"Healthy soils are the foundation of the food system. Our soils are the basis for agriculture & the medium in which nearly all food-producing plants grow. Healthy soils produce healthy crops that in turn nourish people & animals. Indeed, soil quality is directly linked to food quality & quantity. With a global population that is projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, compounded by competition for land and water resources & the impact of climate [destabilizing], our current & future food…

Conservation agriculture: an overview - We must protect the environment that feeds us. We must protect our families. While we have produced food crops through conventional tillage for many years, this has come at great cost to our environment and soil productivity with negative impact on our households' food security. Conservation agriculture offers us the best opportunity for climate change adaptation.

Soils and vegetation have a reciprocal relationship. Fertile soil encourages plant growth by providing plants with nutrients, acting as a water holding tank, and serving as the substrate to which plants anchor their roots. In return, vegetation, tree cover and forests prevent soil degradation and desertification by stabilizing the soil, maintaining water and nutrient cycling, and reducing water and wind erosion.
