Due to increasing global warming and the associated increase in drought and extreme weather events, soils are drying out even more. Valuable arable land is being washed away because there is no longer any support. In order to still allow plant growth, more fertiliser is applied, which places even more strain on the soil and additionally pollutes the groundwater. The nitrate limits of the groundwater in Germany are already exceeded in many places. This is particularly dangerous for babies and pregnant women.
Once the soil has become wasteland it is very difficult to make it usable for the landscape again. Over several generations it is lost for the production of food.
One solution can be organic farming with changing crop rotations.
In addition, everyone can contribute with the choice of their food to improve and maintain the extinction of species in the soil and the quality of the soil. A good possibility is to buy food from organic farming.
