South Western Ontario, Canada
Not many farmers will take you seriously without research and real world in the field proof. You are book smart but real world dumb. What you learn in school doesn't always work out in real world.

There is a saying... those who can, DO...those that can't but think they can TEACH.

There is already a pile of people out here telling farmer that they know how to do our jobs better. Some of them have great ideas and are quickly adopted....others are full of hot air and just siphon money off of farmers.


The best thing for you to do is get back in school do research and testing on your theories. You NEED evidence to back you up.
I can't stress this enough......you need PROOF that this will work

I have customers that are first generation immigrants from Europe. They are great people and love having them around. They used to say our north American way of farming was stupid and the way they did it was soo much better. They asked for help after the second almost complete crop failure. After sitting down with them and explained why we do what we do differently. I also picked up on things from them and have implemented them on my farm.


By the way.....your comment about how it isn't difficult to work the land is ARROGANT and shows how IMMATURE are. No till, cover crops and organic are NOT NEW. Everything has cycles throughout history. Farmers do what makes the most sense in what works for them. Almost every farmer isn't out here strip mining the ground. We are here to make the ground more productive and keep it productive for generations to come!

I wish you the best of luck.
