    We all are aware of the importance of the fertile top layer of the soil, it helps the trees and plants to grow by providing the required minerals, without this layer it is not possible to ensure life cycle. The process of removing this fertile top layer of soil by either natural or man-made process is known as soil erosion. Soil erosion makes landslides a very common phenomenon which is not at all good for us.

    Soil erosion can happen naturally by extreme natural calamities like floods and cyclones which washes of the top layer, also the same happens by the fast-flowing rivers origination from the mountains. Also, one of the major causes of soil erosion is the human act of deforestation, deforestation is the process of cutting down trees as the trees are cut down the roots of the trees no longer bind the soil particles together and thus results in soil erosion. The process of removing grass and making the land barren also joins hand in soil erosion. Processes such as building concrete roads all over results in uprooting the green grass which also helps in binding the soil together. Once the soil is eroded, we get exposed to the unfertile rocky land.

    Its high time for us to take soil erosion on a serious note and start
    working on with measures to come out of this dangerous problem.
