Diversity is King

Soil is the foundation of our food system but it is continually being degraded. Not just in developed nations, but even more so in less developed nations. Access to good-quality crop residues for production purposes remains one of the most significant challenges for farmers around the world.

Farmers like Gabe Brown know that diversity is the key to success. It’s all about achieving better soil health and quality while improving yields.

He grows a combination of crops designed to build up his soils’ health and fertility. In the process, he has produced consistent large yields while lowering his costs. He achieves this success through the use of cover crops, which are grown without interruption so they can maximize their service to the soil…

Key Takeaways:

  • Rotating crops to build soil fertility makes farming sustainable for the long term

     

  • Diversified crop rotations are essential for rebuilding soil organic matter, increasing water infiltration, reducing soil compaction, and improving drainage, while also protecting the soil surface against wind and water erosion.
