Biological Agriculture

Bio-agriculture is an inclusive term for any agricultural land that uses organic or biodynamic farming methods, with no synthetic fertilisers or agricultural chemicals.

Biodynamic grain cropping increases soil quality, compared to chemical cropping, which leaves soil degraded. Biodynamic grain cropping produces higher protein levels across most seasons. It produces higher yields in poor seasons, with normal to slightly lower yields in good seasons, compared to chemical cropping regimes. These higher protein levels balance any reduction in grain yield during good seasons. Yields improve as soil humus levels build over time, allowing farmers to pull the same plough with lower horse-power tractors as the soil improves
