Launch of the Wageningen Soil Network

 
Launch of the Wageningen Soil Network

The soil expertise of Wageningen sets the tone. As much as in describing the physical properties of the soil, the relationships between the soil and climate, the improvement of soil fertility, as well as in gaining insight into soil life: ‘Wageningen’ delivers the views that local and global parties are looking for to improve the use of the soil on behalf of the current and future generations.

So far the Wageningen Soil Network is comprised of ISRIC - World Soil Information, Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW), the Centre for Soil Ecology, Alterra Wageningen UR, Wageningen University (Departments of Environmental Sciences and of Plant Sciences), Applied Plant Research (PPO) and Plant Research International (PRI) Wageningen UR.

The official launch (26 January) included placing a stone in the Wageningen Walk of Fame as well as scientific programme.
