Due to agricultural processes including higher volume tillage and the use of pesticides and fertilizers—the health of our soil is decreasing at an alarming rate, and without healthy soil, we face more pollution and less cultivation.
The Land Institute seeks to develop perennial crop agriculture that will save soil from being lost, while promoting a community life at once prosperous and enduring. Through perennial grains and intercropping systems including Kernza, Sorghum, Silphium, Perennial Wheat, Legumes, the Global Inventory Project, and ecological succession—The Land Institute is providing:
- Soil protection and formation
- Maximizing soil organic matter
- Resistance to pathogens and insects
- Regulated nutrient losses
- Weed suppression
- High-functioning soil microbiome
- Reduced fossil fuel dependence
- Carbon and nutrient retention
