Biointensive sustainable mini-farming. III. System performance--initial trials

Biointensive sustainable mini-farming. III. System performance--initial trials

Journal of sustainable agriculture 19(2): 77-83

The purpose of this paper is to: briefly describe the system performance of the "Grow Biointensive" method of agriculture in the initial trials at Palo Alto, California in a C-horizon molisol material including water use; first year yields; and a second year comparative experiment with broccoli. The data collected at this site, Ecology Action's newer site in northern California near Willits and at the related projects in India and Russia described in this series of articles have not been developed and analyzed on a statistical basis. The results in the different soils, climates and geographic regions involved appear to be significant enough over an almost three decade period to merit statistical evaluation by academic institutions.
