Why soil is crucial for our survival on this planet
Soil is a non-renewable resource; the basis for food, feed, fuel and ecosystem services. Soil is crucial for our survival, yet we take it for granted. At SoilCares, we strive to make soil visible, to raise awareness about the importance of testing soil quality and to promote sustainable soil management. We need sustainable soil management in order to make sure we can feed the ever growing population of the planet. This informative infographic by FAO explains the challenges we are currently facing, the status of our soil today and what actions are needed for its preservation.
