September 2014 LSAT Section 2 Question 20
Mehran on October 24, 2018Hi @smilde11, thanks for your post. Let's first assess the stimulus. This one presents an argument; the conclusion is "to significantly improve the soil structure, farmers will need to abandon the use of chemical fertilizers." What premises are provided in support of this claim? Well, you are told that in a certain region (1) the introduction of chemical fertilizers led farmers to abandon the practice of periodically growing a "green manure" crop in a field to rejuvenate the soil, and (2) as a result, the soil structure in a typical farm field is poor.
