biodynamic agriculture

Biodynamic agriculture began in the year 1924, with the Austrian philosopher and scholar Rudolf Steiner. Known as the inventor of anthroposophy and the founder of this type of agriculture, he was in charge of providing a solution to farmers at the time when they complained about the deterioration of their crops due to the constant use of chemical fertilizers.

The most significant difference from biodynamic agriculture is that it works with the vital energies of nature and not only with material needs.
The principles of biodynamic agriculture are based on Steiner's philosophy and are based on the use of plant and animal substances and under esoteric precepts, which take into account the planetary alignment and the phases of the moon to carry out any agricultural work. It should be noted that these are beliefs not proven by the scientific community.

Despite having numerous detractors, biodynamic agriculture is one of the most studied economic activities due to the interest generated by its effectiveness. The ecological benefits generated by this system are evident, which only uses natural and healthy agricultural techniques, avoiding the use of any chemical substance and thus providing a situation of natural equilibrium. For all this, biodynamic agriculture has a more than notable advantage over traditional agriculture.

Defeder Alcolea products are very much in line with the principles of biodynamic agriculture in terms of the integration of crops with livestock, the recycling of nutrients and the absence of chemical substances.

For this reason, Defeder is considering certifying some of its products with Demeter, the brand for biodynamic agricultural products. The requirements of the Demeter Regulation are higher than those required for organic products, so this certification would give Defeder a differentiation from other manufacturers of organic products.
