End of April we visited this crop farm in San José. Glad to see the soy beans were almost ready for harvesting. This crop farm was bought 7 years ago by a Dutch client. In 2013 we helped him find a tenant for row cropping for a period of 4 years. The last three years the land was rented out to a dairy farmer for cattle grazing. This gave soils the chance to recover and avoid erosion. This year was the first year the land owner could go back to row cropping. Land stewardship is about the integration of good agricultural practices. The dairy farmer, however, closed his operations after the rental agreement ended, but that´s a different story.
