The history of agricultural innovation over the past century, since the inception of agro-chemistry and mechanization, has been one of many great leaps and bounds. Today’s agricultural developments and trends in the field of organic production are not a reversal to some older outdated mode of production, a twisted form of the “noble savage” concept, but rather a re-envisioning of biocentric principles in the guise of modern technology. Organic no-till, specifically, utilization of the roller crimper in a rotational no-till system, is one such modernization of biocentric agricultural principles.
