Ray Roettger: Our Health and Our Wealth Start in the Soil MP3
Ray Roettger, an Indiana-based soil and crop consultant, will explain specific eco-farming practices that will help you grow healthy crops and healthy bottom lines year in and year out. (And he will tell you what not to do, too!)
Ray has been around eco-farming for more than 30 years. He’s heard every new theory and he’s seen plenty of “magic bullets” misfire. He’s also learned from some of the eco-farming masters, and trained many of his contemporaries. Ray will share some incredible biological farming success stories, and tell you how to repeat them on your own operation: Luscious sweet corn grown with no added nitrogen; several dairy farmers reporting drastic improvements in herd health, production, and reproduction; organic corn out-yielding conventional corn; and hoophouse tomatoes raking in huge quality premiums with fertilizer costs lower than the packaging costs. As excited as Ray is about these success stories, he‘s even more excited about the future! Why? Because there are so many opportunities to make huge profits in eco-farming, even as conventional agriculture is mired in low commodity prices and high costs of production. And those opportunities start with creating a healthy soil that will grow healthy plants, livestock, and people. And Ray knows soil.
