Soils

Soils in the Corangamite region

 

In their natural, undisturbed state soils tend to be healthy, they support local life in various forms that have adapted to and influenced the characteristics of the local soil.

In the Corangamite region activities such as agriculture, forestry or urban development can lead to soil disturbance which can result in unintended degradation of soil health.

The Corangamite Soil Health Strategy aims to guide investment in a range of actions that will protect and enhance assets in the Corangamite region from a number of soil-based threats or threatening processes.

The strategy identifies specific assets that should be protected or enhanced, the various threats, the asset managers and other stakeholders who have been involved in its development and will potentially be involved in its implementation.
