But a World Bank supported practice known as Conservation Agriculture not only protects the soil, it also saves farmers time and money.

Just a correction. You said the 19th century saw the dust bowl destroying the plains. It was the early 1930s to the 1950s. That's the 20th century. The dust bowl happened in the 20th century. Otherwise, love it.

you can do no till without herbicide. you just need decently low seed cost

Glad to hear that the World Bank is pro Regenerative Agriculture. An increased use of herbicide certainly isn't a sustainable answer though.

It is not regenerative agriculture if it doesn't include multi species cover crops which also almost completely eliminates the need for herbicides, pesticides, and irrigation. Just no till by itself doesn't do much. I live next to a no till field and there's not much difference and they spray the heck out of that field. I wish I lived next to a regen. ag. field.
World Bank is part of the UN and never mention about the Bible principles neither Jehovah God. www.condit-energy.org you see what is farming from God
