THERE IS going to be a revolution in farming, and it’s going to happen soon. It has to.
The revolution is called regenerative agriculture, and the winners will be farmers, soil, bees, and everyone who eats.
The only losers will be the pharmaceutical and petrochemical companies that have taken over our food supply. Their wares (expensive GMO seeds, billions of pounds of pesticides, chemical fertilizers) will not be in demand.
What we are finding out is that 70 years of chemical farming has killed our topsoil and washed it into our waterways, along with a toxic load of chemicals, causing massive red tide in Florida and dead zones at the mouths of our rivers.
The promised increases in yield from Roundup Ready GMO seed have turned out to be short-lived, expensive, and unsustainable.
