The team at FARM Agronomy would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy year ahead, and to start the year off on a good note we want to share a great list of resources put together by Soils For Life. There are some excellent books, case studies, YouTube clips and more in this list for those looking for some inspiration and fresh perspectives on new ways of thinking and farming.
Who inspires our cropping farmers?
We asked our case study croppers who inspires them in their journey towards a more regenerative approach to cropping. They mentioned farmers, scientists and educators whose insights and questions helped them reflect and adapt their practices.
If you are looking for fresh perspectives to help clarify your own or generate ideas of other ways of cropping, here is a list of potential farmers, scientists and educators recommended by other croppers.
