Summary

The DOK trial has started in the 1970ies, when first reports warned us on the consequences of our actions and the limits to growth. Even though farmers and a huge research community know better, we are still not managing our soils in a sustainable way. It seems inevitable that the mainstream agriculture wants to go beyond natural frontiers. Soils have an enormous buffering capacity, but this ends, when ecosystems are collapsing not only at the local, but also at the global level.
