A Soil Science Must Read for Everyone
May 12, 2015
Earlier this month, the journal Science published an article entitled “Soil and human security in the 21st century”, a must read for everyone, not just those already concerned about agricultural sustainability. In the article, the authors spell out the effects of soil “domestication” for agricultural production and the interactions with climate change forces, discuss the potential for global food insecurity and in general, make the case that we are unsustainable. Most importantly, they argue that the time for change is NOW if we want to pass on an earth with a sustainable future for generations to come.
