IYS Soil message
by the Italian Society of Soil Science (SISS)
Modern humans rarely reflects on the fact that both the well-being and the quality of life are fundamentally linked to the quality of the soils. The quality of human life depends indeed on the soil’s health on which we live carrying out any activity. Thus maintaining healthy soils and the quality of soil productions is the real target of any kind of sustainable development.
