World Soil Day

Illinois has some of the most fertile farmland in the world. On December 5, World Soil Day brings attention to the importance of healthy soil and for the use of safe and sustainable practices when using the land. We all need good soil to ensure we can feed the people of our state and nation, and today is a good reminder about ways we can improve soil health in Illinois.
