The negative impact of our agriculture on soils

Growing food and fiber through industrial methods has devastated our soil and climate. Forecasts have predicted that global topsoils will deplete in 60 years at our current rate, while studies have proven that conventional, industrial agriculture contributes up to 25% of the emissions driving the climate crisis (source)

A 2008 report entitled "Global soil degradation" estimated that land degradation (about 2 billion hectares of land worldwide) affects 38% of the world’s cropland and has reduced water and nutrient availability (quality and access).
