How does this Have an affect on Soil Health and Food?
The increase on demand for food production results from population growth. Farmers begin to cultivate dry, hilly, nutrient-poor areas that are not very suitable for farming since the farmable land in overpopulated regions is limited. When expolited lands, are more susceptible to lose nutrients.
It is estimated that 1.2 billion hectares of land, approximately the size of Europe, U.S. and Mexico combined, have lost much of their agricultural output capability in the last 50 years.
