Global Symposium on Soils for Nutrition

Virtual - , 26/07/2022 - 29/07/2022

The Global Symposium on Soils for Nutrition -  “Soils, where food begins,” will be held in a virtual format from 26 to 29 July 2022. The Symposium will bring science and policy together to review the status and challenges of soil fertility in relation with crop, animal and human nutrition. Humans, like plants, and animals, need sufficient food to survive. But food must be safe and nutritious not only to provide energy and basic nutrients, but also to prevent disease and the intake of harmful toxins. About 95 percent of our food comes from soils, which have a natural capacity to support plant growth by providing them with nutrients through the soil solution.
