Produce more abundant, high-quality crops with the information you'll find in this book!

Recent concerns over environmental pollution and food quality degradation caused by the excessive use of chemicals have prompted scientists and policymakers to re-evaluate modern agricultural processes and search for alternatives that will aid in the production of healthy foods and the protection of our environment. Nature Farming and Microbial Applications summarizes current research in the field, highlighting unique practices such as the use of microbial inoculants and various alternatives to chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

The principles of nature farming, as set forth by Japanese philosopher Mokichi Okada, must fulfill these requirements:

  • producing safe and nutritious food that promotes good health
  • providing economic and spiritual benefits to both producers and consumers
  • being sustainable and easily practiced
  • conserving and protecting the environment
  • producing sufficient high-quality food for an expanding world population

    To this end, Nature Farming and Microbial Applications addresses issues of concern to organic farmers, including:
  • soil fertility
  • pest control
  • effective microorganisms
  • photosynthesis
  • transpiration
  • plant-water relations
  • stress resistance of growing crops

    This well-referenced volume contains unique and original methods of modeling and analysis. It will be used again and again as a reference source for students and researchers.
