Re: Spread the News, the Obi Wan Kanobi of soil health
In all actuality, David is just part of the movement, spawned by Ray Archuletta(NRCS). Ray is and advocate for treating the soil as a living, breathing thing, that must be monitored. It goes alot deeper than just tillage, and covercrops and crop rotations. Basically if you treat the soil right, and not just use it as a medium to grow your crops, you can have a huge impact on costs and profits. Its not something the big ag companies like to hear, as he is basically flying in the face of the GMO's, and hybrids that are on the market today. He's really starting to turn some heads across the country. If you ever get the chance to see Ray speak, I highly suggest it. He spend sometime in SE PA this summer. Should have seen the look in the eyes of the amish and he told them about not abusing the ground!!!
