CEN Workshop Agreement on 'Methodology to quantify the global agricultural crop footprint including soil affection'

The CEN Workshop specifies a methodology for identifying, characterizing, and implementing a single indicator to assess the quality and degradation of agricultural soils and the overall impact of the agriculture processes.
