This short animation introduces the new book “Soils and Pulses: symbiosis for life”. Pulses contribute to soil health, food security and nutrition, and climate change adaptation and mitigation. Their actions on Nitrogen fixation, phosphate ions solubilisation, and soil organic matter content increase benefit other plants and participate to protecting soils and enhancing soil production capacities. Sustainable soil management (eg. Inter-cropping, crop rotation, use of pulses…) will eventually contribute to achieve the SDGs.
