How does desertification hurt our agriculture?



  1. 0 Votes

    Desertification is when a land has been overused or destroyed to the point where once-productive soil is no longer usable. Abused soil undergoes drought, livestock, agricultural use, and extreme salinity (where the land has been improperly irrigated and too much salt builds up), and these all help to create a desert-like environment. This hurts our agriculture because we can’t use the soil after it has been desertified. The soil is essentially killed, meaning it won’t be any good to anyone. It turns into dry dirt or sand, devoid of nutrients and unable to sustain plantlife.
