Video: Harvests Free Of Nitrates And Toxins
Who is the main "pest" in the garden?
Constantly communicating with gardeners and gardeners, I noticed the following tendency: many of them want only one thing - to find (purchase) some miracle drug that would solve all problems with harvest, fertility and, of course, with protection from pests. At the same time, almost every second person is ready to use anything, if only it helps today, without thinking at all about what will happen tomorrow.
It is also surprising that a huge number of intelligent people cannot even imagine that plants can grow and produce crops without mineral fertilizers. Everyone is just talking about macro- and microelements, about which is better: azofosk, nitrophoska or Kemir, and also about what to water the plantings so that there are no weevils, aphids, or ants? And at the same time they are surprised that scientists-chemists cannot give such a magic remedy.
At the same time, most of the interlocutors understand that products grown on mineral fertilizers, as a rule, are of poor quality, with a high content of nitrates, quickly deteriorate and are poorly stored. But there is no other way for them: manure is expensive, and try to buy a good one … Most simply do not know other ways of growing plants.

Therefore, mineral fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides are all ready to apply, if only it is easier and faster to get the result. Imagine this picture: you are in dire need of money, and you would suddenly be offered a decent and constant salary for the fact that you would slowly destroy your house, water the garden and vegetable garden with poisons, and add a little strychnine to the porridge for the kids every day. I think that even for a lot of money, neither you nor anyone else would agree to such an offer, and everyone would only be indignant. But in practice, many of us do just that, only for this they also pay extra money, buying and generously using mineral water, herbicides and pesticides in our garden, while polluting the environment and harming the health of both our own and those of our loved ones. I wonder who is the biggest pest in this case: humans or insects?
This state of affairs is due to the fact that traditional agricultural technology has long been unable to do without all these chemical attributes. The battle for the harvest continues, which means that the weapons for this battle must be constantly improved.
Should we fight against weeds? It is necessary. And with pests? Why, they destroy a third of the crop. So chemical plants and institutes are working on the creation of means of struggle, or rather, poisons or poisons of various effects. More than 1.25 million tons of pesticides are produced annually in the world. Where do you think they go? That's right, they poison both the environment and the unreasonable person himself.
And what about weeds and pests? And they are doing well: for each new poison, they have an antidote ready in the shortest possible time. Almost instantly, mutations take place towards the formation of populations resistant to pesticides, and such that their resistance exceeds their predecessors by hundreds and thousands of times. The enemy becomes hardened in the fight, for him these poisons are a kind of vaccine, after which he becomes invulnerable.
What kind of enemy is this so invincible? This, my friends, is Nature, in which every creature or plant for millions of years of evolution (adaptability to changing conditions) has found its place and fulfills its mission.
Gardeners do not call leaf-eating and leaf-sucking insects other than pests. I wonder what to call a predator who caught, say, a sick roe deer on the prairie, ate it and thereby saved the whole herd from infection and the death of the entire livestock? Of course, the orderly predator! And insects? Pests? They have their own role in evolution: diseased plants should not produce offspring.
Most of our garden plants grown according to today's agricultural technology are torn out of the natural biocenosis, and therefore are susceptible to disease. Sick plants, as a rule, contain either a lot of nitrogen or sugars, so they are eaten by nurse insects (for Nature) and pests (for gardeners). If we consider the problem from this point of view, it becomes clear why chemical scientists have not achieved anything for almost a hundred years, and now it is already obvious that they will not achieve anything, because it is impossible to defeat Nature.
So where is the exit, is it really impossible to do anything? There is a way out, friends, but it is in a different direction. It is necessary not to fight with Nature, but to coexist, not to violate biocenoses, but to maintain and strengthen them, using the achievements of science and practice.
This is exactly what happens when using the agricultural technology of natural farming (APA). Such agricultural technology allows, working 2-3 times less, to get 2-3 times larger yields without nitrates and toxins, and with vitamins! Which I wish you all.
