Impact of Climate Change on Decreasing Biodiversity of Soil Organisms

Agriculture as a resource that supports the economy of a country is a sector that is vulnerable to climate change. Climate change can trigger a food crisis. This is because climate change will cause crop failure due to erratic rainfall patterns. This erratic rainfall pattern results in plants not getting water at the time and amount that matches the needs of the plant. There are other things that need to be considered, namely the impact of climate change on decreasing biodiversity of soil organisms.

Acceleration of Erosion on Agricultural Land Due to Climate Change

Farmers must prevent accelerated erosion on their farms. Erosion on agricultural land can cause loss of upper soil layers.Farmers must prevent accelerated erosion on their farms. Erosion on agricultural land can cause loss of upper soil layers. This is because erosion can result in the loss of nutrients needed plants to grow and develop optimally. Erosion on agricultural land can cause loss of upper soil layers. If this happens, it will be very detrimental to farmers and planters. The loss of topsoil can cause a decrease in the levels of organic matter, increase in soil compaction, decrease in soil aggregate stability, increase in aluminum saturation and decrease in soil exchange capacity.
