I don't think the solution is easy as 1:10 or 1:1000 it has to do with your zone and where you are located. You are in the temperate zone, this area is prime for growing vegetables. It is considered grassland soil and has the best fertile soil. There is also a high level of humidity where the atmosphere holds lots of water. I am in Houston I am not in a temperate zone so I can not follow what you are doing there, it will not work here. That is because my environment is very hot in summer so the soil structure is very different. If you notice there is a war going on right now in some parts of that region, why is that region so important for growing food? For instance how sunflower oil and food supply production could play a role in the shortage of food. Well most of the food for the UN was coming from that region to supply to the poor nation. If you look at the midwest in the United States ,those are prime areas to grow main crops for America . Now the other thing I notice people from that temperate zone have all kinds of ideas like yours for instance JADAM, KNF, bokashi, elaine Ingham method, anaerobic, aerobic ect.... Well, it will work maybe for a couple of days and then go back to its original state because you have not fixed the problem. If in your JADAM method you are saying to put salt in a hot climate zone, which will take out moister from the soil. I am trying to take out the salt build-up already as it is. The heat wave is also taking out moister and there is no humidity meaning the atmosphere is not holding any water. That means I have created a perfect environment for dirt, I am the one that destroyed my soil I should of hired a consultant. I have been doing JADAM for 3 years and spent a lot of money, then the original goal of mine was to save money. I finally gave up because I know conventional framing is not possible in this tropical zone. You told me to look at nature if you get any ideas and " ask nature". Well in that case nature uses these method to sustainability;1. Canopy 2.Sub canopy 3. Shrub layer 4. Herbaceous 5. Rhizomes 6. Soil surface 7. Vertical layer . This is what I see when I look at nature, what do you see when you look at nature Things are constantly changing around us as time is moving, it is our responsibility to move with it or stay behind and ask why I did not do that. Something happen after when I watched this video!
how did I know it was going to this be a drought this year, and the hurricane season started too. So Now if a hurricane pass through the region. I didn’t know the county will strict the use of water. It’s an experience not only for me but lost of people. They also raise the price of water by 30% so now I am getting a higher bill. It’s not worth the headache to do any farming if you don’t understand your zone and your region. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jLZ0KtNx354
We’ll jack you solved the mystery, this is why location matters the weather I need a premaculture design. Neil spackman 1. Know you original climate 2. Know your water cycle 3. Know your mineral cycle 4. Find the niche in your water cycle 5. Precipitation vs evaporation 6. Anti evaporate measure 7. Species selection 8. Timing 9. Creating Microclimate 10. Enabling ecological succession https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HW6GYcMXpGw&t=2309s
Well if you can’t irrigate and you don’t get rain, then yes you will struggle using the JADAM method or any farming method until the water supply is resolved. Water is the first input listed in the JADAM book.
This is not me saying it, its climate change. And where I live they also put a limitation on water consumption. They are running out of water in my county. This drought his happing every where the earth is getting hotter and hotter. There are a lot of farms that lost there crop north of here because of this.
