The EU has announced a soil strategy that aims to provide an overall policy framework for soil restoration by 2023
FREMONT, CA: The EU’s new Green Deal and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, both of which seek to combat biodiversity loss, reverse climate change, and encourage sustainable land use, place soil health at the center. The EU has announced a soil strategy that aims to provide an overall policy framework for soil restoration by 2023, including ideas for a soil health law. But, despite growing policy acknowledgement, soils are in an inferior status all across the world. According to current estimates, 33 percent of the world’s soils have already been degraded, with over 90 percent in danger of degradation by 2050.
Farmers are striving to solve these concerns in a variety of ways, including no-till or reduced-till agriculture. Planting crops without tilling the soil, which is the traditional method of preparing the soil for planting by digging, stirring, and turning it over, is a crucial component of so-called Conservation Agriculture (CA). While tilling destroys undesired plants and makes planting simpler, it is costly and time-consuming, and it can degrade soil quality by causing compaction and erosion. No-till farming is a proven soil conservation strategy that helps prevent soil erosion and runoff, said Barbra Muzata, head of communications for agrochemical business Corteva Africa Middle East, to EURACTIV.
She is active in a variety of programmes aimed at educating farmers on best practices, such as soil health, nutrients, and water management, as part of the company's 2030 Sustainability Goals. Conservation agriculture is being used on large-scale farms to improve soil fertility, increase yields, and increase revenues. Ripping is an innovative tool that may be used to eliminate the need for tilling, as it manually tears up compacted soil layers with heavy tynes or blades that break up compacted soil layers without turning them over, unlike tilling.
