This is a show for professional growers and agronomists who want to learn about the science and principles of regenerative agriculture systems to increase quality, yield, and profitability.
Rebuilding Rural Economies with Ancient Grain and Regenerative Practices with Bob Quinn
John sits down with Bob Quinn, a Montana-based expert in organic farming practices & founder of the Montana-based Kamut International, an organization devoted to high quality Khorasan wheat and sustainable agricultural practices.
Facilitating Large Scale Transitions to Regenerative Agriculture with Terry McCosker
John interviews Dr. Terry McCosker, Australia’s acclaimed Regenerative Ag thought leader who has worked with about 10,000 Australian farmers over the years, discussing everything from pasture ecology to proper farm succession strategies.
In Defense of Biological Systems with Robert Linderman
John interviews plant pathology veteran & agricultural visionary, Dr. Robert Linderman, discussing the benefits of mycorrhizal fungi and other bio-control agents that protect crops from soil borne pathogens.
Building Soil While Cash Cropping with Loran Steinlage
John Kempf interviews Loran Steinlage to discuss his experiences with relay cropping, 60-inch corn, interseeding, controlled traffic farming, as well as reducing soil compaction and improving water infiltration.
The Fallacy of Mainstream Potassium and Nitrogen Fertilization with Richard Mulvaney
John Kempf interviews Dr. Richard Mulvaney to discuss how nitrogen applications can be a waste of money, the soil test growers use to understand nitrogen, and the “potassium paradox” that describes why applying potash can be detrimental to potassium availability.
Microbial Communities for Carbon Sequestration with David Johnson
John interviews Dr. David Johnson to discuss rapid carbon sequestration, the ideal fungal to bacterial ratio for healthy soils, how to obtain those communities while saving money, and the resilience of fungally dominant systems.
