No-Till Farming: Regenerative Agriculture Explained

Soil from a no-till farm.

Plow it up, plant it, fertilize it, reap it.  That's the gist of conventional agriculture, and a growing number of farmers eschew the old practices for even older ones. 

Not tilling the soil is one of the key features of regenerative agriculture, which aims to capture soil in the ground and in plants, rather than releasing it to the atmosphere; it's for the health of the farm and the planet. 

Ray Archuleta is one of many people who spread the gospel of regenerative farming.  He and others work with states on legislation to incentive regenerative practices.  We chat with Ray about the principles, practices, and yields of regenerative agriculture.
