Abstract

This comprehensive document addresses the pressing issue of deteriorating soil health in agriculture and offers a roadmap to safeguard this vital resource. It highlights the challenges stemming from cultural factors, the agrochemical industry, and inadequate government policies, while emphasizing the urgency of action. The importance of soil organisms and monitoring techniques is underscored, along with the critical practice of maintaining continuous plant cover over bare soil. Seven key strategies to increase soil organic matter levels are presented, concluding with a call to prioritize soil protection akin to water and air.
