Synopsis

A Biodynamic Manual Practical Instructions for Farmers and Gardeners by Pierre Masson

For anyone already practicing, or turning to, biodynamic gardening and farming methods, numerous detailed questions arise, such as: * How do you make and use the key preparations, such as horn manure and horn silica? * How do you develop living, fertile soil? * Which treatments are best for controlling weeds, pests and disease? 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 * controlling weeds and pests * working with cosmic rhythms * combatting common diseases such as mildew * working with seeds, pastes and root dips * care of fruit trees and vines This second edition also has extensive new chapters on large-scale farming, including livestock and cereal cultivation, and vegetable farming. The whole book has also been completely revised and updated. Although 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.

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
