Watching a Netflix documentary called Sustainable, about the problems with agriculture and industrial food production, and how to fix them. It's very interesting!

A quote from farmer Klaas Martens, being interviewed:
β€œevery one of those [agricultural] problems can be dealt with by improving and increasing the amount of biodiversity. [...] One of my observations from farming is that whenever we have a species be dominant it’s generally the right one for the conditions, and when we have a weed take over a field, it’s quite often nature taking a problem we’ve created and trying to fix it for us.”
