Another farming is possible[Proceedings] by Claude Gruffat

2010-05-31

Claude Gruffat was a pioneer of organic farming in France.

Claude Gruffat was a pioneer of organic farming in France. He relates the genesis of this movement, then details its characteristics and tries to evaluate its future.

Its purpose is to open the way to an alternate model for the development of agriculture, and to demonstrate that is not only an utopia.
