Lesson 1: History of Modern Agriculture and Emergence of Biodynamic Agriculture

Free Preview

This lesson examines how agriculture has changed over time from depending on natural resources to relying on monocultures and an increased mechanization of agriculture.  It discusses the need for a redesign of the industry and also covers a brief history of biodynamic agriculture.

Please note: When Dr. Thimmaiah refers to the previous five decades of farming, he is speaking of Asia and third world countries. Americans and many Europeans should view this as ten decades ago, not five.
