Biodynamic farming is a type of organic agriculture. Both methods seek to sustain ecosystems, but biodynamic farmers adhere to unique philosophical principles, as well as to guidelines more stringent than those required by the USDA for organic certification.
In the 1940s, influenced by a movement already under way in Europe, publisher J. I. Rodale popularizedand namedE#34;organic" agriculture in the United States.
Today, it places primary importance on soil health, eschewing synthetic chemicals, which pollute the environment and deplete nutrients and microorganisms in the soil. It is characterized by the use of natural soil amendments, manual/ mechanical weed control, nontoxic pest management, and sustainable animal husbandry.
Biodynamic agriculture meets organic standards but predates the organic movement by about 20 years.
