#TECHNOTIPS: Soil Conservation

soil conservationSoil conservation greatly contributes to environmental sustainability. It is a key concern among farmers not only in terms of conserving and valuing our soil, but more importantly in being able to keep it productive in the future as well. Different farming methods of soil conversation help mitigate erosion, keep fertility, avoid degradation, and minimize nature pollution due to chemicals for weed and pest control.

Although effects of soil conversation cannot be seen instantly, taking proper and timely actions today will boost the performance of fields for the years to come. Some practices that can be considered include conservation tillage, contour farming, strip cropping, crop rotation, and planting of windbreak vegetation and cover crops among others. Moreover, farmers may switch to alternative ways to control weed and pest infestations instead of chemical application.

As the demand for land to provide food, animal feeds, and fiber for clothing increases, practicing soil conservation and management will help address issues on resource security and sustainability. (Earth Observing System)
