Future of Agriculture – Stories from the Soil Finale: Why I Love Working in Agriculture

The concept of Soil Health deals with making sure the land where our farms stand will remain the same for the next generation. This was the goal of my journey in bringing the awareness of soil health to the world, and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Jim Loar of Cool Planet.

This special episode will be the culmination of all the farms I visited and the amazing farmers I met along the way. I share where I draw my passion for agriculture and being immersed in this scientifically-driven industry. I discuss the different aspects of agriculture and the farmers who best represented them. I explain how much technology is driving the recent agricultural innovations. I also describe the people behind the farms I went to and how they’re contributing to soil health and sustainability.

“Agriculture exists to solve our most complex problems to meet our most basic needs.”

This Week on The Future of Agriculture Podcast:

  • Round-up of the Stories from the Soil visits and episodes.
  • Where my love for agriculture came from.
  • The farmers I met along the way and why they’re awesome.
  • How data and technology have affected the way farmers manage and operate farms today.
  • How innovation is driving the growth of the agriculture industry.
  • The six aspects of agriculture and what they mean from a global perspective.

Key Takeaways:

  • There is an element in agriculture of collaboration. Be willing to help out your neighbor.
  • If you’re not doing what’s right for the soil, it’s going to be very difficult to sustain it for the next generation.
