Monoculture Farming and the Sabbatical Year
I was reading articles the other day and came across an article from Natural News called “Almost everyone is deficient and you can die without it: Potassium”
The first line of the article says:
“Due to the poor monoculture farming practices of Big Ag, most of the topsoil for plant based foods has been depleted of key minerals over the past 100 years.”
I had no idea what “monoculture farming” was so I looked it up!
“Monoculture is the agricultural practice of producing or growing a single crop or plant species over a wide area and for a large number of consecutive years.”
Notice how unhealthy the soil looks!
The first thing that popped into my head was, “You know, I bet that is why God commanded to let the land have a Sabbath every seven years!”
