      Soil quality is related to what it does (functions), whereas soil health treats soil as a living biological entity that affects plant health. Through plant growth, soil health is also connected with the health of animals, human, and ecosystems within its domain. Soil health, mediated by SOC dynamics, is a strong determinant of global food and nutritional security. Improvements in soil health, along with increase in availability of water and nutrients, increases soil's resilience against extreme climate events, imparts disease-suppressive attributes, and advances sustainable development goals of the U.N.
