Repairing agrarian worlds through no-till

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperCommunication

Abstract

This paper explores the notion of ‘repair’ in relation to no-till farm practices and asks what new beginnings look like in this context. Taking its departure in the windy spring fields of mid-West Jutland in Denmark, and conventional farmers’ different incitements and troubles related to no-till practices, this paper will address how no-till practices confronts dominating farming paradigms build on a premise of high yield efficiency, while simultaneously maintaining patterns of short-term, high yield systems. I will argue that sustainable repair work in agro-industrial settings often fail to transform agricultural practices because it fails to accommodate or consider the implications of what it means to be a farmer in a short-sighted, industrialised agrarian world.
