Soil consultant Barry Fisher knows soil. Fisher – a multi-decade veteran of the NRCS and regional manager of the service’s Soil Health Division – recently started a soil health consultancy following his retirement from government service. At the 2022 National No-Tillage Conference in Louisville, Fisher stepped up to conduct workshops and speak when another guest was unable to attend because of the pandemic.
For this No-Till Farmer podcast, sponsored by Yetter Farm Equipment, lead content editor Brian O’Connor talks with Barry about the tests, making a mess in the prestigious Galt House Hotel, and the future of carbon agriculture. Fisher says the level of carbon sequestration by crop plant root systems could rival levels stored by the Great Plains. Listen in to hear why he’s excited about the future of agriculture.
