Northern Rivers Soil Health Card


A soil management tool developed by farmers for farmers. This soil health card was developed as part of the Good Soil Project and the Good Worm Project, initiatives of Tuckombil Landcare Inc. in partnership with NSW DPI (then NSW Agriculture) and the Natural Heritage Trust.

The soil health card lists 10 straightforward visual soil tests that require simple equipment and can be carried out by one person in the field. It provides space for you to rate your own soils after carrying out the tests.

By testing regularly and keeping the cards, you can build up a record of your soil health, and understand the effect of management practices on soil health.
