The Biological Farmer – Gary Zimmer

$25.52

Biological farming was around long before researchers and entrepreneurs began their search for the best biologicals. The biological farming system developed decades ago by Gary Zimmer doesn t manipulate soil life or sell it; it instead creates the conditions where soil life flourishes. His system feeds soil microbes, balances soil minerals, promotes tillage with a purpose, and relies on both cover crops and diverse rotations. Gary Zimmer and Leilani Zimmer-Durand have created a thoughtful road map for farmers looking to learn more about how their soils work, improve their current operations, build resilience against both natural and financial challenges, and leave a lasting legacy in healthy & productive soils.

The results…
– Higher yields & profits for growers
– Better forage & increased productivity for dairy and beef cattle
– More nutritious food for consumers
– Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
– More soil organic matter
– Improved soil health

In this greatly revised and expanded edition of the modern classic the authors take the art and science of biological agriculture to new levels.

His system feeds soil microbes, balances soil minerals, promotes tillage with a purpose, and relies on both cover crops and diverse rotations.

About Book

To begin with, biological farmers work with nature, feeding soil life, balancing soil minerals and tilling soils with a purpose. The methods they apply involve a unique system of beliefs, observations and guidelines that result in increased production and profit. This practical how-to guide explains their methods and will help you make farming profitable and fun. Biological farming does not mean less production; it means eliminating obstacles to healthy, efficient production. Once the chemical, physical and biological properties of the soil are in balance, you can expect optimal outputs, even in bad years.

Biological farming improves the environment, reduces erosion, reduces disease and insect problems, and alters weed pressure and it accomplishes this by working in harmony with nature. Above all, n this greatly expanded, revised edition of a modern farming classic, Gary Zimmer draws on a lifetime of farming experience and adds in the latest science and experience on modern issues facing farmers including the impact of GMOs, herbicide-resistant weeds, and more. For decades, Gary Zimmer has been developing new ways to engage and support soil life. His system feeds soil microbes, balances soil minerals, promotes tillage with a purpose, and relies on both cover crops and diverse rotations.
