This staggering amount of urine and manure is not easily disposed of and is typically stored in shallow pits called lagoons.
In traditional farming, before the introduction of pesticides, crops were rotated every couple of years and then a ﬁeld was left fallow after seven years (a biblical command; Leviticus 25:4), effectively killing off pests, bacteria, and viruses by removing their food supply. 26 Therefore, their populations and the risk of disease can be decreased by crop rotation. However, a few diseases are able to infect more than one plant type, so crop rotation does not affect them. With today’s intensive agriculture, continuous monocultures of a single crop are the order of the day, and pesticides are now widely considered essential for pest control.

America needs a new land ethic, one that treasures the prime farmlands that have made the United States the breadbasket of the world.
