Soil nutrient loss, threat to nutrition, sustainable food security – NISS

According to the Nigeria Institute of Soil Science (NISS), soil nutrient loss continues to pose the biggest global hazard to nutrition and long-term food security.
This was stated in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja by Prof. Victor Chude, Registrar of the institution. He made his remarks in advance of World Soil Day (WSD), which will be observed on December 5 under the subject “Soils: Where Food Begins.”
By tackling the escalating issues in soil management, according to Chude, the globe must increase awareness of the significance of preserving healthy ecosystems and human well-being. He claims that the goal of World Soil Day is to inspire governments, organizations, communities, people, and societies to make proactive commitments to enhancing soil health.
“This particular day also aims to raise awareness of the significant contribution soil makes to achieving food security.
Additionally, the day offers a fantastic chance to include the general public and specifically target the public and private sectors of government, academia, farming, and general civil society.
The head of NISS claimed that committing to the sustainable management of soil resources globally was the only way to overcome the threat to healthy soil. The institute, according to the registrar, intended to commemorate the day with talk shows, school assignments, road walks, and discussions with decision-makers.
