Basic Crop Programs
Our approach to agriculture focuses on the needs of the plant, rather than the symptoms of illness, and infestations in the plant. We see plant diseases and insects as an indicator of a deeper underlying problem that involves a poor mineral structure and limited nutrient availability. Traditional farming practices have farmers watching their crops for signs of disease, or pest infestations so they can use chemicals to eradicate the pests, or reverse the damages the diseases have caused.
We use a completely different approach, dealing instead with keeping the plant healthy so that it is disease and pest resistant. Evaluating the soil through soil sampling, and the plants through sap analysis, helps farmers to see specifically what and where any mineral depletions may be, so they can make adjustments to the foliar and fertigation applications accordingly. Evaluating the plants, and the soil, will increase productivity across the board.
Instead of focusing on what can be applied to increase the yield of the crop, regenerative agriculture focuses on what plants need to be in an optimum state of health. When plants are given the proper amount of nutrients, and high quality water is used in the application of these nutrients, bigger, healthier, more naturally productive plants will automatically ensue.
