Sustaining soil quality in dryland regions

Sustaining soil quality in dryland regions

Desertification Control Bulletin ( 28): 24-27

Soil degradation processes including erosion, loss of organic matter, compaction, crusting, acidification, salinization, toxicity, nutrient losses, and waterlogging affect soil quality and productivity. Examples are given from the Great Plains in the USA, where the 'Dust Bowl' was described as the worst ecological disaster recorded.
