Keyline Design

For larger scale projects we often utilize Keyline Design, a carbon farming technique that works with the landscape’s topography to store water, reduce erosion, and support soil productivity. Keyline uses the specialized Yeoman’s Plow to cut shallow rips through the soil in an off-contour pattern, encouraging root growth and water infiltration. AppleSeed has had great success using Keyline Design to de-compact pastures and prepare land for orchard and nut grove plantings, as well as for annual vegetable cultivation.
