Les sols

Tout dépend du sol! Au fil du temps, une grande partie des précieuses terres arables ont disparu dans les fossés et les cours d’eau. Aujourd’hui, les agriculteurs travaillent dur pour améliorer les sols.

Soil is alive!

One teaspoon of healthy soil contains more microorganisms than there are people on earth.

Building better soil

 Farmers depend on healthy soil to grow healthy food and implement different management practices to improve their soil health. One of the most important soil stewardship practices is conservation tillage. Conservation tillage minimizes soil disturbance by seeding right into standing stubble (plant residue from the previous crop).
