    Soil erosion and nutrient loss have also led to decreased productivity in Calabar South and it is predicted that if erosion continues at the current rate, there will be an 87% drop in yield by Dumping of garbage underground is one of the leading causes of land pollution.   Reduce your paper consumption. The best way to do this is to avoid using disposable paper products. Paper towels, plates, cups, napkins, and other throwaway items are made from trees.

    In Australian agriculture, erosion can cause the annual loss of t/ha of soil from a pasture, 8 t/ha from a crop and up to 80 t/ha from bare fallow; Off-take of OC in plant and animal production is also an important loss of OC from soil. Soil pollution can be problematic on a number of levels. Plants growing in contaminated soils may take up toxins and die, or worse, people or animals may eat them and become poisoned. Humans or.

    Land pollution refers to all forms of pollution affecting any type of soil: agricultural, forestry, urban, etc. Soil pollution is a disruptive element for many biological resources and ecosystems. A soil is polluted when it contains an abnormal concentration of chemical compounds potentially dangerous to human health, plants or animals.   Causes of Land Pollution. Soil pollution includes any contaminants or chemicals that harm the animals or plant species. These pollutants degrade the quality of the soil, create an imbalance within the natural systems, and can also lead to erosion. The causes of pollution .

The book covers organic, inorganic and nanoparticle pollutants. Pollution of soil is having a devastating effect on the agriculture land as well as people consuming products grown in such land. It is very difficult to pin point the exact effects of soil pollution on humans, animals or even plants, yet the effects are out there for everyone to see.

Tips to Prevent Soil Pollution. Toxic chemical compounds. Soil pollution is the addition of toxic and harmful chemicals, salts, microorganisms and radioactive elements to the soil layer. These substances decrease soil fertility by reducing its mineral content.

They also adversely affect plant and animal growth. Soil pollution is a big problem, but steps are being taken to control it. Use Soil Additives, such as lime and organic matter from composting, which can adjust soil pH to sustainable levels and reduce soil erosion and pollution.

The largest threat to soil—and therefore to us—is the loss of or damage to the productive topsoil, often caused by erosion and/or poor land use practices.

Erosion and Land Use Erosion is a natural process caused by wind, water and ice that wears away the material on the land surface very slowly. Introduction. Soil pollution is caused by the presence of chemicals made by man or alteration in the natural soil environment.

This type of contamination typically grows from the rupture ofpesticides, underground storage tanks, percolation of contaminated surface water to subsurface strata, oil and fuel dumping, leaching of wastes fromlandfillsor direct discharge of industrial wastes to the soil.

Soil Pollution Facts and Prevention Tips. Soil pollution happens when soil contaminants exceed a certain threshold amount that could pose a risk to human health and ecosystem or are simply above the natural background levels.

Soil pollution can affect humans through inhalation, direct skin contact, the consumption of poisoned vegetables and fruits grown on contaminated ground, as well as the.

Effects of Soil Contamination. Climate change. Deforestation causes a change in the rain cycle and this is a contributing factor to global warming and loss of ecosystems.

Loss of soil fertility. With the rapid growth of human population, we need all the food we can get. Chemicals used on soils reduce soil fertility so food production drops.
