Gabe Brown - Diversity is the King

Gabe Brown is one of the nation’s tireless proselytizers in favor of innovative
cover cropping. Though he approaches the issues of soil health and crop diversity
from the standpoint of a typical industrial farmer — “production agriculture” —
his farm in Burleigh County, North Dakota, is now almost entirely free of inputs
and applications. As he explains below, in the near future Brown expects to phase
out the herbicide he applies every few years. Brown’s whole career refutes the shibboleths about the necessity of employing expensive inputs and GMOs (which he
also avoids) to maintain big yields. He is one of the few people around these days
who offers production farmers a way out of the darkness. Gabe Brown graciously
told his story while between tasks on his farm in early August.
