One can hardly suggest we are struggling in these ‘chemically supported’ systems of our soils, plants, animals and humankind because there have been no clear indicators of failure or we simply did not know another way. The truth is anything but this.

Over a hundred years ago, research and publications began warning of the dangers of chemical fertility, the potential loss of food nutrition and soil destruction. But that was not all. Great discoveries, research and understanding were coming forth about the laws of nature as it applied to soils, soil chemistry, soil biology, plant growth and nutrition. This research and learning continued in earnest in the 1920’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, even on until now, but at even more accelerated rates in the past several decades. 

So how was it that the ‘industry’ chose to follow the path that has lead us to the current calamities that besiege us in agriculture today and away from the known and ongoing discoveries that continued to prove that natural law was the course to follow?

The Soil - Plant Connection and its Effects on All Other Life Forms

The TV commercials are a telling sign of the ill health of our society. Often the majority of the ads are for pharmaceuticals. The drug companies only sell that which is in high demand. What is that saying about the health condition of the people in this country? You see ads for diabetes, respiratory diseases, heart diseases, cancer, infertility, sexual dysfunction, digestive disorders of all kinds, pain and arthritis, depression, mood and psychological disorders just to name a few; the drug companies represent that ill-health is a pharmaceutical deficiency. It is a very profitable approach to managing disease—that of perpetual dependency.
