Revue de presse

Books represent food for the soul and that affirmation is especially valid for those that actually have something to teach us. One particular example could be given by `The One Straw Revolution', one of the most imposing and interesting books written by Masanobu Fukuoka, a true master in the field of natural farming. Many books have been written on this subject but none has managed to reach so many people, bringing new ideas and concepts in our lives, demonstrating clearly the advantages of natural farming. --By Mr. R. Cooke on 30 Oct. 2009

This was the second of 3 books (translated into English) by this amazing Japanese farmer and philosopher. Comparatively little-known here, Fukuoka (RIP) is famous in India, where his techniques are being used to revive desert areas. His keen observations of, and communion with nature, ultimately created, over the years, a natural farming technique requiring no machinery (no ploughing or digging, ever!) or fossil fuel, no chemicals, no prepared compost and very little weeding. Yields are comparable to the most productive farms. Natural farming creates no pollution and the fertility of the fields improves with each season. He calls it "do-nothing farming" but it is more like "do-little" (harvesting is the most laborious part of the year). Here, the author continues his critique of scientific farming practices, explaining why they can never succeed, and of how our belief that we know better than nature inevitably separates us more and more from everything, including ourselves and each other. Fukuoka explains that scientific farming attempts to correct and improve on what it perceives as the shortcomings of nature through human effort. Scientific experiments always take a single subject and apply a number of variable conditions to it while making some prior assumption about the results. Natural farming, however, pushes aside all conditions and, knocking away the precepts from which science operates, strives to find the laws and principles in force at the true source. Unchanging truth can be found only through experiments free of conditions, assumptions, and notions of time and space. When a problem arises, natural farming relentlessly pursues the root causes and strives to correct and restrain human action --By D&D TOP 50 REVIEWER on 17 April 2013

After reading the one straw revolution i really wanted to see how Fukuokas' system worked. I was not disapointed by this well layed out and functional guide to his methods. While his philosophy claims that no list of rules and time tables can acturatelly set out how natural farming should work, the publication of the hystory and methods of his experiment proves vital to the unhinging of common industrial theories on the subject. --By dan

Masanobu Fukuoka expresses theoretical and practical means for switching from traditional to natural agriculture. Basically he writes that a farmer has to study how to furnish the minimum work for producing healthy legumes and fruits. No man but Nature intervenes in the process of production. This principle corresponds to a great change: a farmer is someone that first understands the functioning of “his” productive natural system and secondarily tries to slightly intervene, the less the better, letting the agricultural system be working in harmony with the predisposed natural forces.
The fundamental idea is simple and is an answer to this question: since the origin, biodiversity is increasing on our planet. Nature knows how to do for continuously increasing Earth biodiversity. Thus, it is not true that in a crop field man has to share “bad” and “good” animals, because all animals collaborate for increasing the efficiency of the system, even pest microorganisms. It is better to share bad and good human thoughts. Example of very common bad thought: in a crop field there is food; if we want to have it, we must kill every other living organism that want to consume it. Example of good thought: nature generally increases biodiversity. A farmer has to understand how to go in the same direction and be able to use the natural forces for increasing his yield.
Masanobu Fukuoka procedure required a lot of studies. Some are illustrated in the book. Essentially the general issue is based on well-organised crop successions and very simple operations focusing on soil restoration (quality and organic matter = soil energy).

Fukuoka le génie! correspond à la voie du retour à la nature
révolution d'un seul brin de paille est top
celui-ci relate aussi ses voyages aux USA, en Europe et rapport à Dieux
avec des photos couleurs, des schémas et dessins, plus peut-être techniques que la révolution, mais on y retrouve les mêmes choses.
pas mal de choses se recoupent dans ses 3 bouquins

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book explains how to put the philosophy of One Straw Revolution into practice 23 septembre 2012
Par Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
One Straw Revolution is Fukuoka's farming philosophy thesis and The Natural Way of Farming explains how to put Fukokua's philosophy into practice by detailing each of his farming methods. It explains everything mentioned in One Straw Revolution such as which crops to use as green manure and Fukuoka's recipe for seed balls. While One Straw Revolution reads like a prose Tao Te Ching, The Natural Way of Farming reads like a university science textbook due to its in-depth descriptions of Fukuoka's personal farming research. This is the perfect book to use as a practical followup to One Straw Revolution especially if you are interested in transferring Fukuoka's practices to your garden.

Fukokua has an extensive bibliography but only two of his works are currently published in the United States, One Straw Revolution and Sowing Seeds in the Desert. Therefore, The Natural Way of Farming is shipped from India where it is still being published in English. This book arrived in only four days with an expedited shipping charge of $6.99. It was in pristine condition even after being opened by customs.

The content of the book is great and I highly recommend it (5 stars) since it is the technical version of the author's better known "The One Straw Revolution" (The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (New York Review Books Classics)), but my copy arrived with several blank (non printed) pages, which was a major disappointment, especially if you pay this price for a paper back. The book's PDF may be easily found online but it would have been nice to have a (complete) hard copy. My refund process is on its way and I expect no problem there.

An awesome follow up (For me) from the One Straw Revolution. Trying to figure out the logistics of how and when, this book was the answer. Easy to read, easy to follow, easy to apply to your little bit of the world, good bye conventional farming.

I learned some useful information from this book. Where I live, you can't grow the same things the same way, but I am adapting what I learned to here. Very good book.
