As far as I can trace back, my ancestors all used to provide people with food through farming. However, as traditional agriculture requires clear land and is generally monoculture, I am concerned about desertification due to the removal of deeply rooted plants and nutrient depletion in the soil as a consequence of monoculture. This is a serious problem to me as my family has ancestrally depended on the land. If the once fertile soils disappeared, then my family and many other families may ultimately be deprived of the food that used to be available in abundance. To circumvent such a grim future, action must be taken. Perhaps we could inform people on how the land may transform after clearing away the native foliage. They could incorporate endemic flora back into the farmland to help preserve the initial composition of the soil and reduce the risk of desertification.
