Limited Soil

See the picture above that's how most of our soil is. Since the soil is dry the water will just slide off unless someone makes hole so the water can just slide in and the soil will have more moister in it. WE NEED MORE FERTILE SOIL!!!!!www.featurepics.com

Dust Bowl

Do you know what the Dust Bowl is? The Dust Bowl moved all the good fertile soil and dry dirt particles were left so the farmers lost the fertile soil. This took place in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico. By 1930's almost all the great plains had been turned into farms or ranches. www.pbs.org

Solution

The solution to this this problem is to make the soil fertile again you can do that by contour plowing, conversation plowing, and crop rotation. Contour plowing- is to plow along contours of the field to minimize the soil erosion. Conversation plowing to plow in a curve instead of a straight line to prevent a rainfall which is the same as contour plowing. Crop rotation is to plant crops and help control insects and diseases.
