Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

the batch of government seeds that were test germinated in 2003 are germinating at roughly 30% ( from a selection of ten seeds ) with one that was ready to plant so i put it in potting mix in a peat pot and then under the grow light in the basement...
the second government seeds that were test germinated in 2013 are germinating at 90% ( once again from a selection of ten seeds ) including two that were ready to go into pots..so 15% of the test gerination seeds are planted with , obviously, more to come...
the old northern tepehuan teosinte seed from native seed search that i found in the bottom of a box has turned out to be 40% viable..it is doubtlessly newer seed than the 2003 government variety and the discovery means, as long as i freeze it, i will have viable seed for the foreseeable future...can't argue with that.
an ex- industrial worker ( the continued automation of jobs, condensing of ownership, plant closings, trade wars, and degradation of living standards here has rendered me a former industrial worker...now just part-time lumpen proletariat) and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
