2015 International Year of Soils

The UN Food and Agricultural Organization says 33% of global soils are being degraded right now. It’s reminding us that is can take up to 1,000 years for one centimetre of new soil to form.

The goal of the International Year of Soils is to encourage everyone, especially farmers, to improve soil management. This is being done through over 120 soil related projects.
