Volume 1Period: Jan, 2014 to Dec, 2015Bhopal ChapterY O F SOSILAN SOCDITIENo. 1C I EN2015CInternationalYear of Soilsof Indian Society of Soil ScienceHealthy Soils for a Healthy LifeEINat ICAR-Indian Institute of Soil ScienceNewsletterPresident's RemarksPatron's MessageIt fills my heart with joy to knowthat the 68th UN General Assembly has officially recognized the2015 as the International Year ofSoils. This has been possiblebecause of untiring efforts of hisMajesty King Bhumibol of Thiland,International Union of SoilScience (IUSS), and the FAOGlobal Soil Partnership (GSP),and we all must thank them for their achievement. Thisofficial recognition emphasizes the importance of soilsbeyond the soil science. However, this also reposes agreater responsibility to Soil Scientists towards not onlytheir usual role of doing research on the management ofsoil resources but also towards creating an awarenessamong people on the roles and functions of soils in thesustenance of whole civilization. In this endeavour, theInternational Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) hasannounced to cooperate with United Nations, and otherorganizations to improve the scientific knowledge and topromote the global acceptance of soils as one of themost important natural resources. Several otherinternational organization viz., Food and AgriculturalOrganization, British Society of Soil Science; The SoilScience Society of America and others are celebratingthe year with new programmes and initiatives to educatethe society on soils. In this bandwagon, ICAR-IndianInstitute of Soil Science feels proud and privileged incelebrating the International Year of Soils 2015 withgreat zeal and energy. The main goal of the InternationalYear of Soils 2015 (IYS) is to raise awareness about theimportance of healthy soils and to advocate for sustainable soil management in order to protect this preciousnatural resource.This was a maiden attempt on the part of Chapter tocompile all the activity during 2014-15 in the form of anews letter, and I appreciate this modest attempt.Bhopal Chapter of Indian Society ofSoil Science was established in amodest way with approximately 25memberships during 1994, now ithas expanded and recognized asone of the vibrant chapters of ISSSfor promoting the objectives ofmain society and providing theplatform for interaction among soilscientists working in differentorganizations in the State. This chapter comprises of thelargest member of soil scientists and scientists andmembers from allied fields. This chapter feels privilegedin organizing various events and programmes with greatzeal and energy to sensitize various stakeholders in theCountry.Since establishment, the Chapter wasactively involved in a number ofactivities related to research,education and transfer of technology inthe field of soil science in organizingsymposia, invited/guest lectures,seminars, discussions, etc. forstudents and scientists and also tocreate awareness among schoolchildren. Bringing the activities of theBhopal Chapter in the form ofnewsletter to commemorate WorldSoil Day on 5th December as well as International Year ofSoils 2015 will be befitting tribute to Soil.Activities of the chapter include organizing variousmeetings, lectures soil awareness programmes onWorld Soil Day and International Year of Soil 2015through drawing competition, elocution competition,panel discussion, quiz programmes, farmer's trainingand meetings.Dr. Ashok K.

1.Invited lecture by Prof. Rattan Lal, Ohio StateUniversity (OSU), ColumbusDistinguished Prof. Rattan Lal, Ohio State University(OSU), Columbus delivered a lecture on “Climate StrategicAgriculture” during his visit to IISS, 12th March, 2014. About60 members representing Scientists from IISS and CIAE,Research Associates, Senior Research Fellows andStudents participated in the event.2.Invited lecture by Prof. Lingaraj Sahoo, IITGuwahati and Dr. Junpei Takano, JapanProf. Lingaraj Sahoo, Dept of Biotechnology, IIT-Guwahatiand Dr. Junpei Takano, Hokkaido university, Japandelivered guest lectures on 3rd November, 2014. Dr. JunpeiTakano delivered a talk on “Boron Transport in Plants”. Healso highlighted that the Boron deficiency is a world-wide2agricultural problem affecting yield of various crop plants.Boron mainly exists as uncharged boric acid in solution,and thus is relatively easily transported acrossmembranes in plant cells. However, their analysis of Btransport using Arabidopsis thaliana identified a boric acidchannel NIP5;1 and a boric acid/borate exporter BOR1,required for efficient B uptake and translocation under lowB conditions. He also highlighted the mechanismsunderlying the polar localization and the vacuolartrafficking of boric acid/borate transporters. To overcomethe problem of B deficiency in agriculture, a promisingapproach is generation of B-efficient cultivar using boricacid/borate transporters. He indicated that overexpression of AtBOR1 improved B translocation and seedyield under low B conditions. Scientists are working atHokkaido University to apply this technique to crop plantsto improve B-use efficiency in the field. Prof. LingarajSahoo delivered talk on 'Crop Improvement Programme'.During his lecture he briefed about the crop improvementprogramme at IIT and also emphasized for the need fortransgenic plant to overcome salt and drought tolerance inannual crops. He also highlighted the work ofdevelopment of transgenic mustard and cowpea for saltand drought tolerance at IIT Guwahati in collaboration withHokkaido University, Japan.About 50 members representing Scientists, ResearchAssociates, Senior Research Fellow and Studentsparticipated in the event.Bhopal Chapter of ISSSNewsletter
