Monitoring the biodiversity, humus content and soil fertility of production sites on farms from the four cultural groups “vegetables”, “fruit”, “potatoes” and “citrus fruits” is the basis for long-term improvement of soil health, not only on these pilot farms.

The individual farm soil condition analysis is used to introduce and test scientific knowledge and methods to improve soil health in farms that supply Kaufland with the relevant products. The success of the stabilization of the individual farm measures is analyzed and documented and the knowledge gained is made generally accessible.
