This is an average of course, and there are many farms who have figured out how to produce high nutrient density crops even while the national average has been plummeting. Remineralize The Earth has just embarked on a research project in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts to document the effect on nutrient density of crops with the application of rock dusts and biological amendments.
