Why The World Is Running Out Of Soil
The United Nations declared soil finite and predictedcatastrophic loss within 60 years. The impact of soil degradation could total $23 trillion inlosses of food, ecosystem services and income worldwide by 2050. Soil is the habitat for over a quarter of the planet'sbiodiversity, so it plays a. very important role in mitigating climate change. Climate change cannot be separated from food insecurity,from the loss of biodiversity and from. pollution. The Rodale Institute says it starts with soil. The farm here works on regenerative, organic agriculture. We grow almost everything that you can grow in Pennsylvaniafrom corn and soybean, wheat,. oats to forages, alfalfa.. This is kale. This is actually the birthplace of modern organicagriculture. Projects we do here all are centered around improving andrebuilding soil health. We have farming system trial that's been running for 42years. It is the longest running side by side comparison of organicand conventional grain cropping systems. in North America. The decades long research has found organic agricultureproduces yields up to 40% higher during droughts,. can earn farmers greater profits and releases 40% fewercarbon emissions. How is all of that possible?. The rodale institute says it start with soil.. So when we talk about healthy soil, we are talking about allaspects of the soil, chemical, physical and. biological that should be in a perfect status to be able toproduce healthy food for us. After that, we have to take care of it and reverse that and ask, well, we can't just, just degrade it and leave it.. Millions of acres laid waste by thoughtlessness and neglect. It's a silent soil crisis and what thatmeans for the world.. Here's why we're facing a silent soils crisis and why we need to take action. We need to protect our soil and our food supply, cleandrinking water and a lot. more.. Out of the Dust bowl.. The past 100 years, the emphasis was on what can soil do forplants and what can soils do for people.. Tons of priceless topsoil.. And we're now realizing we have a lot more to do with soil than just plant and plant and grow. We're in the midst of a revolution in organic agriculture that is changing the way we eat and grow food in the U.S. and the rest of the world. We are in the middle of a renaissance in organic farming. We want to make sure that we don't repeat the mistakes of the past. We don't want to be the same as the Dust Bowl, we want to create a new era of regenerative agriculture in the United States and around the world that is sustainable and regenerative and healthy for all of us. We also want to ensure that we're not the same place we were 100 years ago, when soil was the only thing we had to worry about. We've got a long way to go before we can get back to where we were in the Dustbowl, but we're getting closer to that point, and we're taking steps to ensure we're on the right track. We can't wait to see what the future holds for us, and it's going to be a very exciting time. We'll be able to look back and see how far we've come in the next 100 years. We hope to see a much healthier, more sustainable, more resilient and resilient world. It will be a better place to live in the years to come, and a much more sustainable and prosperous place to grow food and drink and grow and bathe in the water that we all rely on. We will have to work together to ensure the future of our children and our grandchildren. We all have a long road ahead of us to get to the next generation, and that's what we're all here to do. We must work together for a better, healthier, and more sustainable world.
