Why Is Soil Health So Important?

This star-studded panel from the 2020 Eco-Ag Conference virtual event discusses The Role of Soil in Global Peace and Security, featuring Dr. VandanaShiva, Dr. Rattan Lal, John Ikerd, and Bob Quinn. Soil health plays an integral role in creating productive, resilient farm operations but it is also inextricably tied to so much more. Food security, nutritional security, the economic and mental well-being of our rural agricultural communities, and the wellness of our natural resources and climate all depend on the health of one of our most valuable resources: soil. We gathered some of the world’s best thought-leaders in agriculture to discuss these relationships and ultimately the role of soil plays in global peace and security. Led by Acres U.S.A. editor and Tractor Time podcast host Ben Trollinger. #soil
