With the recent republication of Dr. Maynard Murray’s Sea Energy Agriculture, readers rediscovered the forgotten legacy of an eco-ag pioneer. Murray’s idea — that ocean water contains a concentrated, perfect balance of trace minerals in bioavailable form — seems almost as revolutionary today as when he introduced it three decades ago.
In this fascinating book, Charles Walters examines Murray’s career and the amazing successes that growers experience with his methods, as well as further developments in this technology by creative experimenters. Using hard data obtained in the field, Walters demonstrates that sea-solids fertilizer produce stress-resistant plants and food with naturally extended shelf life and vastly increased nutrient levels. Both an amazing narrative and a practical guide for improving soil and crop health, Fertility from the Ocean Deep is a must-read for everyone interested in the cutting edge of sustainable agriculture.
