There are signs that the quality of the soil is deteriorating in large parts of the Dutch farmland. In its capacity as executor of the State’s private law management of agricultural land, the National Real Estate Agency (RVB) wants to investigate how landlords can encourage tenants to use the land in such a way as to safeguard soil quality. On the basis of document and website analysis, literature research, interviews, a workshop and expert judgement the agricultural and legal possibilities to include measures for sustainable soil management in lease agreements, private management agreements and generic regulations have been identified.
