Paul Wheaton talks to Neil Bertrando and Owen Hablutzel about keyline plowing. Keyline plowing helps deepen the soil and keep water in the land. They had some things to add after listening to the keyline podcast Paul and Skeeter previously recorded. Owen talks about keyline design being about holistic farming. He then talks about how quickly one can grow topsoil. Neil talks about erosion control and flood irrigation on a hillside. He talks about pattern systems, and utilizing ponds in systems. Another keyline plowing figure is Darren Dougherty. Neil talks about the scale of permanence. Climate is the most permanent factor, and soil the least. They talk about holistic management and soil compaction. Owen talks about overgrazing, and over-resting of plants.
