Soil pollution-A Momentous Crisis.
Author(s): Anusree Mohan, Jyothi Sajayan
Abstract: Soil is nature’s wonderful gift and lives of all the living beings are directly or indirectly influenced by the soil in which it resides. Now soil degradation is one of the important issues faced throughout the world due to various pollutants, agrochemicals, trace elements etc. Contamination of soil by urban and industrial pollutants, such as heavy metals, toxic organic chemicals, and radionuclides may lead to toxic accumulation in arable produce and in herbage for grazing animals thus having important implications to human health. The global land degradation rate has been increased dramatically in recent years and likely to increase more in further decades.
