[permaculture] Organic Farming Beats No-Till?

In latin america, where they use green manure/cover crop systems, they have 
an animal drawn machine, called a rolo-faca (i think) that is used to cut up 
the cover crop.  No herbicides needed.  They can go to a completely no-till 
system in a few years. In some places, ploughs are rusting after abandonment 
and dis-use.
