A Well Fed World

A friend of mine from Saskatoon, Al Scholz, is working on a dryland farming research project in Kazakhstan this summer.  It is his first venture into the FSU.  He has the fanciest blog site I have ever seen with lots of pictures and good explanations.  http://awellfedworld.tumblr.com/

If you are interested in seeing how farming is carried out in large scale on land similar to the Canadian Prairies, this blog is for you.  Much of the farming methods are still conventional till however there is great interest in minimum tillage and Al is there to demonstrate how it can be used to good advantage for grain production in Kazakhstan.
