A way to maintain and enrich the soil has been in the works for a very long time, but have been swept under the rug for the most part because of how much more profitable it can be to damage the soil, not purposely, to make it more efficient for the right here and now. There are actually ways to keep the soil rich with nutrients for years to come and the answer might be more simple than we all think.
- Raw materials and food are being produced faster and faster ever since the Industrial Revolution.
- These mass production processes are not necessarily healthy as soil fertility is way down yet somehow more crops are being produced.
- Agriculture is currently unbalanced and because of this crops are being killed and soil is being eroded which supposedly plays a role in climate change.
