Since one of the underpinnings of Bryan O'Hara's system is highquality compost,
Casey started making compost specifically for use in the no-till system. To explain
their system, Casey and Dan take me over to their compost-making area.

Learn how to use natural no-till systems to increase profitability, efficiency, carbon sequestration, and soil health on your small farm. Farming without tilling has long been a goal of agriculture, yet tilling remains one of the most dominant paradigms; almost everyone does it. But tilling kills beneficial soil life, burns up organic matter, and releases carbon dioxide. If the ground could instead be prepared for planting without tilling, time and energy could be saved, soil organic matter increased, carbon sequestered, and dependence on machinery reduced. The Organic No-Till Farming Revolution is the comprehensive farmer-developed roadmap showing how no-till lowers barriers to starting a small farm, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, increases efficiency and profitability, and promotes soil health. This hands-on manual offers: Why roller-crimper no-till methods don't work for most small farms A decision-making framework for the four no-till methods: occulation, solarization, organic mulches grown in place, and applied to beds Ideas for starting a no-till farm or transitioning a working farm A list of tools, supplies, and sources. This is the only manual of its kind, specifically written for natural and small-scale farmers who wish to expand or explore chemical-free, regenerative farming methods.

Treatment and Use of Sewage Effluent for Irrigation contains the Proceedings of the FAO Regional Seminar on the treatment and use of sewage effluent for irrigation, held in Nicosia, Cyprus on October 1985. The book reviews available information and experience on the treatment and reuse of sewage effluent for increased agricultural production. Papers are presented by international experts on health and agricultural guidelines for effluent quality and on the short-term and long-term effects of effluent reuse on public health, soil fertility and crop productivity. Appropriate sewage treatment systems are considered and sewage sludge treatment and agricultural utilization are discussed. Case studies of sewage effluent treatment and reuse in irrigation in the Near East Region and elsewhere are presented as well. Agriculturists, horticulturists, and civil engineers will find the compendium interesting.

The majority of meat, milk, and eggs consumed in the United States are produced in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO). With concentrated animal operations, in turn comes concentrated manure accumulation, which can pose a threat of contamination of air, soil, and water if improperly managed. Animal Manure: Production, Characteristics, Environmental Concerns, and Management navigates these important environmental concerns while detailing opportunities for environmentally and economically beneficial utilization.
