Conservation Agriculture (CA) uses three key principles:
    • Minimal soil disturbance which is essential to maintaining minerals within the soil, and preventing erosion and water loss.
    • Retain organic surface cover allowing for the growth of organisms within the soil that will act as fertilizer with the surface organic matter to prevent erosion, cut down on weed competition, and hold soil moisture content.
    • Rotate crops with more than 2 crop species to break the insect and weed cycle and keep soil healthy.
    Conservation agriculture:
    • Requires less labor
    • Promotes timely planting
    • Improves soil health
    • Is adaptable to all farm sizes
    • Saves time
    • Saves money
    • Saves water
