Turn Deserts into Fertile Land -- Produce Food  Save our Earth -- Save Humanity Success Stories
SUCCESS STORIES Land   imprinting   was   invented   in   1976   with   several   prototypes   being   assembled   in   Tombstone, AZ   that   same   year.   Land   imprinting demonstrations   A   though   J   were   conducted   from   the   late   seventies   to   the   early   nineties   in   the   vicinity   of   Tucson,   AZ   where   the annual   rainfall   ranges   from   10   to   13   inches   depending   on   the   elevation.   Land   imprinting   quickly   proved   to   be   superior   to   the rangeland   drill   for   establishing   vegetation   in   the   desertified   lands   of   the   Sonoran   Desert.   Land   imprints   hold   soil   and   rainwater resources   in   place   for   germinating   seeds,   establishing   seedlings,   and   growing   plants.   Quantities   of   land   biomass   and   carbon storage   rise   abruptly   after   the   first   good   rain   following   imprinting   as   revealed   in   the   following   photographs.   Imprints   are   sufficiently stable   to   wait   for   a   period   of   up   to   5   years   for   a   good   rain   to   occur   in   the   Desert   Southwest.   Finally,   land   imprinting   holds   great promise for reversing land desertification, globally.

2)   Demo   B: Avra   Valley, AZ   Seeded/Imprinted,   September-   November   1978.   Land   desertification   caused   by   a   series   of   human   disturbances including overgrazing and cotton farming, reversed in two years.
3) Demo C: Falcon Valley Ranch, AZ Seeded/Imprinted, March 1980. Land desertification caused by more than a century of overgrazing, reversed in 5 months because of adequate monsoonal rain.
