Climate change refers to long-term shifts in global or regional climate patterns, driven primarily by human activities like the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, which release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. These gases trap heat, leading to a warming effect known as the greenhouse effect, which contributes to climate change. Better soil practices are integral in mitigating this phenomenon by sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and improving soil health. Healthy soils act as a carbon sink, absorbing and storing carbon dioxide through processes like photosynthesis and carbon sequestration. Practices such as cover cropping, no-till farming, crop rotation, and agroforestry enhance soil organic matter, increasing its capacity to store carbon. Additionally, restoring degraded soils and preventing soil erosion help maintain ecosystems’ resilience to climate change impacts, such as extreme weather events and droughts. Through sustainable soil management practices, we can mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously enhancing agricultural productivity, biodiversity, and ecosystem resilience.
