Science In Agriculture
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 in the soil. Science in Agriculture is a concise recap of the main schools of thought that make up eco-agriculture — all clearly explained. Gain a working knowledge of chemistry, physics, and plant biology as applied to agriculture. Discover what weeds are trying to tell you about your soil's fertility needs. Learn how to design and implement a program to produce crops, pastures, turf, landscape or ornamentals of balanced nutritional and mineral content. Both farmer and professional consultant will benefit from this important work. Copyright 1992, 2000, softcover, 376 pages.
Anatomy of Life & Energy in Agriculture
The energies in fertilizers and in the cosmos do not often move needles, but they preside over crop production. As this manual makes clear, through learning to tap and use "life-force energy" it is possible to develop food production practices that are both high quality and nondestructive. Since high sugar and mineral levels confer immunity to bacterial, insect and fungal attack, a complete brix chart on crops is included. Andersen's chapters outline in detail the difference between deadly slow-kill agribusiness farming and farming as it should be. Copyright 2004, 2014, softcover, 114 pages
