Regenerative Agriculture and SymSoil

Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles, processes and practices that actively enriches soils, biodiversity of the soil microbes, the overall ecosystem and watersheds while effectively increasing soil fertility and agricultural yields. Most practitioners believe that Regenerative Agriculture can improve the resilience of the farmer and rancher economically, as well as the well-being of the surrounding communities. SymSoil Inc., as a microbe farmer and soil blender, may be overly focused on the role of the soil microbes in plant health. Our science staff approaches Regenerative Agriculture from the perspective of training in permaculture, Korean Natural Farming, carbon chemistry and … Continue reading Regenerative Agriculture and SymSoil

Scientific American, Citing FAO Study, Only 60 Years of Farming Left If Soil Degradation Continues

Since you are here, reading about SymSoil™ you probably already know that life as we know it is dependent upon the top six inches of the planet. The key message was alarming: Unless new approaches are adopted, the global amount of arable and productive land per person in 2050 will be only a quarter of the level in 1960, the FAO reported, due to growing populations and soil degradation. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/only-60-years-of-farming-left-if-soil-degradation-continues/ Continue reading Scientific American, Citing FAO Study, Only 60 Years of Farming Left If Soil Degradation Continues
