Explain how soil gets affected by the continuous plantation of crops in a field.

Answer:
Continuous plantation of crops in a field makes the soil poor in certain nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, etc. Plants require nutrients for their proper growth and functioning. When a farmer continues to grow’ crops one after the other, then all nutrients available in the soil reduce and the crop yield decreases automatically.
