This is soil health data collected from 24 Finnish fields between 2015-2018. The fields were chosen to represent fields with poor and good productivity on a given farm. The dataset is coded based on farm code (two letters) and field code: 0 poor field, no interventions; 1 poor field, improved soil management; K good field.

Fields were monitored for soil nutrients, soil physical quality and some biological parameters (aggregate stability, earthworms, arthropods, soil carbon dioxide burst respiration).

The overview dataset contains the parameters used for monitoring development in soil health in the fields, the additional dataset present plant tissue nutrient concentrations and soil structure evaluation as well as a comparison of organic matter analysis from three laboratories and a comparison of two aggregate stability assessment methods.
