    Inhaltsangabe

    The problem of agriculture is as old as civilization. Throughout history, great societies that abused their land withered into poverty or disappeared entirely. Now we risk repeating this ancient story on a global scale due to ongoing soil degradation, a changing climate, and a rising population. But there is reason for hope. David R. Montgomery introduces us to farmers around the world at the heart of a brewing soil health revolution that could bring humanity's ailing soil back to life remarkably fast.

    Growing a Revolution draws on visits to farms in the industrialized world and developing world to show that a new combination of farming practices can deliver innovative, cost-effective solutions to problems farmers face today. Montgomery explores why practices based on the principles of conservation agriculture help restore soil health and fertility. In addition, he discusses how these practices translate into farms that use less water, generate less pollution, and lower carbon emissions. Combining ancient wisdom with modern science, Growing a Revolution lays out a solid case for an inspiring vision where agriculture becomes the solution to environmental problems.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Montgomery's fascinating exposé of how our food is grown will convince readers that soil health should not remain an under-the-radar issue and that we all benefit from embracing a new philosophy of farming." ( Kirkus)

    Restoration agriculture

    Best introduction, I know about restoration agriculture & regenerative agriculture. Montgomery, who is actually geomorphologist, describes a variety of examples & gives the scientific background. The plough is as fatal for soil health as agrochemicals & if the two together are the maximum threat, what can we do instead? The author gives insight into a variety of approaches.

    One special thing about the audio book: every single word is clearly & vividly spoken, but the special way of speaking, the speaking technique is less optimate for scientific data. While descriptions become more vivid this way, the meaning of data get lost.

    Important but repetitive

    Great topic, performed well, but would have benefited from some serious editing to reduce the annoying amount of repetition in the material.
