A guide to measuring the biological quality of soils fot the seed potato sector 

To diagnose the biological state of a soil, indicators are used to show the abundance, diversity and activity of organisms. A good indicator must be relevant to the functions being studied, adapted to the ecosystems being studied (e.g. agricultural environments), capable of discriminating between different soils, and compatible with the technical and financial constrainst of the observers.

This guide presents 10 simple and inexpensive methods for estimating the abundance, diversity and activity of soils organisms.
