Healthy soil

Healthy soil

World Soil Day was celebrated yesterday (December 5) all over the world. On this day, countries pledged to pay attention to the pressing issues affecting soils, including climate change, antimicrobial resistance, soil-borne diseases and contamination. We cannot stress enough on the importance of healthy soil.
Pakistan is also an agricultural country. Awareness campaigns should be launched to assist farmers on how they can optimise the use of soil. They should be told why crop rotation is necessary to save soil from harmful and unwanted bacteria. Many farmers in our country are uneducated. They do not know what is good for the soil. It is our responsibility to educate them and to improve crop yields.
