    Gracias a Dios....... we are finally beginning to use some common sense in looking at how carbon can be stored in the soil.

    Cows are not exactly an enemy..... as long as they are moved around some.

    Grass pastures sequestering carbon has been well known for decades inspite of what the latest anti-animal agriculture activists say. Tilling the soil to produce plant based diets emits far more carbon emissions than meat animals.

    The current trend for sod busters is a no till sowing. I have been doing the same for the last seven years...

    How do you control weeds and unwanted vegetation on no-till or reduced till acres? Chemicals?

    I pull the weeds or use a cultivator.

    A cultivator tills the soil. Pulling the weeds is a viable option if one is only growing for their own needs.
