A balanced system functions infinitely without intervention. Most farms and ranches are not properly balanced but can be managed to improve ecosystem functions. Learn how to manage the above and below ground elements of your ecosystems to enhance soil health and increase profits.
Join John Kempf for the above ground half of the day and Michael Phillips for the below ground half of the day to truly advance your knowledge of plant biology, plant nutrient cyles, plant-fungal interactions, soil biological process benefitting crops and much more.
In this workshop, John will describe the principles and the science of regenerative farming ecosystems that harness much more of the energy coming into the system, and produce Olympic athlete level performance.
We already have the knowledge and information needed to increase soil and crop performance to several times higher than the current system. We simply need to implement what is already known.
We can develop regenerative agriculture ecosystems in which soil health is quickly regenerated, crop yields and quality constantly improve, pest pressure becomes less of a challenge and crops are much more resilient to climate extremes. When a truly regenerative ecosystem is functioning well, the need for external inputs becomes less and less.
A vibrant biology is every farmer’s dream team, and our most fundamental job as captain (a bold assumption, indeed!) is simply not to screw up our team. Rousing every grower to think deeper begins with an appreciation for how soil biology abets healthy plant metabolism.
Building regenerative soil is quite frankly a fungal act. Ultimately, effective stewardship of the land involves keeping the organic matter flowing, as it’s only through actively recirculating carbon that we honor fungal ways and plant wisdom. Tomorrow can be redeemed by honoring this fundamental earth pact.
Michael Phillips shares how no-till farming lies at the heart of changing American agriculture for the better in this advanced soil health symposium.
