Soil is one of our most valuable natural resource assets. Our soils make a significant contribution to the economic well being of NSW. In the past this contribution has come at some cost due to limited information, mismanagement and poor practice. Sustainable soil use, management and conservation are essential to achieving economic, environmental and social goals for NSW.
This Position Statement on Soils for NSW Department of Primary Industries outlines the policy context, use and management principles and objectives that enable the agency to take a lead role in soil futures for NSW.
