Deep sandy soils typically have very poor fertility, low organic matter and are severely water repellent. They can be environmentally hazardous posing a severe erosion risk and creating difficulty in controlling weeds. Further, there are very few viable options for these soils except Tagasaste and Pine trees.

The project aimed to determine whether Lebeckia could be employed as a solution for these soils by addressing criteria broadly divided into two main categories:

1. Can Lebeckia reduce the environmental risks of DSS and arrest their decline?
2. Is Lebeckia a viable economic solution for DSS?

Although it was not possible to conclusively answer these questions within the scope of this project, we could conclude that Lebeckia does provide a sustainable (both economic and environmental) long term solution on these difficult soils and can increase the soil health.
