There are various causes of soil pollution including the leakage of gas, chemicals and petrol during the transportation of tanks carrying gas, chemicals and petrol. Indiscriminate use of irrigation can also increase soil pollution. Imbalance use of fertilizers and poor drainage cause salinity which also causes soil pollution. Use of chemicals like pesticides and insecticides also cause soil pollution. Moreover, land fills and hazardous waste can also cause soil pollution.

Check out this website www.tutorvista.com and everything about soil pollution is there and the disadvantages of soil pollution is so obvious that there is no particular heading under which it could come.... The very term "soil pollution" is a disadvantage so its quite difficult to pick up a certain disadvantage..

Hope this helps you at least a little bit.. All the best

I would consider the human race and its habits to be the main cause of the soil pollution
