The Future of Regenerative Agriculture
Some people have spent so many years in agriculture, but they produce crops and cattle in a conventional manner. However, the main reason for such way of production is that they did not know there were other better ways. In the recent years the ways have been discovered. The pioneers in agricultural sector initiated the regeneration ways through which farmers could use while raising their cattle and growing of crops. It is the role of human beings to take care of the God given land and animals.
Soil regeneration occurs in several steps for example, minimal soil disturbances by use of mechanical operations. Therefore, use less powerful operations when tilling the land and avoid machineries when feeding the animals. Besides, instead of growing hay crops and using tractors to harvest for the animals, involve growing of grass in the fields and release the cattle to feed on the mature grass or hay. Never allow your soil to be fallow without having some biomass cover in place. Whereby you can either grow vegetation or use other methods to ensure the soil is not bare.
Ensure there are living roots in the soil year after year. The roots feeds bacteria in the soil and ensure your land is ever healthy. Diversification is another innovated form of agriculture whereby you can identify various crops to plant in your farm irrespective of the locality. As you implement the vegetation cover predators and insects will be eliminated from your farm. Therefore, the probability of you having to apply insecticides and pesticides will greatly reduce. Having animals all around your farm maintains the soil and it remains healthy for long. Every species of an animal has got independent grazing patterns which cannot be compared to any other animal. However, every animal has got the various contributions that they bring into your farm.
Organic farming has in the recent be one of the ways which reduces soil pollution and maintains soil fertility. There are various organic products which are available in the market to ensure all farmers perform their operations without any barrier. After using organic method of farming, you are aware that when marketing the produce you will be more advantaged than the fellow farmers who used chemicals in their farm. Farmers are also trying to avoid inorganic farming to avoid and prevent the very many chemicals which penetrate into their food produce.
Definitely people should know that they are caretakers to both animals and crops, hence should manage them accordingly. When the animal is unwell you should take the initiative to give it some antibiotics. Once you nurture the cattle appropriately and lender them with maximum care and attention, you can end up selling them for commercial purposes which means more income generated. Well brought up animals by several farmers could mean plenty of meat during both summer and winter seasons. Farmers should avoid feeding their animals with soy as it reduces production and the rate of animal growth. Also, the rate of soy digestion is quite slow. Soybeans leads to allergic reactions when fed to animals and weakens the immunity system.
