Why not to use synthetic nitrogen (Miracle Grow)
"A group of scientists at University of Illinois says that research from the Morrow Plots, the oldest research plots in the country, is indicating a decline in soil carbon from the use of synthetic N fertilization. ... Applications of humates will not only increase soil carbon levels, but will improve water retention, drainage, soil tilth and nutrient retention. Humates also provide a healthy substrate for beneficial soil microbes."

Biodynamics: Rudolf Steiner Archives
Biodynamics is the oldest “green” farming movement and focuses on a healthy balance of animals (livestock), crops and wild plants without the use of toxins. Somewhat esoteric, with special preparations and planting, cultivation and harvest schedules based on the moon, planets and constellations.
