So far, nearly 80,000 national environmental monitoring points have been monitored. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the Ministry of Eco-Environment have jointly issued the National Soil Environmental Monitoring Network's Work Plan for Soil Environmental Monitoring of Agricultural Product Producing Areas to clarify the five key tasks of soil environmental monitoring in agricultural product producing areas. In the eyes of many industry players, the soil monitoring industry chain will once again enter a rapid growth period.
Approximately 80,000 monitoring sites accelerated to enter the site. The soil environment monitoring sector accelerated the temperature increase. Covering the country's soil environment is accelerating. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs have recently released the National Soil Environmental Monitoring Network Soil Environment Monitoring Work Program for Agricultural Product Producing Areas (hereinafter referred to as the 'Program'). Based on the quality and safety of agricultural products, the agricultural and rural departments will lay out the risk points of agricultural product origin and carry out coordinated monitoring of soil and agricultural products in agricultural product origin; the ecological environment department is responsible for the monitoring of background points, basic points and risk monitoring points. In the future, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment will work with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs to publish information on the status of agricultural land soil environment. The 'Proposal' puts forward five key tasks including determining the location of soil environment monitoring in agricultural product producing areas, constructing a working system, conducting routine monitoring, strengthening the summary of results, and releasing information on the status of soil environment. In accordance with the unified deployment of the State Network and the requirements of relevant technical documents, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs is responsible for organizing agricultural and rural departments at all levels to carry out soil environmental monitoring of agricultural product producing areas, monitoring soil samples and agricultural product samples once a year. In order to obtain authoritative, unified and high-precision soil environment survey data, establish a national soil environment information management platform, and provide a scientific basis for the comprehensive implementation of the soil pollution prevention and control action plan. At present, the soil environment monitoring network has been initially established. At the beginning of 2018, the original three departments of environmental protection, agriculture, and land reached an agreement to include about 40,000 sites in the land and agriculture departments into the network of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment to work together to monitor the soil. According to the goal of 'clarifying the status quo and taking into account risks', there are nearly 80,000 national control points for soil environment monitoring, which are 38880 monitoring points by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, 40061 monitoring points by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural 1000 monitoring points in the Ministry of Resources. These national control points include background points, basic points and risk monitoring points. 'Unclear family background' was a major problem in the prevention and control of soil pollution. Due to the difficulty, investment, and long cycle time, the core of soil remediation is risk management. That is, different control measures should be taken according to different uses. The core is to control the risk of soil pollution and realize the safe use of land, rather than simply relying on huge investment. As early as two years ago, the former Ministry of Environmental Protection has continuously carried out routine soil environmental monitoring work, and the program has initially implemented centralized sampling, centralized sample preparation and off-site monitoring. So far, the soil environment monitoring network is under construction, and routine monitoring is still in the initial stage and pilot stage. Different from air and water environmental quality monitoring, my country's soil environmental monitoring started late, and implementation of the separation of mining and monitoring from the beginning of monitoring to avoid local intervention to ensure the authenticity and effectiveness of the monitoring data. This detailed investigation will further clarify the area and distribution of agricultural land soil pollution and its impact on the quality of agricultural products on the basis of existing investigations, and grasp the distribution of polluted land and environmental risks in the land of enterprises in key industries. According to public information, the key areas of agricultural land are surveyed with the help of a 500-meter × 500-meter grid, and the general area is set with a 1,000-meter × 1000-meter grid. According to the 'Tu Shitiao' ('Soil Pollution Prevention Action Plan') released in May 2016, all counties (cities, districts) of soil environmental quality monitoring sites will be fully covered by the end of 2020. In addition to the top-level design, there are real gold and silver support. From 2015 to 2017, the central government’s budget for soil pollution prevention was 3.701 billion yuan, 9.09 billion yuan, and 11.2 billion yuan, respectively. 'In the future, the number of soil environmental monitoring points that the public will see will be higher than the current number, higher in density, and the monitoring functions will continue to expand, so as to play a better basic supporting role.' The detailed investigation work plan will be completed by the end of 2020 , After consultation with the department, data sharing, analysis and sorting, it will be released to the society after being submitted to the State Council for approval in accordance with the procedures. Against this background, as a 'pioneer' in pollution prevention and control, the soil monitoring market and soil pollution remediation risk assessment sector will be the first to benefit. With the establishment of a standard system for soil pollution prevention and control, the requirements for soil monitoring technology are becoming higher and higher, and soil monitoring instruments and meters urgently need to improve the accuracy of data and data processing capabilities. And the “all-round” soil remediation enterprises whose business scope covers contaminated site investigation, risk assessment and remediation construction are more likely to be the beneficiaries of this opportunity.
