In this book, eco-agriculture is explained — from the tiniest molecular building blocks to managing the soil — in terminology that not only makes the subject easy to learn, but vibrantly alive. Eco-Farm truly delivers a complete education in soils, crops, and weed and insect control. This should be the first book read by everyone beginning in eco-agriculture . . . and the most shop-worn book on the shelf of the most experienced.

The stuff you don't know.
Half way through book. Very educational and enlightening. Nice to have a reference for the ppm's on the soil reports. I hope there is a summary of reference ppm for all required nutrients. Great reference book.
Book is very informative and eye opening.
