“If you emulate nature, work with it, and understand its synergies, you’ll save money and reduce your inputs…” – Ray Archuleta
Soil health and regenerative agriculture are hot topics not just in farming communities but in the world at large, and for good reason. Producers and citizens alike are discovering the complex web of interactions taking place between the soil, plants, and people.
In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Martin Industries, we chat with soil health experts Ray Archuleta, Gabe Brown and Russell Hedrick at a Soil Health Academy training seminar held in Watertown, Wis. They talk about how regenerative agriculture is different from traditional conservation farming techniques, how it can help farmers make more money and reduce inputs, why they like the Haney soil test and much more!
P.S. There’s lots more great no-till stories and history in Frank Lessiter’s new book, From Maverick to Mainstream: A History of No-Till Farming. Check it out here.
