Abstract:

Our existence on our planet is precarious. Modern industrial agriculture is destroying the earth: desertification, water scarcity, toxic agricultural chemicals pervade the food chain, ocean ecosystem collapse, soil erosion, and massive loss of soil fertility. In India traditional agricultural practices includes the use of cow manure to make the compost that restores life to depleted soils. Now western practices, and chemical agriculture, are battling this ancient system for dominance in India. This battlemay just dictate the future of the earth, and present a blueprint for a post-industrial agricultural future. What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like? It looks like one man, one cow, and a bucket of cow-dung.
