    Why is soil and water research important?

    Soil is the foundation of civilisation: we build our homes on it, and we get virtually all our food from it either directly or indirectly. Along with water, these are vital components of all life. Our research group aims to further our understanding of soil and water relationships, our impact on these, and how they can be managed in a sustainable manner.
