Same as it ever was.....

This caught my eye. Maybe you've heard it before.

"Let a man profess to have discovered some new Patent Powder Pimperlimplimp, a single pinch of which being thrown into each corner of a field will kill every bug throughout its whole extent, and people will listen to him with attention and respect. But tell them of any simple common-sense plan, based upon correct scientific principles, to check and keep within reasonable bounds the insect foes of the farmer, and they will laugh you to scorn."

Benjamin Walsh "The Practical Entomologist" 1866


I had no idea Monsanto had been around that long.

Would I be sinning if I said "a single pinch of which being thrown into each corner of a field" sounds like bio-dynamic practices to me.

Just kidding, they make no claim of killing anything, just putting everything back in balance.
