India's Agricultural "Revolution"...

...NPR had a story this morning on how India's alleged "revolution" in agriculture is actually leading the country toward an abyss of unsustainable, petro-chemical addicted farming.

Why should Daily Sprawl's non-Indian readers care about what is happening in India?

The answer is simple: it's current problems foreshadow potential agriculture problems here in the U.S. because they are both based on the false hope of petro-chemical farming.

Listen to the NPR story here.

And, while you're at it, rent, buy, or borrow this book: Animal, Vegetable, MiracleIt's one book that, more than just about any other, has changed our way of thinking about how we grow, what we grow, and when we grow. A must-read for Daily Sprawl Readers.
