Why Soil Foodweb?
Historically, soils have not received the respect nor the attention they deserve. Soil Mechanical and biological processes have not been as well understood as they need to be because the green revolution (new fertilisers, pest control chemicals and genetically enhanced plants) has masked the severity of the crisis. In addition, the degradation of soils through nutrient loss, infertility, increased salinity, erosion and desertification has been identified by the United Nations as one of the most serious threats facing humanity today. Healthy soils are as essential as clean air and water, and protecting these basic elements should be the foundation of all sustainability policies. Globally, plants provide, either directly or indirectly, 99.7% of all food calories for the planet.1 Soil conservation and management should be the top priority of all nations, and appropriately the UN has designated 2015 as the International Year of Soils.
