1. How does traditional agricultural farming work?
Traditional farmers prepare a harvest by applying pesticides to poison all plants in the ground. Synthetic Chemical Fertilisers such as Nitrogen or Phosphorus are then applied to give plants a temporary boost but do little to stimulate soil life, improve soil texture, or improve your soil's long-term fertility. They're highly water-soluble and can leach into waterways. Crops then grow and are harvested for sale through distributors.
