Rick Clark, 5th generation farmer from Williamsport, Indiana, is taking a systematic approach to regenerative farming. Improving soil health by supporting the microbial biome has allowed Rick to remove tillage and take away the need for applying lime, phosphorus, and potassium. He is working toward achieving a balance within the soil, which encourages his crops to thrive. Rick discusses the practice of “farming green,” or establishing a successful cover crop in the fall in order to build a successful cash crop the following season.
