This French farmer is testing alternative agricultural practices

No synthetic pesticides, no ploughing, livestock grazing… This French farmer believes that a shift in agricultural practices is necessary. These are the techniques he is testing in the south-west of France.

    It's good to see farms getting back to "the 3 sisters" method of crop farming. It worked for the Indigenous peoples for millennia; it can work for all of us now.

    Its good to see a farmer actually remind people that carbon capture can be a functional part of farming technique .

    It's not rocket science. It's good old-fashioned common sense. Big Agri wont like it. They would see the planet destroyed for the sake of boosting their bank balance

    Most so call cash croppers will never change because this type of agriculture requires one thing they are unwilling to do. It's called work. They currently get into their GPS controlled machine and seed with GMO. Then apply fertilizer and roundup. They then get to sit on their asses until harvest. They then get into their massive combines and clean up with in 30 -60 days. Done for another year. Get to go and sit back down on their asses. If they had to farm this way they would let the go to development instead of working the land to make a buck.

    Bravo! 👏 Much more work for the farmer but he's doing it in the only right way - together with Nature! 🌍 The gouvernments and consumers all over the world should support farmers like this one! NOW! - not tomorow!
