Klaas Martens: Reinventing Your Farm: Building a Better Farming System

Klaas Martens


An observant farmer can learn a lot from observing the soil. Longtime large-scale organic farmer Klaas Martens will explain what he looks for in terms of soil health indicators on his farm and how to interpret these signs. Looking at indicator plants, weed varieties present, and other indicators and tying those observations to soil tests reveals much about the soil. Learn how to tie together knowledge from classic books, field observations, and modern science to gain a better understanding of soil health.
