World Soil Day

A special cover on World Soil day was released on 5th December 2015 at Thiruvananthapuram by the Dept. of Soil Survey and Soil Conservation, Govt. of Kerala.

The United Nations theme for this year's World Soil Day is "Soils a solid ground for life". Soils have been neglected for too long. We fail to connect soil with our food, water, climate, biodiversity and life. We must invert this tendency and take up some preserving and restoring actions. The World Soil Day campaign aims to connect people with soils and raise awareness on their critical importance in our lives.
