The Soil Management in the Pacific initiative aims to improve soil management and knowledge through in the region through the following objectives.
- Identify barriers that are preventing sustainable soil management.
- Quantify nutrient cycling in island agricultural and taro production systems and undertake field trials to highlight the importance of budgeting for soil fertility management and increasing yield.
- Identify problems and subsequently improve current soil sampling, testing and interpretation protocols and develop soil type specific protocols.
Develop the Pacific Soil Portal to enable sustainable soil management in Pacific farming systems.
