Nutrient Sequestration

Location: Lee Tesdell's Farm, South of Slater, IA
Featuring: Family Farmer Lee Tesdell

“Five hundred years from now we might realize that we shouldn’t have been farming this way,” Lee Tesdell observes. “We’re in this agricultural system that has some built in problems and we’re leaving it all for future generations to figure out.”

“If we leave the farm bare, those nutrients will run into the water and contribute to its degradation.”
