I'm trying to find a video I saw recently on youtube, there was a man standing at the edge of a field giving a live demonstration about two different kinds of soil. He had two soil samples, and he said that they were collected a short distance apart from each other, perhaps 10 feet (or yards or meters) or so, but one sample was from an organic farm, and the other was from a traditional, industrial agriculture farm across the property line. He poured water into each sample and made observations about how likely the water was to run off, seep through, and so on. I can't find it, and have tried numerous keyword combinations to no avail.

Perhaps someone knows which video I mean?

Otherwise, if anyone finds it, please post it here, it was QUITE fascinating, a true eye-opener for me.

Where there's a will....

turns out I WAS signed into YouTube at the time.

I had to go back about 8 months, (and wow, have I watched a lot since then!) but I found it.

Quite interesting, worth taking a look:

So what do we do if youtube goes down? Are there back-ups?


Very interesting video on till versus no-till. Water run-off versus absorption.

Basically the future of farming versus the "petroleum-magic" we've all lived by for years.

Pick up a spade and try to turn the soil: it's incredibly hard work!
Just imagine the energy which a tractor uses plowing a field!
And for what! - short-term gain, and short-term gain is something which is just about all used up - right about now folks. Sorry to say.
