92: Regenerative Agriculture

David R. Montgomery defines regenerative agriculture as leaving the land better off and more fertile as a consequence of cultivation. Montgomery has been a featured presenter at the Sustainable Ag Expo, listen below to hear his research he has defined three principles to build soil fertility; minimal disturbance, cover cropping, and growing a diversity of crops. David studied geology at Stanford University before earning his Ph.D. in geomorphology at UC Berkeley. Today he teaches at the University of Washington where he studies the evolution of topography and how geological processes shape landscapes and influence ecological systems.

In this research, he has defined three principals to build soil fertility; minimal disturbance, cover cropping, and growing a diversity of crops. David has studied the success of these principals in agricultural systems around the world, from subsistence farmers to large commodity crops in North America. Healthy soils support more crop growth, have less erosion, and even look and smell healthier.

The author of three books, David is a wealth of information on how soil life impacts plant productivity. Shopping for a home security system can be a headache.
