Good soil, good food

There is no good food without good water and good soil. Wageningen UR is a recognized centre for soil expertise and houses the ISCRIC, an international centre for soil information. This centre manages information about different soil types across the globe.

Soil experts from all over the world use this information to restore and improve the fertility of the soil in their country. This is how Wageningen UR contributes to improving the quality of life.


The demand for good quality, detailed soil information is growing. The soil information platform of ISRIC provides access to a wide range of soil data. For instance, to SoilGrids, a new database that contains information on soil types and properties, covering the whole world, with a resolutiuon of 1 kilometre.
