The human population may double by midcentury.
Coupled with improved living standards in underdeveloped
nations, this growth will demand unprecedented
increases in agricultural production. The
great threat to meeting these needs is decreased crop
productivity caused by soil erosion. Agricultural productivity
and production value are highest in irrigated
arid areas, which tend to have shallow, highly
erodible soils. Thus, the agricultural systems most
capable of meeting future needs are also the most
threatened by erosion. Developing effective erosion
control methods to protect the sustainability of the
Earth's soil is of utmost importance.
