Erosion Control, Soil Deterioration

What is Soil Deterioration

|
Did you know that it can take up to 1,000 years for the earth to produce just three centimeters of soil?

When we lose 24 billion tonnes of fertile soil every year due to erosion, we also lose the opportunity for soils to feature as a prominent climate change solution. Soils store more than 4,000 billion tonnes of carbon, which means it’s a viable solution for reducing global carbon woes. Zoom in from this global picture […]
