Brendon Rockey: Biotic Farming Applications at Scale USB/CD
Building off of Session One: Biotic Farming Fundamentals, Brendon Rockey will bridge the gap between theory and practice. He will show how he successfully integrates biological diversity into his 500-acre, irrigated farming operation, confirming how cover crop rotations, livestock grazing, companion plants and beneficial insect populations come together to make a biotic farming system work. He will touch on how biotic farming affects his economics in regards to inputs and yields as well as the local and national food and farm system.
Brendon Rockey is a third-generation farmer in Center, Colorado. On Rockey Farms, he raises specialty potatoes and quinoa among fields of green manure, all cultivated in a living environment, including companion crops, animals, cover crops and flowers replace synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides.
