The Answer for a Lot of Farmers is Reduce their Inputs

Says Alan Broughton:

“The answer for a lot of farmers is reduce their inputs as much as they can.

The more chemical you use in agriculture, the more you need to use.

This is the figure there for nitrate use. Nitrate is one of the main fertilizers that farmers use.
What nitrate does, it damages the soil.

It damages the soil structure and the soil biology, and that means you’ve got to have more and more on all the time in order to get the same results.

A lot of farmers tell me super phosphate doesn’t work anymore.”
