World Soil Day

December 5, 2016


World Soil Day celebrates the importance of soil as a critical component of the natural ecosystem. Soil contributes to the world’s supply of food, water and energy. World Soil Day is held on December 5th because it is the same day as the birthday of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej , the King of Thailand, who officially sanctioned the event.
