Healthy Soils

    Land is the greatest asset for farmers, and it is founded on healthy soil.

    Degraded soil affects nearly one third of the Earth's land area, impacted in part by poor management practices, population pressures on the land and use of expensive chemical fertilisers and labour-intensive organic nutrients. This results in enormous costs environmentally, and economically to the farmers.

    Measuring Progress

    Our goal is to protect and restore degraded soil. Our primary efforts are focused on supporting and educating smallholder farmers in better land management and farming practices. Over the year our business has delivered education and training to 268,000 farmers on best soil practices.
