Ideas such as "crop and soil weatherproofing," the "row support system," and the "tillage commandments," exemplify the practicality of the soil/root maintenance program that serves as the foundation for Schriefer’s highly-successful "systems approach" farming. Schriefer was a pioneer in developing an awareness of the relation of tillage to soil fertility, focusing on three major soil basics — soil aeration, soil water, and soil decay. This book covers such topics as soil chemistry, plant and soil dynamics, above- and below-ground plant management, row support fertilization, zone-tillage, disc-chiseling, and more. He focuses on reducing "yield-limiting factors" such as seed selection, excessive tillage and a dependence on technology.

Donald Schriefer passed from this life in 1998. He had spent more than five years battling acute leukemia, but he did not lie down and wait for death to come. He left this manuscript as a legacy to his lifelong friends -- the farmers -- knowing that those left behind would have it published. One of America's first "environmental agronomists," he is best known for his consulting work on behalf of many of the country's largest, most successful farmers. His innovation in tillage systems, foliar feeding of crops, and soil fertility management earned him the respect of both conventional and ecological farmers. He contributed frequently to agricultural publications and was well known for his lectures and seminars. His other books include From the Soil Up and Tillage in Transition.
