Humans, like microorganisms, plants, and animals, need sufficient food to survive. But food must be safe and nutritious not only to provide energy and basic nutrients, but also to prevent disease and the intake of harmful toxic substances. About 95 percent of our food nutrients come from soils, which have a natural capacity to support plants by providing them with nutrients through the soil solution.

The symposium is expected to identify critical knowledge gaps and provide the basis for discussion on solutions that can provide more nutritious agri-food systems for enhanced human health and wellbeing while protecting the environment.
