A careful and scrupulous observation of moon calendar may allow farmers or individuals engaged in gardening , to stop using as many fertilizers and chemicals, or to do without it altogether, despite the skepticism of some researchers whose number decreases elsewhere, depending on the progress of the decay of the environment that we experience all.
less chemistry for a better future
In any case, it seems that lunar light penetrates deeper into the soil, compared to direct sunlight, which would have a decisive influence on, inter alia, the germination process of seeds. Whatever institutional scientists think, the fact is that many farmers, and for a very long time, believe in leading role of our satellite on agricultural practices and plant development.
traditional farming has always used the lunar calendar
Especially with regard to the circulation of the sap, which is, like all liquids on the planet, subject to the strong gravitational force of our moon. Another aspect on which the Moon should logically have an influence refers to the photoperiod , that is to say the ratio between the duration of the day and that of the night, it is the seasonal biological clock of the living, that which dictates to the bear when it is time to go to sleep for hibernate, or the dormant buds of certain species, which causes a slowdown in the rhythm of the plant.
photoperiodism, the clock of the living
In general, the growing moon is considered to favor the plant development of plants when the sap rises to the surface. This is the time when it is advisable to harvest the vegetables, and where the growth of the plants reaches its paroxysm. When the moon is decreasing, the vital substances of plants tend to retreat into the root system, a time when the soil is fertile, like animals or humans when they are ovulating. It is the time of sowing, and the period of development of the roots.
