Soils in Food Systems

Soils are vital for food production, biodiversity conservation, and climate regulation. Understanding the links between soil health, agriculture, and environmental sustainability is essential to achieve food security and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This Collection highlights primary research, reviews, and commentary pieces on the latest advances in agricultural soil management, soil microbiology and biogeochemistry from across the Nature Portfolio. We hope this collection will stimulate conversations across research communities and guide future policy choices.
