Start Date: 11 January 2008 | End Date: 31 October 2012


The aim of this project is that farming communities, extension services, development workers, project designers, planners, policy makers, the private sector, and scientists will have freely available access to a reliable, flexible and dynamic soil-health information service for the ultimate benefit of the African smallholder farm family. It will provide accurate, up-to-date information about soil re-sources and their management to support policy and action on food and water security, production, and regulating and supporting ecosystem services. This soil information will be essential to increase land productivity and food production, arrest hunger and ecosystem degradation, and to adapt to climate change in Africa.
