Agriculture faces many stresses today. Kris Nichols says fresh water, nutrients and energy resources are declining, while a growing population is requiring production to double in the near future. That means no-tillers will need to find ways to improve economic and environmental sustainability of their agroecosystems.
Soil biology holds the key. The soil microbiologist from Mandan, N.D., explains how no-tillers need to focus on increased organic matter, improved water infiltration and water-holding capacity, and better nutrient cycling to reduce runoff, leaching and compaction. Nichols shares practices no-tillers need to adopt to provide the food and habitat for a diverse array of soil organisms to flourish.
