Should You Keyline Plow?

Keyline plowing has been promoted here in the United States as a tool for creating topsoil, improving water penetration and holding in soils, and a means of sequestering carbon. Yet there is very little research and no data showing these results. Here’s what we do and don’t know about it.

As always, if you’ve got research and data to share please let us know! We’re always willing to change our minds based on good science and data.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
