Question:

What is soil degradation and which human actions are the main causes of this environmental issue?

Georgia B.
Answer:

Soil degradation is the loss of sustainable topsoil on the planet. There are several human actions that can cause this problem. One action is over farming the land by planting the same crop each year. Another cause is using land to build on and depleting the topsoil available for ecosystems. One more cause to mention is land pollution. This destroys the quality of the soil and makes it unusable.
