I have followed this thread, very closely, because there is very
little else posted this time of the year. To make these statements
about third world countries, are unfounded and not true. Why don't
you do your research and then repost, with foot notes.
As far as soil deficiency, and food deficiency, I fail to see the
point. If the soil is deficient, then the plant that needs that
nutrient will not grow. If 1 tomato will not give you enough vitamin
A, then eat two and etc.
Sorry, I don't mean to "flame" anyone, but many will read this post
and take it as fact, when it isn't.
I use organic and commercial fertilizer, I also use pesticides and
sometime herbicides, I have lived much of my life on the farm,
including back in the '30s when we raised most of what we eat(believe
me, this is not what you want).
I am sure all the vices will shorten my life span--maybe down to say
90, I will soon be 72, and can still do a pretty good days work. In
the spring I still put in 10 maybe 12 hrs a day on the tractor.
Have a good day, I will--The Old Timer!

This is a subject that easily has 'political overtones.' Like
Do apples vary in nutrional value- depending on how they are grown,
far they are shipped?
I have been making organic soil from mulching for the past several
years. I have
learned to add dolomite-- to keep the sunflowers and corn plants from
when they are fully grown.
