NRCS soil scientist Ray Archuleta believes promoting healthy no-till soils requires a lot more than just ceasing tillage operations. It means following the lead of nature.


Download this FREE 19-page eGuide to learn:

  • Why Archuleta advises farmers to randomly select aggregates, or clods, from a field or fields and let them air dry, or microwave them until all the moisture is gone. When the aggregates are dry, drop them into a jar of water for each sample
  • What the primary reason for organic glue degradation is
  • Why Cover-crop residue helps regulate temperature and moisture in the soil
  • And much, much more
