Resource explained: 

Organic commercial market gardener Charles Dowding has devoted many years to experimenting with digging and not-digging his soils, carefully documenting comparative trials to build up a great evidence base whilst also running a successful horticulture business. In this podcast he tells us about some of his findings over the years, how the latest revelations in soil biology make sense of some of his findings, and we hear particularly about the surprising results from his latest forking trial.
