Add 50%waste carpet by weight to Farm Soil
Used carpets are currently disposed in local dumps. If a collection system (installers) were created, the carpets can be collected in bale form. A shredding operation would render these used carpets ready to be ploughed into farm soil. The carpet material will hold water for extended periods of time thus reducing the need to add water to the soil. I would plant feed corn from Monsanto and use round up to kill weeds.
Since I am now retired, I could set up a pilot program if I had the funding. My involvement is not essential.
