Tilling the soil destroys its structure. Tilling slopes is especially destructive. He could have drilled narrow rows to plant seeds.
When we turn to machines and chemicals to make life easier, we make life harder for the nexf generation.

You might have a point when it comes to tilled soil and the chemicals especially. At the same time, we've been eating food in tilled soil for at least 5,000 years.

But thousands of tons of rocks have stopped that farmer along with the silt. So maybe it would be a good idea not to go off on a tangent when we have a monster staring at us in the face.
