modern agriculture - an insight

at pR, we are hoping to be become 'do nothing' farmers a la fukuoka.
'do nothing' is difficult to explain and define in a single post. pointing to 'natural way of farming' by fukuoka to those interested readers.

to understand this philosophy, one has to start with some perspective on current agriculture with some historical background.
here is a useful article - modern agriculture - which efficiently addresses the above.
recommended reading for all.

I am sure you would have already read 'An Agricultural Testament' by Albert Howard, which Vandana Shiva is a must-read for everyone interested in organic farming. Link:
