Biodynamic agriculture, developed by Rudolf Steiner, is an organic farming method that focuses on soil fertility using manure and compost. The Biodynamic system extends from the spiritual world view known as Anthroposophy. Biodynamic practitioners claim that their methods are organic and treat the farm as one organism. Unfortunately this form of agriculture shows several drawbacks and relies heavily on magic.
