Soil Nutrient Depletion

Soil nutrient depletion, due to the intensification of land use for agricultural production, is a serious threat to food security in developing countries. It adversely reduces crop yield and consequently poses a potential threat to global food production and agricultural sustainability. Consumption of crops grown in low-nutrient soil can lead to deficiencies of minerals and micronutrients in humans.
