More ag science for your perusal:

Forget time consuming and expensive soil testing - if you want to know if your soil has what it takes to grow healthy crops, just bury your underwear.

You read that correctly. Bury your underwear. In fact, bury several pairs all over your farm.

The theory is (this version comes from The Telegraph in Great Britain) that you should bury your 100% cotton underwear for two months. During that time, everything in healthy soil should break down your tighty-whiteys and leave just the elastic waistband behind. If that's the case, congratulations! If not - better sell the farm.

You're laughing now. But, at some point, I bet you think about doing it. I won't judge.

Go ahead. Do it. Nobody'll see you in that field.
