Ploughman’s Folly by Edward H. Faulkner



“The fact is, writes Faulkner, no one has ever  advanced a scientific reason for ploughing. With this key sentence he opened a new era in farming. He proves conclusively, in this title, that soil impoverishment, erosion, decreasing crop yields, and many of the adverse effects following drought or periods of excessive rainfall could be traced directly to the practise of ploughing”.

This ties in with the ancient practise of low till cultivation of the Orient – They did not do deep ploughing.
