World Soil Day 2016 and the International Year of Pulses end of year celebration
Start: 18:00 GMT(+1)
World Soil Day 2016 fittingly merges the IYS 2015 and IYP 2016 with the theme "Soil & Pulses: a symbiosis for life". Under this theme, WSD 2016 highlights the multifaceted benefits of pulses not only for human health and nutrition, but also for their contribution to soil health and sustainable agriculture through the symbiotic relationship between soil and pulses created by the nitrogen fixing abilities of pulses. In celebration, a new book titled "Soils & Pulses: symbiosis for life" will be launched December the 5th.
