It seems as though modern day farmers would be quite interested to know how they sustained the soil without fertilizers.It would also be interesting to know the cause of death(at age 24).Obviously life expectancy was much shorter at that point in time.

Its not hard to understand if you consider hand tilled rows and plenty of rain. Not near the production per acre as we have today. Especially after 11,000 years of all sorts of decayed vegetation and animals have enriched it.
