Leaflet on nematodes as suitable indicators for soil health

The new Greenresilient leaflet explains why nematodes can be excellent indicators for soil health.

During the Greenresilient project, nematode communities will be characterized at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the field trials to reveal shifts in their community. These shifts will be analysed to determine whether the chosen ‘innovative’ methods tested in the project are beneficial for soil health, causing an increased resilience to pests and diseases and a more balanced nutrient supply, for more sustainable and high-quality crop production. This leaflet explains why nematodes can be excellent indicators for soil health.
