Healthy Soils, Healthy Crops

In this video we discuss soil health in general. We first start (1:10) with why conventional tillage was used and what soil disturbance does in terms of destroying soil health and what the other costs of conventional tillage. We end off discussing some of the practical benefits of soil health (3:24).
