In part written to refute the claim by the Chief of the US Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Soil, Milton Whitney, who claimed that all soils are inexhaustible of the minerals needed to grow crops. In the run-up to the…
What every soil analyst needs to know; a university-level textbook.
Dr. Charles Northen demonstrated that countless human ills stem from the fact that the impoverished soil of America no longer provides plant foods with the mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health! To overcome this alarming condition, he doctors sick soil and, by seeming miracles, raises truly healthy and health-giving fruits and vegetables.

This valuable book went out of print years ago. It was revised and updated in 2013 and republished on the internet by the author.
The book(let) asserts that animal manure is "unclean." Fertilizing with manures produces less nutritious food. The proper way to farm or garden is by remineralizing with rock dusts.
This is the story of how Tiedjens purchased an exhausted Ohio farm and proceeded to rehabilitate it, mostly with aglime.
Continental glaciation spreads fresh, highly mineralized rock dust over temperate regions that by itself causes world-wide climatic changes. Another continental glaciation is both inevitable and imminent unless we significantly remineralize our agricultural soils.
