World of soil and why it is important for life

Earth is the only planet in the solar system in which there is life and the biggest reason for life is soil on this earth.


Soil like a loose material and provides the support to grow plants used in agriculture and is also their source of water and nutrients.soil which has completely covered the earth's land has not only covered it but it has also given life to the animals and birds living on the earth to humans. Soil is a very important thing for this earth and for the life living in it like animals, birds, humans, trees, plants cannot survive but now this soil is dying because soil is living thing.Dying of soil or the soil particles are loosened or washed away in the valleys, oceans, rivers, streams or far away lands. This has been worsening due to human activities such as agriculture and deforestation that process called soil erosion.due to the death of the soil or soil erosion, today soil not being fertile, all these problems are arising in the cultivation of trees and plants.



Soil provides ecosystem services critical for life: soil acts as a water filter and a growing medium; provides habitat for billions of organisms, contributing to biodiversity; and supplies most of the antibiotics used to fight diseases. Humans use soil as a holding facility for solid waste, filter for wastewater, and foundation for our cities and towns. Finally, soil is the basis of our nation’s agroecosystems which provide us with feed, fiber, food and fuel.



There are lot of things which you can damage the soil is chemical pollution,air pollution, Urbanization, logging, mining, overgrazing, fires, leaching etc out of minerals all damage soils. 



One of the many reasons why soil is dying today is plastic. Today, where science has provided many comforts to human beings, on the other hand, these facilities have also created many terrible problems. Plastic is one of all the things made by man. Nowadays the environment has become a cause of concern for the whole country. National invention has made the world colorful and has also given rise to many problems. Today, from liquids to heavy goods, packing plastic bags has started in the age because it is convenient today all around the road garden garden school college Plastic envelopes can be seen flying everywhere in the field, small and big, all throw these vacant posts here and there, due to travel activities, even the mountains have not been better than them, but this writing of plastic has remained the cause of many diseases. They are also blocking the camps, in the past, animals get sick by eating the lungs of these writers, if the sins found on the streets go along with others, then its smoke causes respiratory diseases, they are associated with people as Bhairav. It is also dangerous to use because plastic is not a fault in the land, to end these problems, the society will have to be alert and ban the manufacture of plastic bags.



How soil is formed?

Soil is the uppermost or thin layer of material covering the earth’s surface or land .soil is formed from the breaking of rocks and it breaks into little pieces rainfall organic materials and due to temperature over the long period of time like hundreds 200 years to 400 years or more. It is made up mainly of mineral particles, organic materials, air, water and living organisms. It takes 200 to 400 years or more to form one centimeter of soil.



Fertilizer it is a chemical substance which is used to increase the fertility of soil. It includes nitrogen potassium and phosphorus. Excessive use of fertilizer can damage the soil and it can also reduce the fertility of soil . Fertilizer is a major cause of dying of soil . Scientists trying to make a fertilizer that increase fertility of soil but the most effective and organic fertilizer is fertilizer is cow dung.Cow dung is not only an agricultural waste, but also an organic fertilizer resource it improve the fertility of soil.



Cow dung manure for plants is an awesome fertilizer as comparison to chemical fertilizers. It is highly rich with organic matter which help to improve fertility of soil.






If humans keep on ruining our environment like this, one day the earth which is the only planet in the solar system which has life will also not exist and if we do not do anything now then we will not be able to do anything later.
