Soil is a valuable natural resource because it gives life to this planet. Since food is one of the basic needs for survival, fertile soil provides good crops for human consumption, stores water and filters it for the growth of vegetation and crops. Humans also use soil to build houses and towns, store waste, get fuel and energy for daily needs, and make clothing and extract water for daily consumption and growth of various industries. The progress of a country depends on soil, and it is also the home to various ecosystems which maintains the ecological balance of the world. It helps regulate the overall temperature and climate by the growth of trees and vegetation and maintains biodiversity.
