MEETING ON SOILS CRISIS


Leading international researchers will meet in Brisbane today to discuss what to do about an emerging crisis in the world's food-producing soils.

The conference will also explore new ways that agriculture can help limit climate change, by using arable soils to store vast amounts of carbon.

The International Soil Tillage Research Organisation (ISTRO) holds its global conference at the University of Queensland, St Lucia, Qld, from July 14-18, 2003.
