Acres U.S.A Reviews Sowing Seeds in the Desert

“Whether the masters of American agriculture will perceive the road to hell broiling in front of them and embark on a transformation remains to be seen. It is possible, even probable, that radical economies of water use will keep intensive irrigation agriculture going for a number of years in California’s Central Valley and on the High Plains. When real changes are made, however, the late Masanobu Fukuoka will play a part even if his name is never invoked and his books are nowhere to be seen.”

So says Chris Walters in his review of Fukuoka’s last work, Sowing Seeds in the Desert [1], in August’s issue of Acres U.S.A: The Voice of Eco-Agriculture [2].
