The soil in Staffort and its surrounding is particularly suitable for growing asparagus, new potatoes, cucumbers and tobacco. The water-permeable, sandy soil (pH 6.8 - 7.2) contains low levels of loam and humus, meaning that roots can be harvested quite cleanly. The soil heats up rapidly, dries out quickly and can be processed again shortly after it has rained. Due to the permeability of the soil to rain, however, it requires frequent irrigation in the summer. Only composts are used to fertilise the soil. As expected, soil analyses to date have not revealed any evidence (not even traces) of heavy metal contaminants.
