Did you know that regenerative agriculture actually increases the land’s ability to absorb water from a hard rain?  Sadly, this is not the case with conventional farming — which often leaves soils dried out and acting more like cement pavement.

Water infiltration –or, how fast water can get into the ground after a hard rain, is a key metric that helps identify if land is healthy.

Regenerative agriculture helps increase the land’s ability to capture the rain — even hard rains . . . which means less need for irrigation and less run off of fertilizer (natural or not) from the land and into rivers.

How?  All those year-round living roots, cover crops […]

This week, our #RegenerativeMinute video provides a snapshot of why NOT tilling the earth is so important to growing nutrient-rich food. Currently, both conventional and organic farmers rely a great deal on tillage to control weeds.  But some farmers have found a way to grow crops while keeping the ground covered and stable — these no-till farmers have been at the forefront of creating regenerative farming — a way of farming that restores natural resources, rather than depleting — or even sustaining them.

There are many other benefits of NoTill of course – we will feature some of those aspects in future episodes.  You can only […]
