"Neutral point of view" is one of Wikipedia's three core content policies. The other two are "Verifiability" and "No original research". These three core policies jointly determine the type and quality of material that is acceptable in Wikipedia articles. Because these policies work in harmony, they should not be interpreted in isolation from one another, and editors should try to familiarize themselves with all three. The principles upon which this policy is based cannot be superseded by other policies or guidelines, or by editor consensus.
I guess the history was a bit long and wandered into the subject of agriculture a bit. It is difficult to talk about soil without straying into that subject. Not sure the subsection on the History... is necessary unless you intend to add another about the mechanical properties of soil or some such thing. There is more to do there.
