Soil is Alive

Agrarian Professional School PROFAGRI, Battipaglia, Italy

For the World Soil Day a tribute to our most important terrestrial resource, the soil, is given. The seminar will be held at the agrarian professional school PROFAGRI of Battipaglia (Italy) and all the students of the school will be involved in this important project. The title of the seminar is “Soil is Alive”, and all aspects of interaction and communication between soil, microorganisms and plants will be analysed. The codification of this language is crucial to preserve the health of our planet.
