The term regenerative agriculture may sound a bit ambiguous at first. But it’s a proven practice, which over time can increase organic contributions to soil health and yield goals.
Operating his family’s 200-year-old farm in Mazeppa, Minn., strip-tiller Rod Sommerfield is a passionate advocate for taking a natural approach to restoring the production capacity of his soils.
But one of the barriers to understanding and embracing regenerative agriculture is recognizing the symptoms of declining soil health.
As Sommefield says, many farmers never realize there’s a problem because they’ve never farmed healthy soils.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast, Rod shares his experience adopting regenerative practices with a long-term goal of producing 300-bushel corn and 100-bushel soybeans with 100% of the nitrogen (N) and most of the other nutrients coming from nature.
