The thought of this happening is pretty dire but the harsh truth is that a lot of arable soil is already gone due to poor treatment and exploitation and the percentage will continue to rise.
This brings a lot of problems to the local communities witch rely on that land.
Soil pollution leads to lower yield rates and lower quality of the food grown witch ten leads to hunger and famine.
But not only the soil we grow our produce on is threatened, also many ecosystems and their are facing major threats from agriculture, pollution and climate-change.
One example for that is the continued destruction of rain forests all around the world to make room for more agriculture, witch then uses the soil for a while to get insanely high yields, much more than it can handle and in return turning it into barren wasteland completely devoid of life.
To protect all the fertile soil all around the world, the united nations declared in 2013 that the 5. of December is The World Soil Day.
This year the World Soil Day is focusing on raising awareness to stop soil pollution.
