Take a walk with biodynamic pioneer and farm consultant Hugh Lovel and John Henry Nelson around our three Living Web Farms in Mills River, NC. Hugh Lovel is the author of “A Biodynamic Farm for Growing Wholesome Food” and “Quantum Agriculture: Biodynamics and Beyond”. His articles appear in Acres USA and related organic farming periodicals such as Acres Australia and biodynamic journals around the world. Hugh is a farmer and an international consultant to dairy farms, graziers, broad-acre grain growers, and fruit and vegetable producers. As a multidisciplinary scientist, he has introduced comprehensive soil testing using both the Albrecht approach and a total acid digest test that more clearly reveals what is actually present in soils. Above all Hugh has been a leading pioneer of the new science of quantum agriculture. Quantum agriculture is a four-fold farming system first developed by Hugh Lovel in 1986 as a research project for Union Agricultural Institute in Blairsville, Georgia. This system is being used by thousands of farmers around the globe.
Learn how agriculture works in harmony with nature and how to improve yields, reduce cultivation, eliminate weeds, pests and diseases and improve crop responses to weather while harvesting both carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere and building these into the humus in our soils. In part 5, Hugh observes the conditions of a field at our farm that regularly floods and sits in pools of water. He shares some of his techniques for dealing with a similar situation at his farm.
