An assessment of nutrient degradation in Russia’s arable soils

  • Valerii Nikolaevich KudeyarovEmail author
Science and Society


The problem of interaction between human society and the environment has become especially pressing of late. It is unreal to maintain the quality of human life at a particular level without resolving the current environmental problems, particularly the problem of arable soil degradation because of irrational land use. The soil cover accumulates nutrients and works as a biological absorber and neutralizer of pollutants. If we do not maintain and use this important component of the biosphere rationally, a global food and economic crisis is possible.
