The Harmonious Wheatsmith explains a method for growing grains without ploughing. Developed by Marc Bonfils in France, this method promotes soil health and reduces nutrient leakage by growing wheat alongside perennial stands of clover. Bonfils experimented to find the optimal timing and spacing for a favorable harvest. With many parellels to the techniques of Masanobu Fukuoka from Japan (author of The One Straw Revolution), this is often referred to as the Fukuoka-Bonfils method.
