      Soil Health Social

      Walk around and talk to other local ag producers as you see equipment demonstrations and hear how an Indiana farmer developed a unique system for building soil health, while pro­ducing profitable cash crops. Rick Clark offers a practical, proven example of how regenera­tive farming methods can transform agriculture. He uses a diverse crop rotation which helps to reduce weeds and insects, while also reducing the need for chemical pesticides. As Rick tran­sitioned to no-till over the past 10 years, he has seen positive impacts. He has reduced the overall fuel needs on his farm by more than 30% and has seen improved soil filtration rates and reduced soil erosion.
