For anyone already practicing, or turning to, biodynamic gardening and farming methods, numerous detailed questions arise, such as:* How do you choose your seeds?* What fertilisers should you use?* Which natural products are most effective?This manual, fully illustrated with explanatory diagrams and photographs, provides the answers. The book covers* all aspects of making and using biodynamic preparations and composts* managing the health of plants* weed control* parasite control* issues around mixed cultivation* animal care* specialised crops and planting such as fruit trees and vinesAlthough the technical aspects of biodynamic growing are exhaustively covered, the author also considers the human qualities necessary for this kind of agriculture to succeed. This is an invaluable guide for all biodynamic growers to have to hand daily.
After 22 years of practicing biodynamic agriculture on a mixed farm in Burgundy, Pierre Masson turned his skills and knowledge towards advising and training in the field of biodynamics. His own experience on the land and his visits to a wide range of farms and gardens over 35 years have given him a broad and practical vision of biodynamics.
