If Kirk Brock had to go back to conventional farming, he says he would “just quit and go do something else. ”
He sees traditional conventional tillage farming systems as more of a “hope and prayer” than as a good management system. With his soil health-building no-till and cover crop system, Mr. Brock doesn’t have to worry as much about timely rainfall events. And if intense rainfall occurs, he knows he can hold that water on his hillsides and allow it to percolate into the soil profile for his crops to use later.
