The King Bhumibol World Soil Day Award for 2022 has been awarded to two Mexican soil specialists.

Prof. Dr. Elizabeth Solleiro Rebolledo, a soil researcher at the Instituto de Geologia of the Universidad Nacional Aut?noma de Mรฉxico, and Axel Ceron Gonzalez, vice chairman of the Mexican Soil Science Society, received the award on December 5 from Alongkorn Ponlaboot, a ministerial advisor for the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

The names of the prize winners were unveiled during this year’s ceremony in Tak province under the subject “Soils: the Origin of Food,” according to Deputy Government Spokesperson Traisulee Traisaranakul.

The ceremony, according to the deputy government spokesman, was staged to celebrate His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great’s lifelong efforts and commitment, which considerably enhanced the quality of life for millions of people via sustainable soil management.

The prize, given to people who have made significant contributions to soil management research and development, includes a medal, a $15,000 payment, and a trip to Thailand.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has issued the Global Status of Black Soils Report in connection with World Soil Day on December 5. According to the paper, black soils, which are high in carbon and exceptionally productive, cover 725 million hectares of land and account for 5% of the world’s soils.
