Author Outline and Back Cover

**NOW AVAILABLE in the UK **- – – Still available for Pre-Order in the USA

It was initially intended as a short project but as I put in more energy and dialogue between publishers, it developed into something more substantial. The book looks at liquid amendments from a variety of perspectives with a focus on holistic practice and the food web. A subtext gradually emerged which engaged with the relationship between science, our understanding of reality and the topic area which culminated in a rationale for alternative practice.

From the back cover (Publisher’s account) :

Learn everything you need to know about feeding your garden,
orchard and smallholding with homemade and chemical-free ‘teas’.
Packed with recipes for creating nutrient-rich, healthy soil, to give
you healthy plants and ecosystems, Eric Fisher offers an in depth
history of organic agriculture and the rise of chemical inputs.
He explores the importance of nutrients, their cycles, and the
structure of soil.
When we understand how soil and nutrients work, we can diagnose
problems and find natural remedies. Eric enables growers to
diagnose plant diseases and pest problems, and to create the right
remedy for every situation. He also provides recipes for natural
pesticides and insecticides.
Compost Teas for the Organic Grower shows the reader how to
use the plants growing around us to create teas, as well as how to
grow specific plants to encourage beneficial insects for healthy
ecosystems.
If we care for the health of our plants and soil without using
chemicals, we reduce inputs, save money, and demonstrate to agribusiness
that polluting, fossil fuel based chemical inputs are not
necessary.

“This book is a dual gem: full of practical applications for
organic growers seeking to develop their skills with compost
teas, whilst at the same time, being scientifically grounded
so that it offers a broader perspective looking to shape a better
approach to human food production without synthetic
chemicals.”

Dr Colin Trier, environmental scientist and cider producer
