I’m a huge fan of Ben Hartman, author of The Lean Farm Guide to Growing Vegetables. On the topic of ordering seeds, he writes that 15% of a grower’s order should include new/experimental varieties. Anything less, and you’re probably missing out on innovative developments; anything more, and you’re probably experimenting too much. The same general idea—if not the specific percentage—applies to farming as a whole. If you’re unwilling to try new tools and techniques, you’ll get stuck in your ways and never improve. But if you experiment too much at once, you could jeopardize the whole operation. So it’s important to choose your experiments wisely.
