Title: The Ideal Soil v2.0 – A Handbook for the New Agriculture
Author: Michael Astera with Agricola
Blurb: Recently revised, this how-to manual tells exactly how to go about creating an ideal soil through understanding your soil test results so you can change your farming practices to a more sustainable and healthier model that does not require large yearly inputs of fertiliser or organic matter.
Based on the premise of a new agriculture where being well-fed leads to health (soil, animals and humans). This book focuses on the least known part of sustainable agriculture – an understanding of reading and evaluating a soil test and then balancing mineral nutrients in the soil. Understanding soil mineral balance once achieved, results in insecticides and other rescue chemicals dropping away.
