Trimming is much more than cutting grasses and bushes. Trimming is a management practice that helps farmers orchestrate biological activities. The humidity in our field, or water in our system, comes not just from rain or irrigation pipes. A good farmer as a natural resource manager must know how to handle beneficial soil microorganisms able to absorb moisture from the atmosphere. The farmer should also know how to optimize photosynthesis and dew formation that happens in a well managed stratified system. An extended interpretation of trimming/weeding and its relationship with natural processes that benefits farmers is the theme of this week’s video.
