VERY magazine are back with shorter versions of their series of films looking at flood and drought. They write: 5 minute short short version: Soil carbon is essential to retain water on our fields. Loss of soil carbon due to chemical farming causes flooding and drought as well as a further loss of soil. Adding insult to injury the resulting silting up of the rivers increases flooding – and drought. Re-implementing natural traditional farming techniques is urgently called for to secure water resources and soil fertility, help mitigate and prevent ever increasing floods and droughts.
