How to large scale farms create enough fermented material for acres of fields?

In the accounts I've heard they were making huge containers of ferment teas from all sorts of roots, leaves, and fruits added to the bases of rice / starch and sugars. Like the vats used for beer and wine (though maybe not as sophisticated) as opposed to the mason jars a home gardener would use.

It's not dissimilar to worm tea that you'd get from a worm farm.  I have been eyeing getting a worm farm for years, but debate whether it is fair or not to raise worms in a desert.  They would bake inside their box in the summer; I don't have shade trees that would keep them cooler.

I'd forgotten about worm teas! That's a profession I'd be glad to have after SHTF... cultivating something farmers need themselves so you'd be assured some of their harvest when it's time to barter. I knew a "crazy worm lady" who raised huge amounts of worms in an old barn in the Texas heat, but back then I'd never immersed myself to ask how she battled the triple digits. I can't even imagine the southwest heat, I forget we still have humidity. The state's power grid already threatens more "coincidental" outages. That chitin was magical stuff though.

Have you seen the Back to Eden gardening documentary?

I haven't! That'll change soon though, thanks. Long past time to hunt those documentaries and courses that explain the science behind the philosophy, like which plants release certain minerals and with which others to group them. The guy who introduced me to permaculture had that stereotypic food jungle on his suburban lawns and he was sustaining plants that would've never survived our growing zone, otherwise.

Where I grew up we've only that dreaded, infertile red clay, so it was always raised beds or bust until a few years ago when we tried somethings new. Haybale gardening worked wonders, grew the plants like crazy, then broke down into topsoil to be used for years to come.

There's also a growing movement of Korean Natural Farming that uses fermented concoctions of produce to feed the soil minerals and bacteria just like we might our own gut using probiotics. Haven't seen this one in action (yet) but larger-scale natural farms are spreading the technique like wildfire because they're seeing double and triple their normal yields.

This is the man who's championed the technique, he gives in-depth online classes with his son (some lectures are also free on youtube.) His son has also translated their teachings into some books.

For a long time it was obvious they used sites like /x/ to gauge the range of this site's disclosure and discussions. Bait and fishing topics posted near immediately after certain threads here, or repeating several times in the following week(s) for their scripted comments to sow apathy in the OP.

Perhaps no silver around but I'm glad for all the iron. Hollywood's artillery is not dismantled, but turned against them. Social media inflicts the machine more self-harm than ever, by no coincidence. This narrative was never theirs to direct and their trials accelerate their fall. 2020 vision still spreads and they did not bury 2016 deep enough to keep the dogs out.

Would God that I could draft a perfect code. But our torch will be passed alongside the pitchfork. Then hour enemy must meet a new Satan, en masse.
