278 Symposium--Fertilizing for Crop Qualities That Improve Human HealthOral Session
S04 Soil Fertility & Plant Nutrition
The World Health Organization defines human health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Agriculture produces foods that nourish human health. Sustainable fertilizer use must increasingly focus on the improvement of that health-sustaining role, towards a goal of healthy and productive lives for all in the context of a burgeoning world population. This symposium will focus on several of the many linkages between human health and the use of fertilizers applying desirable principles of profitability and sustainability of nutrient use.
