About the soil,drought,and dust bowl
In times of droughts, the topsoil quickly turned to dust and blew away. Since the drought got bigger, the soil turned into dust, and this affected the Great Plains. Farmers and people started to appreciate the value of the soil, once the dust affected there lands. Now that people and farmers appreciate the soil, they have to adapt to new methods and other methods that have been practice for a long time. These methods are soil conservation, contour plowing, conservation plowing, and crop rotation.
