Agriculture and weeds.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

Weeds are an integral part of nature and the soil so their elimination in agriculture is not the solution to the difficulties they cause. Instead of continuing to resort to chemical herbicides that are detrimental to the soil we should be looking for ways to incorporate the green manure that is weeds into the soil as would normally occur naturally. If, as a consequence, land productivity plateaus we will have to find more land or regenerate infertile land biologically. We have to get our priorities right: there is no point in trying to improve agricultural production whilst simultaneously misusing prime agricultural land as we do.
