Front Cover
Joshua Books, 2014 - Agriculture - 440 pages
Farm Wars describes the pioneering efforts of a farmer who spent many years battling for the recognition and use of geoponic sustainable methods of agriculture. This method of agriculture is opposed to carcinogenic synthesised chemical poisoning of food crops, with long term health disabling consequences. His writing is an expose of the food industry and what happens on the farms behind the supermarket shelves, by the unconscionable chemical manufacturers who receive corrupt political support. the author was amongst the first to introduce a fully integrated system of grain bulk-handling. Bulk grain harvesting, storage, handling and private marketing have now encompassed the world wheat industry.

I recently bought this book and can't put it down. My husband and I are farmers in bottom of Riverina and had enough of the whole agricultural drive by corporations and started going down the biological path the last few years with lots of visits by our bio company and Martaan Stapper. Getting results. We have found Colin's book an inspiration to realise we see and understand his way of thinking in a number of his issues. His insight into a lot of these agricultural monopolies and government is so honest and told well. NFF and state farming organisations are just as he states. NFF is spineless as he states and we fully agree. His ideas are well worth reading. Love it Colin we needed more like you fighting and standing up for us in Australia. As you said we have bred a lot in the industry that are pacifist and lost a log of fight in the dog. Brilliant book a must read especially by all farmers.
