A Muck Manual for Farmers

DANA, Samuel L.

Regular price $35.00 Sale

This enormously popular book asserts that the growth of plants results from the fundamental life principle of humus. Dana calls humus "geine" after the Greek earth goddess Gaia. His work relates strongly to vitalist Sir Humphrey Davy, author of "Elements of Agricultural Chemistry" (1813). A useful reference for the history and development of organic and sustainable agriculture.
