for your clients, which will be invaluable for advisers”.
