For the very fact that there is hardly any soil in the land of sand, the World Soil Day has become an important occasion for Dubai to spread awareness about soil conservation.
The World Soil Day, which falls on December 5, is observed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations to bring together communities to raise awareness on the importance of healthy soil and advocating for the sustainable management of soil resources.
Furthermore, soil respiration changes based on vegetation type, management applications, environmental conditions and land utilization types (Giardina et al.
Increasing significance of soil respiration resulted in several studies that focus on the subject matter.
The soil plays a major role in determining the sustainable productivity in the agricultural ecosystem.
Low Se content and availability of the soil can show selenium deficiency-related diseases such as white muscle in animals and pancreatic degeneration in poultry (Thompson and Scoot, 1970).
Bioindicators are the most important criterion of soil quality (Alkorta et al.
The objective of this work was to use traditional microbiological methods based on culture techniques to evaluate the biological quality of heavy metal-contaminated soil that has been remediated with aided phytostabilization
However, there is plenty of research evidence--and that study is just one data point--that makes me believe we can improve soil
health, and in doing so, we can increase water-holding capacity and drought resilience across a wide range of climate zones, soils
and production systems.
It can guide fertilization decisions for individual fields, and it can assess whether a soil
is likely to respond to fertilization (Cox 1994).
health is self-regulation, resilience and stability and lack of stress symptoms in a soil
as an ecosystem.
is a core component of the land system and plays a central role in the functioning of our ecosystems.
is a mixture of organic matter, minerals and living organisms, all of which contribute to the fertility of the soil

Organic matter makes up only a small part of a soil
(usually less than 5%), yet it plays a significant role in the vineyard.
