The Future of Our Food System Depends on Healthy Soils – and Policies That Support Soil Stewardship
Civil Eats - 8/27/2013.
By Sasha Lyutse - Healthy soils are the foundation of a healthy food system. These soils teem with life: earthworms create water channels as the burrow through the soil, allowing rain to soak in; residues from previous crops help soil retain moisture, suppress weeds, and prevent erosion and runoff; microorganisms help filter contaminates and form the glue that helps keep soil intact; and cover crops – second crops planted to protect and improve soil health during the off-season – deliver natural fertilizer to the soil, prevent erosion, increase biodiversity, and improve water filtration as their roots create pores in the soil. Together, all of this works to create healthier crops.
