"Australia needs a nationwide effort to raise soil fertility, guarantee food security and a healthy diet – and lock up carbon.


The call comes from the Australian Soil Consortium (ASC), a group of leading farmers, agribusiness companies and scientists who are concerned for the future of one of the nation’s most valuable assets."
