Soil erosion has become a growing problem as Climate Change destroys soil through droughts and floods. But a World Bank supported practice known as Conservation Agriculture not only protects the soil, it also saves farmers time and money.

Just a correction. You said the 19th century saw the dust bowl destroying the plains. It was the early 1930s to the 1950s. That's the 20th century. The dust bowl happened in the 20th century. Otherwise, love it.

Im so sick the disease scares from dust blowing from other countries because of monocultured crops' soil degradation. Start your gardens now. no till, permaculture, whatever, just something. Rationing seems like something our great grandparents had to deal with in the dust bowl, but its quickly becoming what we or the next generation are going to have to face.

Glad to hear that the World Bank is pro Regenerative Agriculture. An increased use of herbicide certainly isn't a sustainable answer though.

World Bank is part of the UN and never mention about the Bible principles neither Jehovah God. www.condit-energy.org you see what is farming from God
