Cultivation

Chapter

Abstract

The common answer to the common question “Why is soil cultivated?” (thereby meaning physically disturbed by cultivation instruments) is “In order to aerate it.” Simple as the answer may sound, it is highly deceptive. One might equally say “Why do we eat?” and answer “To live.” In both cases the question and answer skip from start to finish and leave out all the middle.
