Abstract

The current interest in soil health is largely due to increased awareness of the importance of soil biology. While there are a variety of biological soil health indices, there is currently no consensus among scientists. The current soil health tests are relatively expensive and show inconsistent results amongst management practices. Further research into calibrating and validating all soil health indicators is needed, especially for biological indicators.
