Simply Sustainable Soils: Case studies

We have been working to provide you with practical on-farm data and guidance behind the assessment in the Simply Sustainable Soils booklet. This data has been compiled into a set of case studies to act as a reservoir of suggestions and ideas for LEAF members.

A selection of LEAF Demonstration Farms and ASDA farms were visited which included a wide range of soil, farm and enterprise types. A sample selection of case studies is available on the links below and more can be accessed through MyLEAF.
