Soil compaction is detrimental to soil health as the air spaces that facilitate the movement of water, gases and plant roots are compressed.
A serious issue in some parts of Queensland, soil acidification occurs when the soil pH decreases over time.
Soil fertility declines when the quantities of nutrients removed from the soil in harvested products exceed the quantities of nutrients being applied.
Soils can generate and store greenhouse gases, depending on how they are managed.
