Land rehabilitation difficulty

Other Names:
Difficult land restoration

Reviving soil takes years. There are two critical issues - pollution and loss of fertile top soil.  Neither issue can be resolved overnight via natural restoration. Remedial actions can involve building banks to tackle soil erosion, clearing wild vegetation, digging in manure and regular soil testing.
