The negative effects of erosion are valuable fertile top soil is washed or blown away leading to a situation where earth is no longer held together and isuseless for growing plants or retaining water in the ground. This eventually makes land useless for farming and cattle and can even lead to the formation of desert. Also, desertification, loss of habitat and ecological disaster are negative effects of erosion.
