Biodynamic farming and the soil

Biodynamic agriculture evolved in the 1920's when the problem of diminishing fertility and vitality of crops and livestock was first recognised as a result of the introduction of new methods of farming at that time. It is based on a series of lectures given by Rudolf Steiner.

It includes the principle that the farm is seen ideally as a self-contained organism, taking care of the health and vitality of soil, crops, livestock and farmer. This approach was later to become the foundation for organic farming. It also includes the use of lunar and planetary rhythms, biodynamic compost and spray preparations.
