Role of Soil Science: An Answer to Sustainable Crop Production for Economic Development in Sub-Saharan Africa

S. Usman and A.M. Kundiri

Abstract:
The Sub-Saharan Africa needs urgent sustainable crop production for economic development. Poverty and hunger, soil degradation and decline soil quality are increasingly alarming in the region. Soil science is the mainstay of the economic development for the Sub-Saharan African region. Soil science provides support to crop production, raw materials to million industries, water quality for biota, animal and human survival, recycling of abundant dead materials, landscaping for engineering and research purposes, foreign exchange for national income and accommodation for animal and human interactions. This study outlined and discussed these functional services of soil science as an answer to sustainability and renewability of crop production for economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
