Agro-Homeopathy – An Alternative for Agriculture



Hpathy Ezine, December, 2008 | Print This Post Print This Post |

Agriculture with homeopathy! Use of homeopathic remedies in agriculture, organic farming and gardening. Agro-homeopathy, that is Agriculture with Homeopathy is the safe and chemical free way to do farming!

The use of the homeopathic method in agriculture was introduced with Agro-homeopathy, which allows one to influence biological processes of plants to either accelerate or delay growth. Moreover, it can contribute to the control of plagues and diseases, directly promoting increased production.

In agriculture, homeopathic nosodes and autonosodes can assist in controlling plagues and diseases by use of the same disease of the plant, the plant damaged by the plague, or even the actual plague. Nosodes used in humans and animals are defined as homeopathic remedies prepared from diseased tissue or the product of disease, but are not defined chemically. Nosodes can be derived from animal, human or plant products. They can be complex compounds (of pathological secretions or excretions, infected tissues or causal organisms) or simple compounds (such as pure microbial or viral cultures).

Possibilities in agriculture

Utilizing homeopathic dynamizations on plants guarantees non-toxicity, because their mode of preparation assures that plants will in no way be contaminated. Agro-homeopathy is a win- win solution for farmers. They can use this method with confidence that it will neither damage the organism, the soil nor the plants.

Autonosodes represent the most immediate way to extend the use of homeopathy to farmers. They only require the plant damaged by the disease or plague, along with bottles and alcohol with which to prepare the dynamization. It is an easy, uncomplicated and immediate process that counters the damage caused by the plague or disease.
Agro-homeopathy has enormous potential as it covers the majority of crops and enables crop abundance and nutritive yields. Therefore further investigations must be performed to strengthen the advances already achieved in developing this science.

Important benefits of agrohomeopathy include economic savings and preservation of the natural ecology. Agro-homeopathy can reduce costs from agrochemicals, and it will not damage the organism, the ground under the plant or its surrounding area and the water that serves as the solvent in the dynamizations.

To elaborate further , the mother tincture is generally produced in an hydro-alcoholic solution of 87%. Dynamizations use 87% alcohol as a solvent, which if applied to the plant as is, would be toxic. That is why in agrohomeopathy we use distilled, boiled, tap or irrigation water in the two last dynamizations. This helps guarantee that there is no toxicity to the plant. The therapeutic effect is due to the initial substance of the mother tincture and the process of dynamization. This also reduces the costs.

Summarizing, the low costs of homeopathic potencies are represented by the following aspects:

The initial substance can be from the same disease of the plant, or from insects which attack the plant when an autonosode is produced. This minimizes costs because the farmer usually has the disease plant on his parcel of land. Dynamizations are generally produced in 87% alcohol, which is used to conserve the characteristics of the substance from which the dynamizations are prepared, but they can also be produced in water (with the exception of the mother tincture, when it is used immediately and if no further dynamizations are required).

The preparations can also be made in pure cane alcohol of 96%, expediting the production. The effect is the same whether produced in pure cane alcohol (96%) or in an hydro-alcoholic solution of 87%. Homeopathic dynamizations are not limited to the potency of 12CH. In general, low dynamizations (6CH), medium (12CH and 30CH) and high potencies (200CH, 1000CH, 10000CH) are used in humans, and are available commercially. Therefore, if a high dynamization is required, the producer will only be limited by the costs of commercial potencies. A tangential link to the savings is the increase in production volume due to the diminished damage caused by plagues and diseases.

The peculiarities of homeopathy and agro-homeopathy are: the theoretical foundation based upon natural therapeutic principles and the procedure that is in accordance with these principles. Prepared on these principles and with this procedure, homeopathy is able to heal diseases in humans, as well as solve health and nutrition problems in plants.

If there exists a certain analogy between the response of plants and of humans to dynamizations, then it must be considered that low potencies (6CH, 9CH) are to be applied for acute symptoms and damages in plants, medium potencies (12CH, 30CH) for problems with the tendency to a certain chronicity, especially in fruit trees. In some cases, these analogies can be applied; however, the zigzag effect requires more investigation into recognizing which dynamizations act most energetically. Thus, achieving the biological optimum does not necessarily correspond with the application of how low or high potencies are used in humans.
Agro-homeopathy in the ecological environment is harmless for the user. This is important, due to the fact that the use of agrochemicals and especially pesticides, frequently causes injury and sometimes death of farm workers. It is inhumane to use these chemicals if it is known that a poison can be inhibited by the same poison when it has been prepared homeopathically, and therefore, one can avoid injury and death of many humans. Agro-homeopathy and homeopathic potencies do not contaminate land or people and help support the regeneration of the ecosystem. The ground on which the potencies are applied is not at risk of increasing its salinity; the potencies do not injure micro flora and fauna, or the aquifer mantles.

Agrohomeopathy can also reverse damage already present in the ground because of the use of fertilizers or pesticides, or excessive salinity. There is already scientifically verified evidence supporting the relevancy of applying dynamizations to plants before and during sowing, or directly on the ground.

If the current agricultural practices in Mexico continue , then in the future Mexicans will be more dependent on the health industry, thereby allowing America to exercise greater control over Mexico, not only as an underdeveloped country, but also as a country dependent on medicines produced by transnational companies.

How to use homeopathic products in agriculture?

• Add one drop of the product to one liter of water, shake forcefully for one minute. Spread this dilution by means of an aerosol upon the plants.
• For backpacks or major volumes take this prepared liter and mix it with the water in the container.
• Seeds can be treated by immersing them in this solution for 20 minutes.

Some practical recommendations for the use of homeopathic remedies with plants:
Silicea
For slowly growing plants, attacks of mildew and other fungi. Rachitic plants. Interruptions of growth. Delay in production.

Carbo vegetabilis
After attacks of defoliating insects, water deficiency, change of temperature, flowers falling off, bud death, plants in compact soil.

Apis mellifica
For very thin plants due to high production, varieties with low heat tolerance, low fertility of pollen, falling off of flowers and fruits.

Calcarea phosphorica
Hydric stress, apical decay in fruits, acute sensibility after high production.

Magnesia carbonica
Abortion of flowers, absence of bloom, sensibility to low temperatures, excess or deficiency of magnesium or calcium.

Staphisagria
Attacks of plant louses (aphids), nematodes or mites (acarians), for plants with excess of shadow.

Nux vomica
For plants intoxicated by agro-chemicals.

Sulphur
Excess transpiration, for plants demanding fertilizers.

Arnica
For plants in mild climates (cold climate) during heat periods, after elimination of buds, after crops which have damaged branches. (Always when there is a mechanical damage of tissues.)

Calcarea carbonica, Calcarea phosphorica, Calcarea fluorica
For plants not responding to fertilization, of slow growth, necrosis on the border of leaves.

Chamomilla
Cham is utilized to increase absorption of nitrogen in plants.

Carbo vegetabilis
Can be used to reactivate bio-fertilizers in a balanced form.
Can be used together with Nux-v to decontaminate water.

Cina
To control nematodes, plagues and bacteria.

Valeriana officinalis
This remedy is efficient to provide disease resistance and also to activate phosphorus.

Examples of the use of homeopathic remedies

Cane plants infected with Xanthomonas albilineans and treated with Oscillococcinum 200 CH

Aplication of Cina 200 CH to plantlets of phiA 18 in an in-vitro culture.

A: before application & B: 21 days after application

Comparison of radish plants. On the left side, plants which were treated with Calcarea carbonica 30 CH, Calcarea phosphorica 30 CH, Calcarea fluorica 30 CH. On the right side untreated plants.

Perspectives of the use of homeopathic products in agriculture

• Control of viral, bacterial and mycotic diseases
• Control of plagues
• Control of contamination in in-vitro culture laboratories as well as bio-fabrics
• Amelioration of conditions for in-vitro plants in the phase of acclimatization
• Amelioration of nutritional absorption
• Germination of seeds

    I have been involved in Biodynamic Agriculture for many years and have used homeopathic remedies with great success. I did not know that anyone else was doing so until I read your article. The emphasis of Biodynamic Farming is the production of Humus. Agribusiness does NOT teach about the TWO root systems in plants. The small white roots digest HUMUS – HUMUS is the TRUE FOOD of plants. Agribusiness teaches that all plant nutrients must be water soluble for the plants to take them up. THis is false science and sell their toxic products. It makes the plants ill and stressed. That illness and stress is passed on to the consumers. If the plants eat HUMUS, they are healthy and have no predators so need no toxic sprays. They also act naturally so the homeopathic medicines, though rarely required work in perfect analogy to that in Humans and animals as you describe. I recommend that if you combine Biodynamic Farming with your medicines use and you will need NO fertilisers ever again. Plants will eat the humus you create in you soil. Water will be retained in the HUMUS so water management will be easier. Biodynamic products are in great demand and completely eliminate the need for any of the products of Agribusiness. This is proven every day in over 150,000 Hectares of Biodynamic Farms in Australia. There are similar areas in UK, NZ, USA, EU,India. There are even Biodynamic cotton farms in Egypt.

      Thanks for your comment. I agree with you. In my personal experience I have noticed that we can get better results if we seek a relationship between the effect of homeopathy in humans and applied it to plants

    I visited a Emeritus Professor that is still involved with research in compost producting. Her farther startes with Bio dynamic farming when she was a child ( she is 70+ )and she knows all about the Bio Dynamic compost making. She does the Chromatography to test the soil and composts – and follows it up with a chemical analysis of the same samples. The information about compost process that is not published yet is amazing

    She took me through to compost process – the whole proces photographed – and the microbes that break down the plant material, then starts to form small crystals, even mytes that fed on the mocrobes becomes a crystel in the proces. This crystal were removed and analyzed – it is all the minerals that were in the plant material that is prduced in a organic crystal format for the plants that is to be fed with the compost.
    Study done in South Africa.
    Thansk for all infromation shared.
