We are inspired by the story of how Gabe Brown, a rancher in North Dakota, has managed with careful use of some basic techniques to more than triple the organic content and fertility of his soil.
Listen as he lays out for us how he did it step by step, even while struggling with natural disasters that threatened the survival of his farm. His principal tools:
* A constantly shifting diverse mix of cover crops
* Rotational grazing
* Careful sequencing of land use
* Frequent testing for organic matter and moisture retention
