Soil Doctor

Get an expert analysis from the Regenerative Agriculture soil scientists of a soil sample from your farm (arable or grassland) at the Innovation Zone. Farmers are welcome to bring a piece of soil about the size of a medium-sized coffee cup, dug as a block from 0-10 cm deep (or deeper if you think you may have compaction). This is a great opportunity to learn how to look for good soil markers and discuss soil health on your farm.

Please drop off your soil samples with a label noting how the land has been managed, in a plastic bag or container to Holly Jones, Farmer Scientist Network Coordinator, or the team from the University of Leeds and University of Sheffield in the Innovation Zone (Map Grid Ref: E7) and book a time slot on the day to discuss. Or contact hollyj@yas.co.uk if you want to drop off in advance of the show.
