The Fight In Biodynamic Gardening


Life is like a jungle wherein all sorts and sizes of creatures constantly struggle and enter into a fight so as to obtain basic needs and leisurely pleasures. No matter what people say its always about getting the edge and getting on top of the game. A longstanding part of existence is pushing all cylinders of efforts in order to achieve whatever degree of happiness is aspired. With this in mind lets take a glimpse of how biodynamic gardening and farming strives to keep crops free from all sorts of destructive elements.

Biodynamic principles have a concept of establishing a well-balanced and healthy field for organisms in order to avoid environmental mishaps from occurring. One very common problem that these techniques continue to battle is the development of pest population. This is where pest control comes into the picture.

In general pest control is referred to as the management and regulation of certain entities that are tagged as pests for the reason that they can be perceived as a threat that can hinder the normal functioning of any creatures system as well as this creatures interaction with the ecosystem. As far as agriculture is concerned, ever since plant cultivation started to gain popularity in communities the need to ensure freedom of crops from pests has been a priority. It became a must for people to protect plants from competing species as well as maintain standards of crop cultivation so that food demands can always be met.

Throughout history there have been countless efforts employed by man in order to fend off coercive pests from destroying the normal flow of crop production. A very common method used is the elimination of breeding grounds. This entails proper waste management and drainage of still water.

Garbage provides an avenue that can support unwanted organisms especially in aspects of sustenance and reservoir. Areas with unmanaged still waters are very prone for pestering acts of mosquitoes. Open air sewers are also adequate to harbor the existence of various pests. Therefore in order to minimize the risks posed by such pests communities must be well aware in targeting problem areas and their management.

A traditional method of pest control is through the usage of poisoned bait. This is specifically used for the elimination of rat populations. In the old times poisoned meats were utilized in order to eradicate wolves and birds that continually feast on crops and livestock. Burning is another method particularly during the post harvest period of sugar canes. This is performed in order to make sure that the field is cleared of insects and eggs.

In European countries when the number of stray cats and dogs reach a high the local folks come together and gather all the animals that dont have any owners. Unfortunately these animals are killed. In other areas around the globe teams of rat catchers are formed and tasked to chase and kill these pests using simple hand tools and the services of dogs. There is also a practice wherein the town clerk set a certain monetary reward for every rat head brought.

Although the conventional practices were quite crude as compared to the modern ways of biodynamic gardening and farming it is done in order to achieve a single common goal. This is to ensure that plant growth and development are not interrupted. Thus food supplies and livestock quality are not compromised.
