Garden Organic, the UK’s leading organic growing charity, commented on the findings of a report which was published by the Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE). It highlighted the threats posed to the health of the soil in the UK, Fresh Plaza reports. The RASE report concluded that a fundamental lack of investment for research into sustainable agricultural techniques was a real danger to the future of our soil and our food production systems.
Myles Bremner, Chief Executive of Garden Organic, remarked that Garden Organic had been researching and promoting organic growing methods for over 50 years and that Garden Organic agreed with the findings. Organic methods in both agricultural and domestic settings should be applied to nourish and protect soil health and further research into these techniques had to be invested. He continued that greater recognition of the role that organic agriculture played in protecting the soil was also needed in order to reverse damage and to prevent further degradation. Garden Organic hoped that the release of this report would ensure further investment into UK soil research, including organic practices.
