Re: re. "proving" biodynamic techniques

        Your assertions about many of the details of Biodynamic Agriculture
may be reasonable questions. But do not let the short term narrowly focused
research questions answer questions about a long term operating system such
as a farm. Some of the details are appropriate and some are addressed by
complex mechanisms which we do not yet understand.  There has been some
research done on Biodynamics and there has been some positive results, some
not so. One statement which is probably true is that Biodynamic techniques
taken separate from the whole farm probably do not work. The BD method
develops a different kind of thinking in the users of it and sometime this
type of thinking provides approaches which result in improvements. Clearly
openness to this thinking is not for everyone.
