Joining us on today's episode is Silas Rossow, president of California Ag Solutions, which is a crop consulting company that helps growers leverage technologies and production practices that meet the needs of the crop and the goals of the farmer. Silas says they're known for their in depth understanding of the ecological environments where their growers operate, and their ability to use biomimicry and other nature based approaches that we will talk about. 

Silas received his college education at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and grew up around agriculture his whole life. Driving tractors, irrigating fields, and figuring out how crops grow was a valuable education. He started at CA Ag Solutions in 2008 and in 2014, he began managing the day-to-day operations. He says his drive to seek out the very best practices for California farmers comes from his love of agriculture and technology. 

In today’s episode we discuss regenerative practices in specialty crops, especially tree crops, although Silas works in plenty of other crops as well, we discuss how water becomes a factor in decisions to implement these practices, and the toughest transition of all, which is the mindset shift that this approach requires.

Also, stay tuned for a bonus segment at the end of today's episode featuring Livestock Water Recycling CEO Karen Schuett.
