Natural sequence farming

Natural sequence farming is a way of restoring degraded, deforested, eroded or salinated land to full fertility. It uses major earth works to copy natural water courses, thereby controlling floods, restoring ground cover, preventing soil erosion, and restoring fertility. It was developed in Australia by Peter Andrews in the 1970s and is chiefly suited to desert environments.
