Soil management and soil management plans are based on analyses and an understanding of soil types - their physical structure, the operative physical and chemical processes and the biological populations present.
Soil improvement in terms of nutrient input, crop regime, tillage techniques and field drainage all influence land use, crop choice and crop yield. Soil protection and conservation are criteria typical of farm support and cross compliance schemes. Common soil management problems include erosion, compaction (from agricultural machines or from livestock) and waterlogging.
The Openfields library contains information on soil strategies and the management of soil health.
