Keeping on the theme of todays World Soil Day, “Caring for the planet starts from the ground”. Are we actually caring for our soil?
There have been a few articles recently discussing this topic, both nationally and internationally, from the UK, USA and our productive soils around Auckland being lost to subdivisons? What do you think?
A continuing theme of articles:
Only 60 Years of Farming Left If Soil Degradation Continues – Scientific American
UK is 30-40 years away from ‘eradication of soil fertility’, warns Gove – The Guardian, UK
Report adds fuel to soil protection calls – FarmersWeekly NZ
Lets keep the conversation going, grow soil awareness!
