Africa's soils are being depleted of nutrients ||
Africa's farmland is rapidly becoming barren and incapable of sustaining the continent's already hungry population, according to a report.
The report shows that more than 80% of the farmland in Sub-Saharan Africa is plagued by severe degradation.
This is a major cause of poverty and hunger in sub-Saharan Africa, where one in three people is undernourished.
Population growth is leading to the overexploitation of farmland, depleting soil of nutrients, the report says.
Farmers' inability to afford fertiliser is a major contributing factor, it adds. Deforestation, use of marginal lands, and poor agricultural practices also play a role.
The International Center for Soil Fertility and Agricultural Development (IFDC) report tracks soil health on the continent from 1980 to 2004.
