In nature and in regenerative ranching, there are four ecosystem processes at work – the energy flow, water cycle, nutrient cycle and community dynamics. In an effective ecosystem, all four ecosystem processes are simultaneously highly functional. If any one of the four is disrupted or impaired in any way, the ecosystem itself is not highly functional.
The leaf is the primary part of a plant that captures sunlight for photosynthesis. For an optimum energy flow, we want abundant leaves.
To improve the health and profitability of our land, we must learn to effectively manage the natural systems by which it functions.
