As a farmer, agri-businessman, educator, and author with four decades of experience under his belt, Gary Zimmer is recognized around the world for his dedication to improving farming by restoring soils. In this book, written with his daughter Leilani, Zimmer argues in convincing detail that an optimally productive soil contains a perfect balance of inorganic minerals, organic materials and living organisms. Zimmer relies less on modern improvements than on the "things we've learned by improving fertility in a natural, sustainable way over many years." Adjusting for different soils, a farmer can use the interaction of minerals, materials, and organisms to foster natural chemical reactions that feed plants perfectly. This book offers invaluable scientific support for committed organic farmers as well as conventional farmers who'd like to reduce chemical inputs and use natural processes to their advantage.
