There is very little that is “new” in agriculture. Most agricultural problems were encountered and solved centuries ago. These proven technologies have been largely forgotten or dismissed as “subsistence agriculture” or various other pejorative tags such as the dreaded “organic farming”. Modern agronomists are constantly “going back to the future” = rediscovering the knowledge of our Great-Great-Great-Great grandfathers. For example, “no-till agriculture” was widely practiced in the Middle Ages. Back then, no-till was done by hand. Today, farmers use high-tech machinery to do the same work.
It takes a whole lot of theories to fill a bushel.
This website is not about positions or labels; our blogs are about real-world results. We don’t rant about chemical vs. biological agriculture. We don’t take sides as in “Monsanto versus The World”. If you want political advice, you have come to the wrong shop. However, if you have a “sick field” or other down-to-earth problem, we can help. Send your questions to the Editor at:
