There are 29 species of earthworm living freely in soils in the UK. They are vital to the economic health of our country, as they are crucial for soil health, food production, waste decomposition and even flood mitigation. It is therefore vital that the impacts of agricultural practices on earthworm populations and diversity are considered.
