ABSTRACT

The opportunity has been taken to bring the awareness for the revitalization and rehabilitation of agricultural development through the consideration of the role of Soil Science and soil resources. This has been necessary to support industrial food development and create chances, to allow for soil improvements, which are of economic values for the millions of people, globally. Food security, revenue earnings and quality life are obvious in global economic development if the soil resources would be utilized in a sustainable manner. However, decrease in food availability is a problem that may be partly influenced by human development in the aspects of agricultural setback, population growth, environmental contamination and corruption among others. Soil and soil resources offered many sustainable economic opportunities in the transformation and improvements of crop production. Agricultural soils need to be expanded and enlarged through advancement of soil and soil resources advancement. Knowledge of Soil Science would emerge as an alternative in achieving food security in the presence and future through increased food availability, desert/wasteland transformation, sustainable waste management and compost technology. This paper reviewed the roles of Soil Science in achieving sustainable food security with the hope to bring opportunities to develop important research objectives to create chances for future environmental soil management and sustainable food security.
