How long does it take soil to recover from being over farmed?

    Mismanaged farmland takes decades to recover naturally. It would be the equivalent of growing an entire forest from scratch. First weeds have to reclaim the land and die out in large numbers to sustain a fertile ground for the first shrubs, then small trees. The fertility of the farmland will depend upon the plants with high ecological succession that can grow there.
