Description


For centuries agricultural practices have eroded the soil farming depends on, stripping it of organic matter vital to its productivity, and now threatening disaster for the world's growing population. In Growing a Revolution, geologist David R. Montgomery travels the world, meeting farmers at the forefront of an agricultural movement to restore soil health. From Kansas to Ghana, he sees why adopting the three tenets of conservation agriculture--ditching the plow, planting cover crops, and growing a diversity of crops--is the solution. For when farmers restore fertility to the land it helps feed the world, cool the planet, reduce pollution, and return profitability to family farms.

"In his reader-friendly style, Montgomery describes the environmental crossroads at which we stand, and shows us not only the devastation, but the potential solution, that exists right beneath our feet."-- Hope Jahren, author of Lab Girl
