Scientific rationale for Soil Life Monitor
Soil life monitoring is an essential tool for assessing the health of soils and detecting any changes or disruptions that may be occurring. As an NGO, policy maker or scientist you should be interested in soil life for several reasons.
Monitoring the soil life helps you:
- To assess the health of soils and identify any problems that need to be addressed.
- To understand the role of soil (micro)organisms in ecosystems and how they are affected by land use changes or management practices.
- To evaluate the impact of different land use practices on soil health and identify sustainable management practices that promote healthy soils.
- To generate data and evidence to support advocacy efforts for soil health and sustainable land use.
- To raise awareness among policymakers, farmers, and the general public about the importance of soil health and the need for sustainable land use practices.
