What would happen if there was no soil. Why would this happen?
Asked in Science
Why does the soil usually become useless for growing crops after only a few years?
With proper soil management this should not happen. It usually occurs if the same crop is grown in the same place year after year and no material is returned to the soil. This depletes the organic matter (humus) in the soil, depriving the crops of nutrients. Crop rotation and the application of fertilizers can avoid this.

Asked in Biology
Decomposers are soil organisms that?
decomposers are organisms in soil that decompose the organic matter in dead and decaying parts of plants and animals into oganic matter and carbon dioxide. thus the nutrients are returned back to the soil and help in plant growth. they play an important part in recycling of nutrients. example fungi and bacteria

Asked in Soil
What components of soil on earth would not be in the Moons soil?
What would happen if you did not have a food chain?
Everything would have to be a producer (autotroph) because nothing could eat anything else. Also nothing would be broken down because there are no decomposers so when organisms died they would just pile up on land. The nutrients would never get returned to the soil and the soil would a. be burried so deep it would be difficult to access and b. not have the nutrients needed to survive.
