"Organic Futures" presents an overwhelming argument for replacing modern farming methods with organic techniques.

Exploring the history, politics and practicalities of organic farming, Adrian Myers shows how the current techniques of agriculture and horticulture based on chemical fertilizers, which inevitably bring about the deterioration of soil life, cannot provide a long-term sustainable future for humankind. "Organic Futures": shows what we can learn from 4,000 years of sustainable organic agriculture in the Far East; explains how organic farming is different from conventional agriculture; demonstrates the damaging effects of conventional farming; discusses the importance of maintaining soil fertility; and presents a vision of an organic future, including inspiring developments in both the West and the Third World.
