“We’re able to track the genetic sequence of an organism and trace it through the soil. I think that’s amazing. Doing something like that was just a dream 15 years ago, but today it’s a reality. There is so much to be excited about. We’re at the start of a new age.”— Larry Reichenberger, from the essay “Building Better Soils” in The Furrow (John Deere, February 2013). Excerpt from the library of Fred Kirschenmann, author of “Cultivating an Ecological Conscience,” distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and president of Kirschenmann Family Farms.
