The development of organic farming has been decisively shaped by two men. Dr. Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, laid the foundations of what was then known as organic-dynamic farming back in the 1920s. In addition to soil management techniques, farming according to anthroposophical guidelines also takes into account the influence of the moon and stars. In the 1940s, Dr. Hans Müller developed the organic-biological farming method. This method is now widely used throughout the world, and is also followed by Biotta.
These two pioneers regarded the earth not as a necessary evil, as agricultural chemists thought of it back then, but much more as an essential biological stage which one cannot bypass with impunity. Each cm³ of living soil is home to billions of micro-organisms (bacteria, enzymes and fungi). Hence a handful of earth contains more living things than there are people on Earth; these living things play a very important role in preparing plant food. The healthier and more varied the micro-organisms, the healthier and more resistant will be the plants that, in turn, give us the means to defeat diseases and pests ourselves.
