What is soil degradation?



  1. 0 Votes

    Soil degradation can refer to any number of things that lower the quality of the soil. This can include loss of nutrients, high erosion rates, acidification, increasing salinity, compaction, and chemical contamination. Any of these things can cause soils to be less productive at best and unusable at worst.

    Soil degradation occurs where our activities (either directly or indirectly) cause it to become less vigorous or less healthy. The ultimate degradation is the removal or loss of its physical components. Acidification, salinity, organic depletion, compaction, nutrient depletion, chemical contamination, landslides, and erosion are all forms of soil degradation that are brought by bad land use.
