I was pleased the other day to discover his website http://soilminerals.com/ and his blog http://thenewagriculture.blogspot.com/. It was that avatar that appears on his blog that made me make the connection. That graphic appears on the thread "Hacking the Genetic Mind."
On his website he has an article in the form of an interview called "Better than Organic - a Conversation with Agricola". I'm assuming "Agricola" is a literary device - it being the Latin word for "farmer" and the fact that in his FAQ he says that Agricola prefers to remain anonymous. Anyway, this article shows what a superb researcher asteram/Michael Astera is!
I'm not a gardener myself, but I love reading about what we need to do to grow nutritious food. He's showing that we can't just rely on humus, composting, and manure.
