Biodynamic agriculture is a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming, but it includes various esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner (–). Initially developed in , it was the first of the organic agriculture movements. It treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and. Screen house experiments were conducted to ascertain the effects of soil amendments with pig excrements/manure at different levels (0 (controls), 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 t ha –1) on the management of Meloidogyne javanica at different inoculum densities (0 (controls), 2, and 4, eggs) on the African yam bean. Soil amendment with pig manure significantly (p≤) improved on the.

  The Rodale Institute has been, for a full 30 years now, conducting a long-term comparative Farming Systems Trial. Starting in , when it was already abundantly clear that industrialising nature was creating far more problems than it solved, the Rodale Institute began documented research comparing organically fertilised fields and conventionally fertilised fields on its Author: Craig Mackintosh.   Suzuki suggests that organics use less energy than conventional systems. But then states organics require more labour to remove weeds. I understand about 70 percent of the labour spent in traditional subsistence organic food production systems in Africa involve women hoeing for weeds.

Organic farming refers to agricultural production systems used to produce food and fiber. Organic farming management relies on developing biological diversity in the field to disrupt habitat for pest organisms, and the purposeful maintenance and replenishment of soil fertility. Within agriculture several organizations, sharing a prejudiced view of nature, biodynamic and organic-biological, promoted their agricultural methods as a solution to the environmental problems. One theory of organic farming, biodynamic farming, which is part of a comprehensive philosophy called anthroposophy, was presented by Steiner in

An organizer, consultant, and educator in the alternative agriculture movement, Grace Gershuny has been active in the field since the s when she worked for the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), developing its first organic certification program.

As a leader in the movement, Gershuny helped to establish both the Organic Trade Association and the Organic Farmer: The Digest of. There are many articles now written about organic farming and there are many experts in the field. Noteworthy from these articles is that the land as such is never addressed.
