Diverse crop rotations – those with a greater variety of crops over time – have been recently promoted as a means to conserve or increase of soil organic carbon, a key indicator of soil health. But taking a critical view of this claim, is it supported by science?
To till or not to till, if only there was an easy answer! Thankfully, a long-term research trial at the Ontario Crops Research Centre-Ridgetown can give us a place to start.
Every growing season, farmers apply mineral fertilizers on their fields to improve soil fertility and crop health. Some locally mined minerals, such as wollastonite, can naturally react with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas.
