"I saw the results of the very very long term tillage versus no till study out in western kansas. Been going on for. I don't know twenty years something like that. They saw the results a measured all these different parameters in the long term. No till without producing the tillage field to one arid environment you would expect that no till would easily rise to the top. A mass y y is that in all well holds more moisture. Will they measured the water holding capacity of each soa the ability of the soil. The whole you know the grams of water per kilogram of soil the took a core of age and put it in the lab measured to water holding capacity and they were virtually identical will. Wait a minute interest you know. I thought the ability of soil the hold water would improve with no no till did but it was extremely slight. You say so. Where's all the extra water coming from increased root depth because of that poor space you get this increase in pore space in soil structure and the plant roots could just go that much deeper in when they measured water extraction by foot. That's where the extra yield was being made greater rooting depth because of the greater prosekey on better gas exchange in the soil. I think this is a really important point. I have fresh in my mind. Of course that. Harriet mela has put together for kind harvest. Which i've just been reviewing again this last week. In just startlingly fresh perspective a completely different perspective than we often hear even the regenerative agriculture space. And she made the point that when you.

Mela who. I am absolutely delighted to have here an to introduce to all of you. Harry is one of those rare individuals who is very widely read in all the different fringe. Scientists that connects to agronomy and agriculture and was able to connect the dots in a really beautiful way. I've known harriet for a number of years. And i've really enjoyed the conversation that we have had talking about all the different science areas. So today is going to be an awesome conversation. Hang onto your hats. Probably going to hear about twenty things that you've never heard about before and you will enjoy every minute of it. So harry thank you for being here. Can you tell us a little bit about your story. And the context of your growing experiences in some of the things that you're fascinated by that you're working on. I don thanks for having me on the podcast. So i think if i try to find the one major lion of on my agronomical experiences taste simply tastes. I have been with eighteen. I've spent a year in austria roofing. And that's where. I have been on the vegetable farm. Or deadly fredericks brisbane. The brisbane and i have come in contact with fantastic vegetables taste and so afterwards when i got back home some years paths and started to put together a self sufficient garden. Nothing tasted well at all. And the beans were stringy and everything. Nothing worked basically. And i had grown up with a garden crazy mother on a sandy soil and here was on a very silty compacted soil and just nothing worked. Nothing and i i fought. It's a question of modern varieties. So this is when i went on the quest for hair looms an after having fiddled around with him for some years i realized carries another part to the story. And this is how i got into culture methods and eventually i stumbled over the materials of must've joel. The korean natural farming and i have picked up at that time already corporation with mock christensen in new zealand about helen tomatoes which were screened for the highest values off this orange sector assist lycopene which is absorbed easier in the intestinal tract and apparently powerful metabolite against cancer they can with prostate cancer at that time and we were looking at tremendous variations in the content of this metabolite in the tomatoes..
