Healthy Crops: A New Agricultural Revolutionby Francis Chaboussou
Synopses & Reviews
This work powerfully asserts the idea that rather than using pesticides, the key to helping crops resist attacks from pests is to improve their strength through natural processes. Many of industrial agriculture's fundamental principles for fighting disease, in particular the reliance on pesticides and fertilizers, are explained and convincingly challenged and a new set of guiding principles for an ecological agricultural system are presented as a genuine alternative to the widespread use of chemicals.
Having shown how chemical pesticides and fertilisers damage the metabolism of plants, increasing their vulnerability to pests and disease, the author argues for balances plant nutrition as the only truly preventative measure.
