Fixing Farming Forever

This farmer talks about the success of cover crops and no till agriculture to deliver impressive yields with minimal fertilizer and pesticides as demonstrated on his farm in central Ohio. His has great success by focusing on the health of the soil. 

Primary benefits include carbon capture and building up soil - instead of losing soil to erosion.  

I felt like cheering at the end. It is great to see these ideas taking root - literally!
