Everything begins and ends with the soil, and of the 3 things that create all life, sun, rain and soil, it is the only one we can influence. Fertility is fundamental to the health and nutrition of our crops and the people that eat them. Plants grown in healthy soil don’t need our chemical sprays to keep them alive. If they did, they wouldn’t exist. Thus the agro-chemical industry spends billions lobbying to obscure the simple fact that in a world of restored soil they would be obsolete.
