FARMACY Healthy Soils - Page 4



Reports and Action Plans
The output from our Healthy Soils service is delivered in a bespoke report which
detail the soil audit findings. The experience of the agronomist with the historical
farm knowledge of the client are used together to define key action plans to
remedy any issues which are identified (see example report elements below).
A critical part of the action plan is to modify farm practices which will allow soil
organic matter to build, fauna and flora to flourish (especially earthworms) and
increase the moisture holding capacity of the soil.
