Sinopse – The Soil and Health – A Study of Organic Agriculture – Sir Albert Howard

During his years as a scientist working for the British government in India, Sir Albert Howard conceived of and refined the principles of organic agriculture. Howard’s The Soil and Health became a seminal and inspirational text in the organic movement soon after its publication in 1945. The Soil and Health argues that industrial agriculture, emergent in Howard’s era and dominant today, disrupts the delicate balance of nature and irrevocably robs the soil of its fertility. Howard’s classic treatise links the burgeoning health crises facing crops, livestock, and humanity to this radical degradation of the Earth’s soil. His message — that we must respect and restore the health of the soil for the benefit of future generations — still resonates among those who are concerned about the effects of chemically enhanced agriculture.
