Perceptive points as usual. I remember the Kaisers saying that they produce four times the amount of crop as the average farm in their area, including the organic ones. Even if they don’t have exact science to prove this, and they only produce three times more, the anecdotal evidence is still valuable. they also saw their neighboring farms wash away in a violent rainstorm and they sustained only minimal damage. They were able to bring crops to market at the usual time while the others (who are usually in the same farmer’s markets with them) didn’t have crops to sell until October.
Science and facts are good if we re trying to prove a point. But if we are just trying to increase production in an agroecological fashion to say economically viable, I’d follow the Singing Frogs model any day.
