Example text

After partially loosening this layer it was found that all the crops extended their roots to a similar depth, that is, as far as the nonloosened part. Similar results on sandy soil were found with oats by the Institute for Soil Fertility at Haren. Similar results for other crops are noted by the 43 Institute for Soil Survey, Wageningen. The situation concerning rooting sketched here probably occurs in the HowardBalfour method of Agriculture. Whether a plant such as chicory, which is attributed a plough sole "dissolving" capacity by conventional agricultural specialists, has a real role to play in Howard-Balfour agriculture, as far as the utilization of minerals in the subsoil by means of deep and penetrating rooting is concerned, remains doubtful in general.

According to this perspective, the aim of manuring is not the direct administration of nutrients to the plant, but the support and intensification of the life processes of the soil so as to ensure the optimum growth of the plants. In the latter case, the cooperation of plant and soil determines the manner and extent in which the nutritive relationship between both progresses. Due to this perspective the use of mineral fertilisers prepared by chemical processes, particularly synthetically prepared nitrogen, is rejected by proponents of the biodynamic method because the cooperation between soil and plant is thus worsened.

In a living system the amounts of various elements are determined (for example, by chemical analysis of a comparable system). The weight of the system is esta­ blished. During a period of life of the system the incoming and outgoing quanti­ ties of the elements in question are determined. Sometimes the amount of calories taken in with the food and the quantities of incoming and outgoing energy are also determined. After that period of life the amounts of the various elements are again determined.
