Soil is an essential natural resource for life, and if used properly can be the basis for achieving sustainable development. That is why it is important to maintain its productivity in order to strike a balance between food production and rapid population growth.   At present, because of its unsustainable use that causes a series of negative impacts, the soil resource is undergoing processes of accelerated degradation that are translated in low productivity, progressive desertification with serious consequences in the production of foods.
