Soil Health is the New Wealth

Soil health embodies the enduring ability of soil to operate as a dynamic living ecosystem, essential for sustaining plants, animals, and humans alike. It is a crucial nexus, bridging agricultural and soil sciences with policy frameworks, addressing stakeholder needs, and fostering sustainable supply-chain management.
