Bennett was a true man for the times and should be considered a hero by all farmers. It is unfortunate that once the big chemical companies got to work on new fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides that many of his thoughts were cast aside.
Bennett is most likely spinning in his grave at the way farmers have abandoned the recycling methods he taught them to use to preserve the soil.
Today it is possible for a new Dust Bowl to occur because the farmer still thinks he has to till the land to bits before he can plant his crops.
In most of the states that were watching the topsoil fly by on the wind, you can still watch small portions of that same thing happening every planting season.
While Bennett was around, there was less total destruction of the farmlands than we see today.
It's like we either didn't learn from the first time around or we choose to ignore the folly of those times.
We love visitors, that's why we live in a secluded cabin deep in the woods. "Buzzard's Roost (Asnikiye Heca) Farm." Promoting permaculture to save our planet. you can call me Dr. Redhawk
