TOPIC- How healthy soil can mitigate impact of climate change and enhance agriculturalproductivity and food supplyINTRODUCTIONSoil is an essential element in agriculture. It is a basic ingredient which is used ingrowing crops. Also, it plays a crucial role in changing climatic conditions. A healthy soil willlead to healthy environmental conditions. But in recent times it has been observed thatagricultural soil has lost 30- 75% organic matter. It has resulted in lowering their potentialcapacity and fertility. The study focuses on soil carbon sequestration to mitigate climate change.Soil organic matter (SOM) consists of 40-60% of soil organic concentration. In this there arethree basic components that are plant and animal residues, active SOM and stable SOM. In SOCthere are several challenges which is faced. It makes it difficult for farmers to use their resourcesin effective manner. It has been identified that rate of SOC sequestration varies and depends onclimate, soil type, etc.Significance of topic –The health of soil depends on its functionality and quality. It containsmany attributes which is composed of chemical, biological, physical and ecological elements.There has been a positive impact on agronomic productivity due to increase in SOC size and1
