The soil quality concept and its importance in the study of Finnish arable soils

The soil quality concept and its importance in the study of Finnish arable soils

Agricultural and Food Science in Finland 11(4): 329-342

Arable soil is a functional unit whose condition is vital to crop production, but also to ecosystems at large owing to the significant role of soil in global nutrient cycles and balances. The soil quality concept recognizes the concern for the sustainability of current arable land use practices. It integrates soil chemical, physical and biological properties, and takes account of the interaction of soil with water and air.
