Is biodynamic farming all hype, or are there merits to this method? Erinn Klein and Ralph Kyte-Powell duel it out, providing the ‘for and against’ of this difficult practice.

I therefore instinctively didn’t entertain the thought of using chemicals to manage weeds, pests or diseases in establishing and running our vineyards and farm.
