Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) researchers proposed the use of bioindicators to check the physical, chemical, climatic, biological and functional characteristics of soil in order to strengthen the agricultural and livestock systems.

The specialists from the UAEM Agricultural, Livestock and Rural Sciences Institute (ICAR), Belén Archundia Velarde, Ernesto Sánchez and Carlos Manuel Arriaga Jordán, as well as Alma Velázquez Rodríguez from the UAEM Science Department, said that earthworms are used as indicators of the environment’s quality, as detectors of pollution and other environmental changes.

In order to help the development of milk production, the researchers proposed to use earthworms with the goal of analyzing soil quality, because they represent one of the most useful bioindicators, especially on soil affected by natural resource depletion, as in the case of regions with excessive grazing.

Earthworms allow for the evaluation of the agricultural and livestock impact on the environment, said the UAEM researchers. The experts added that this proposal is related to sustainable agriculture and environment.
