Agriculture

Agriculture can provide an abundant supply of food, economic resiliency for local economies and financial success for farmers and peasants, all without exploiting people or nature.

Minnesota's continuous living groundcover

Of Minnesota’s 55.6 million acres, 27 million acres are taken up by farmland. Currently, crop production is dominated by summer annuals like corn and soybeans, which need to be replanted each year and grow only in the summer. The consequence of this type of cropping is that for most of the year, no active roots exist in the soil to filter water, reduce runoff, or prevent erosion.
