What are the effects of wind erosion?

Effects of wind erosion:

  • Soil fertility is reduced because of the loss of plant nutrients .
  • Soil capacity to support productive pastures and sustain biodiversity is reduced. 
  • Erosion at the base of bushes and plants can result in the plant being isolated and ground cover being thinned out.
  • The erosion of light-textured topsoil can expose dense clay subsoils. 
  • Sand grains transported by strong winds can damage vegetation in their path by sandblasting. 
  • Air pollution caused by fine particles in suspension can affect people’s health and cause other problems.
