Soil health and resilience research
In this section
Research Aim 1 in the Soil health and resilience: Oneone ora, Tangata ora MBIE-funded programme supports a science-based approach which focuses on long term experiments and land use comparisons for measuring the soil system. A range of soil characteristics and land use sequences in a variety of soil types are being measured to understand how different soils change under land use intensification.
