There might be a drought or another Dust Bowl coming. Soil can be damaged when it loses its fertility. Soil that has lost its fertility is said to be exhausted. The type of soil loss was mostly in the large parts of the south in the late 1800s. Most of the farmers left their farms. Also the soils in which cotton had been grown were exhausted.
