Title: Science in Agriculture
Author: Dr Arden Andersen
Blurb: Biological farming is a “best of both worlds” mix between organic and conventional farming practices, involving careful monitoring of crops and soils to ensure production is of high quality.
By ignoring the truth, ag-chemical enthusiasts are able to claim that pesticides and herbicides are necessary to feed the world. But science points out that low-to-mediocre crop production, weed, disease, and insect pressures are all symptoms of nutritional imbalances and inadequacies of the soil. The progressive farmer who knows this, and adds a measure of common sense will grow bountiful, disease- and pest-free commodities without the use of toxic chemicals. A concise recap of the main schools of thought that make up eco-agriculture – all clearly explained. Both farmer and professional consultant will benefit from this important work.
