Abaco Digital Soil Health
Sustainable, profitable and productive farming

We support farmers and supply chains in measuring and improving soil health.
he target matches the government’s ambition:
“by 2030, all England’s soils will be managed sustainably and degradation threats tackled successfully”.

A joint project

The joint project of ABACO Group and the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) – a plant and crop science research organisation based in Cambridge – dedicated to digitising soil health systems and aimed at the UK retail sector.
Building on existing knowledge and paper-based solutions, the Digital Soil Health has been developed to an agreed industry standard, with a diversity of end-users. 

Monitoring soil health
thanks to a digital score

Abaco Digital Soil Health establishes a common baseline to measure and interpret Soil Health for each individual field or soil zone. 
This allows farmers to develop site-specific management plans to achieve healthier soil and support profitable and sustainable farming systems.

The Digitally enabled decision-making framework supports the development of Healthier Soil by:
  • Removing constraints to achieve yield potential
  • Improving targeted, efficient nutrient use
  • Increasing yield resilience
  • Reducing need for purchased fertiliser
  • Increasing carbon capture and sequestration
  • Improving water quality
  • Providing better support for biodiversity
Abaco Digital Soil Health will now be trialled by
