For & against: biodynamics

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 grew up with biodynamics in our backyard gardens in Germany and later on our farms in Australia. I have never known any other way. 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.
