Subject: RE: When do farmers go back to growing food?

Northeast Indiana
All depends on what nutrition you are talking about. Starch and carbohydrates, grains are at higher levels than ever. Vitamins and minerals, yes grains are lower per pound on this metric. It's not because of "dead soil" though. It's because yields are higher than ever. When yields increase its mostly due to extra starch and carbohydrates. If you were growing lower yields of small shriveled up grains, the vitamin and mineral content per pound would be higher. It has nothing to do with your so called "dead soil". You choose to use this term to justify your choices on your farm, and to make yourself feel better at the expense of your neighbor.
