Our soil is our life giver. As we enter the monsoon season, soil erosion becomes a matter of grave worry for all, especially for people and livestock near hilly areas and river banks. If there is a loss in the fertile top soil, the productive capacity of the land gets compromised which in turn poses a huge risk to our food security. Some of the human-induced factors of soil erosion are felling of trees with deep roots to clear space for construction, deforestation, loss of vegetation, rapid urbanisation, etc.

Even though soil erosion is a natural phenomenon, we can reduce its impact by planting more trees and bushes which are good in holding the soil together, planting grass and creepers in and around farmlands and riverbanks, spreading mulch on bare grounds, building embankments, etc.

Share with MyGov Assam your take on how soil erosion can be minimised by plantation of indigenous trees along the riverbanks and hilly areas. You may also share any success story in this regard along with relevant photographs/videos.

पेड़ पौधे मिट्टी का कटाव कम करने में सहायक है। इसकी जड़ें मिट्टी को बांध कर रखती है।

Saplings of Peepal, Bel and Vatavriksha need to planted beside the water bodies, river banks so as to make the soil be held tight alongwith the deep roots of the future full-bloom trees and in turn SAVE the SOIL being destroyed and washed out due to the heavy current of the flood water in no time. People should take self-initiative to go for voluntary service to our Mother Earth and save the precious land area from any undesired destruction. Indeed, we can do it for our environment.

धरती हमारी माता है, इनसे सच्चा नाता है।
हमको पेड़ लगाना है, जीवन स्वर्ग बनाना है।

More and more barren land should be made a green land, especially beside rivers,e.g., in the district Dhemaji, so as to save the areas from soil erosion owing to sudden floods and loss of human life, and that of livestock, too! Along with that home and farmland. The Ministry of Forest and Environment need to act on such development plans in the long run.
