Where the SRI field is significantly larger and still standing, the conventionally produced field is destroyed.

The farmers of EHNE have us speaking throughout Euskal Herria. So far we have participated in their annual meeting, given presentations in four agricultural schools, a town hall meeting and a group of environmental organizations, held an open question and answer session with young, beginning farmers in EHNE, and given press conferences and book presentations in Bilbao, San Sebastian and Pamplona. The schedule is grueling, but the conversations are stimulating and the food is fantastic. Paul Nicholson and Paxti Gaztelumendi of EHNE accompany me in the presentations.
