  • First generation offspring of two distinct parents of the same species. May be sterile or fail to breed. "hybrid vigour" which can improve yields. Enabled the commercial seed market. Farmers buys new hybrid seed each season. Replace traditional farm-saved seed
  • Known as "high response" seed. Fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides and water . Hybrids bred for yield at expense of hardiness. Reliance forces chemical inputs. Trapped farmers in debt cycle...suicide! Organic methods are substituted. Creates lifeless dusty soils prone to erosion.
  • 85% Agrichemical sales concentrated; Syngenta, Bayer, Monsanto, BASF, Dow y Dupont . Three corporations control 90% global grain trade; Cargill, Archer Daniels, Bunge. Dupont and Monsanto dominate gloibal seed markets. ¼ seed sale genetically engineered.
  • Traditional varieties selected for millenia. Adapted with people . Selected under organic conditions and so grow well without chemical inputs. More hardy, better flavor & more flexible. Hybrid selected for size, shape, production. OP dynamic, adapt to local ecosystems. Hybrids static.

  • Answer Lives in the Soil
    • Healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy animals and people...
    ½ kilo of healthy topsoil may contain several billion microorganisms.

  • Plant Guilds
  • Companion planting. For reasons that are still not well understood but have been thoroughly validated, many plants complement one another and grow more abundantly together - say bush beans and strawberries. In other cases, companion plants may serve to repel garden pests of various kinds, or may attract beneficial insects. For instance, borage helps to control tomato worms and also attracts pollinators like bees.

    • Attract insects.
  • Compaction and Acidity
  • Dock accumulates potassium and phosphorus and decompacts.
  • Calorie Farming Calorie farming. Here the emphasis is on growing the most efficient calorie-producers for human consumption. For instance, about 30% of all the crops that are grown on a small subsistence farm are high-calorie root crops, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips and others.

  • Carbon Farming
  • "Growing soil" is the key to long term farm sustainability. Some 50-60% of all the crops grown on a modern biointensive farm are dual-purpose crops that provide both calories for humans and an abundance of material for building compost piles. These crops include many grains, corn, fava beans and sunflowers, among others.
  • 60% Dual Purpose
    • Seed and grain crops.
      • Quinoa; tolerates dry and germination in cold...0 o
    • Carbon rich crops.
      • Produce high carbon content for area.
    • 30:1 Ratio for compost.

  • Seed Saving
    • In the past 100 years, lost 90% of vegetable varieties in the UK.
      • Local, unusual, home-saved varieties .
    • We need to find old varieties.
      • Local people, old gardens, seed savers.
    • Can create our own varieties.

    A "whole system" approach. Biointensive farming emphasizes the need for integrating all of the many parts and fully utilizing all of the available knowledge about farming techniques. Some of that knowledge is very subtle. For instance, it has been found that the flavor of lettuce depends on what time of day it is harvested. Lettuce is much sweeter if it is harvested before dawn, because the bitter saps descend into the plant roots during the night and rise up into the plant again when the sun comes up.
