गाय & गौचर भूमि (Grass land patches) play critical role in stabilizing local climate.

But since we as a society see higher economic value in everything, we consider this गौचर भूमि useless and so we give them to industries. And cows for slaughter. Develop new cities on गौचर भूमि. And cry for cattle menace on roads! How pathetic!

=====================
There’s more to an ecosystem than the visible plants and animals. The soil underneath is alive with vital microbes. They make sure nutrients from dead plant and animal material are broken down and made useable by other plants. This completes the process of nutrient cycling and carbon storage.

Climate change alters microbial activities.

Only way to protect soil fertility is to allow cows to graze it.

Mark my words : In future, 10 years from now, those farmers who have cows, will only survive. And there will be premium charge to allow cows to graze personal lands. As there will be very less cows against the desert land 🙁

It is my firm belief that only she can protect us locally against global catastrophic climate changes. Oasis in global deserts.

Will grassland soil weather a change?

Grassland soil microbe communities show seasonal responses, deserve more research

There’s more to an ecosystem than the visible plants and animals. The soil underneath is alive with vital microbes. They make sure nutrients from dead plant and animal material are broken down and made useable by other plants. This completes the process of nutrient cycling and carbon storage.

Scientists are learning more about how important these microbes are. But how do changes in temperature and precipitation levels affect microbes? And will that affect carbon storage?

“These pasture systems are pretty understudied in terms of how climate change will affect them, which is not good because these areas rely so heavily on agriculture,” says Lindsey Slaughter of the University of Kentucky. “While this work was part of a longer project studying plant communities, I was able to study soil microbial communities over one year because they are such an important part of these ecosystems.”
