The Secrets of Fertile Soils by Erhard Hennig

This stimulating book provides a comprehensive and highly practical insight into the interdependent relationships between soil, plants, animals and human beings. It allows the reader to participate in the fascinating, mysterious life cycle of those soils which are still healthy. It is not only the quality of our air and water that are threathened. but also our soils. Our arable land has been exhausted by overuse and lacks the nutrients essential for plants, animals and human beings. Depletion of humus is already described as extreme in some areas, with an accompanying destruction of essential soil microorganisms. This lack of soil nutrients and microorganisms along with the insiduous pollution of soil and groundwater are having a demonstrable effect on the health of the people who derive theri nourishment from such soil.

On this subject, the author offers advice. His remedy, derived from over six decades of observations of nature, appears simplistic ! at the first glance: Always maintain the fertility of the soil. However, to achieve this objective, we must refer to the knowledge gained by our ancestors in gardening and agriculture and restore proper cultivation techniques. Hennig addresses all components of the soil: microorganisms, microbes as well as soil nutrients and minerals. The reader will also explore natural fertilisation using compost and rock dust as well as their origins and their roles in the formation of humus. Their properties are indispensable for the maintenance of viability in the soil. With regard to fertilisation supplying energy, Erhard Hennig emphasises that the condition of the soil is directly linked to the mental and physical well-being of the human race as well as animals. Even beyond this, Hennig establishes the bridge from the threats to life on earth to the ordering of matter in space , with the premise that there is no pure matter, as earth and space are influenced by the spirit.

The author discusses the basic of soil science for professionals, and also makes it easily understandable for those outside the fileds of gardening and agriculture.

Hopefully this book will contribute to awakening the spirit of resistance in thinking individuals and compel them to draw the necessary conclusions in their personal lives, as well.
