When Plowman's Folly was first issued in 1943, Edward H. Faulkner startled a lethargic public, long bemused by the apparently insoluble problem of soil depletion, by saying, simply, -The fact is that no one has ever advanced a scientific reason for plowing.- With that key sentence, he opened a new era.
