New Delhi: Did you know that December 5 is celebrated as World Soil Day every year? It is done to attract people's attention on the importance of healthy soil as well as stress on the importance of sustainable management of soil resources. In 2019, the day was celebrated through 560 events in more than 100 countries.

Soil is home to more than one-fourth of the Earth's biodiversity.
