Pressestimmen

"The One-Straw Revolution is one of the founding documents of the alternative food movement, and indispensable to anyone hoping to understand the future of food and agriculture."—Michael Pollan


"Only the ignorant could write off Fukuoka, who died two years ago at the age of 95, as a deluded or nostalgic dreamer...Fukuoka developed ideas that went against the conventional grain....Long before the American Michael Pollan, he was making the connections between intensive agriculture, unhealthy eating habits and a whole destructive economy based on oil." --Harry Eyres, The Financial Times

"Fukuoka's do-nothing approach to farming is not only revolutionary in terms of growing food, but it is also applicable to other aspects of living, (creativity, child-rearing, activism, career, etc.) His holistic message is needed now more than ever as we search for new ways of approaching the environment, our community and life. It is time for us all to join his 'non-movement.'"—Keri Smith author of How to be an Explorer of the World

 

“Japan’s most celebrated alternative farmer...Fukuoka’s vision offers a beacon, a goal, an ideal to strive for.” —Tom Philpott, Grist

 

The One-Straw Revolution shows the critical role of locally based agroecological knowledge in developing sustainable farming systems.” —Sustainable Architecture

 

“With no ploughing, weeding, fertilizers, external compost, pruning or chemicals, his minimalist approach reduces labour time to a fifth of more conventional practices. Yet his success in yields is comparable to more resource-intensive methods…The method is now being widely adopted to vegetate arid areas. His books, such as The One-Straw Revolution, have been inspirational to cultivators the world over.” —New Internationalist

Synopsis

Describes the development and impact of the Japanese scientist-farmer's natural farming methods, paying attention to the system's high agricultural yield and importance as a model for a simpler, more permanent society.

7 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Frank Fremerey am 2. Dezember 2009
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Masunobu Fukuoka zeigt in seinem Buch wie die Landwirtschaft der Zukunft notwendiger Weise aussehen muss: Der Energieinhalt der Brennstoffe, die für die Lebensmittelproduktion eingesetzt werden, muss deutlich niedriger sein als der Energieinhalt der Lebensmittel selbst. Das ist das Hauptproblem der heutigen Agrarwirtschaft und es ist seit langem bekannt, allerdings immer noch nicht allgemein.

Spätere Werke habe den Fukuoka-Terminus "natürliche Landwirtschaft" nicht aufgegriffen, stattdessen spricht man von "Permakultur".

Der Begriff ist nicht so wichtig, entscheidend ist, dass wir unsere Ernährung zukunftssicher machen.

Fukuoka zeigt, wie das gehen kann.

Dass er dabei neben einer praktischen Anleitung auch seine taoistische Philosophie darstellt, die ihn darauf gebracht hat, stört mich nicht.

Dieses Buch muss man gelesen haben.

Frank

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Pomeranze am 7. Juni 2011
Format: Taschenbuch
Wer - so wie die ich anfangs auch - hofft, bei Fukuoka Tricks zur Arbeitsminimierung im Nutzgarten zu finden, könnte enttäuscht werden: Ganz ohne Mühsal geht es auch bei ihm nicht. Es geht darum, zu lernen, vom Garten zu leben, ohne dabei den Lauf der Dinge in der Natur zu stören, sondern indem der Gärtner ihm geschmeidig folgt. Dahin zu kommen, hat aber auch bei Fukuoka viele Jahre gedauert und ihn einige Missernten gekostet. Trotzdem war die Lektüre motivierend und inspirierend. Fukuokas von Taoismus und Zen-Buddhismus gepägte Haltung in Verbindung mit seinen fundierten Kenntnissen als Bauer und Mikrobiologe sind erhellend. Für die Sicht auf den Garten und auf die Welt. Ein paar praktische Tipps gibt er auch, zum Beispiel eine Anleitung zur Herstellung von Lehmpellets zur Verpackung von Saatgut zum Schutz vor Vogelfraß auf den Feldern. Fukuokas Pellets waren übrigens Vorbild für die Saatgut-Bomben heutiger urbaner Guerilla-Gärtner.

Phenomenology or Farming? 7. April 2003
Von J.W.K - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Some have said that the Fukuokan philosophy is the tap root of what is now more broadly called Permaculture, only Masanobu Fukuoka was a Japanese farmer, working with rice and winter grain in a southern Japanese climate. Both are no-till methods that shun the use of chemicals. However, Fukuoka should be set apart from farming in general and Permaculture in particular, in that The One-Straw Revolution is essentially a profound work of literary philosophy. Indeed, in many cases it reads like a naturalist's bible. Although the book is dressed in the language and anecdotes of a farmer, the message looms much larger. We read of a man who came to terms with the problem of death, and then decided to form a profoundly new (or is it old?) relationship with nature. In essence, the nugget of his wisdom is that, instead of struggling to control and command nature, we must learn to work with and learn from nature. Allow me to share one quote:"To build a fortress is wrong from the start. Even though he gives the excuse that it is for the city's defense, the castle is the outcome of the ruling lord's personality, and exerts a coercive force on the surrounding area. Saying he is afraid of attack and that fortification is for the town's protection, the bully stocks up weapons and puts the key in the door." Now I ask you, does the following paragraph sound like the words of a farmer or a philosopher? From the face of it, one might think Fukuoka is here criticizing the nuclear arms race, but he is actually talking about the warlike mindset of farmers who see leaf-munching pests as evil enemies that must be fortified against, sought out and destroyed. Whether we are talking about bull weevils or communities, though, his advice is sound. We must change our frame of reference and establish a different relationship with the world. Concise and yet elegant, Fukuoka's prose is pregnant with meaning. Altogether, this work provides poetic an intelligent critique of industrial agricultural practices and the linear notions of nature and progress that underlay those practices. In fact, Fukuoka goes as far as to declare that the scientific method itself limits our experience and knowledge of nature. An invaluable, timeless work that will move you, even if you have never picked up a hoe.

j.w.k.

Zen and the Art of Farming? 22. Juni 2004
Von David E. Galloway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Masanobu Fukoka was a laboratory agricultural scientist who worked on fighting plant diseases. He also had many unanswered questions about the interrelationship between man and nature. After a long sabbatical he resigned his position and took over his father's rice and mandarin orange farm. Fukuoka thought that by putting the subjects of his questions into actual material challenges he might find the answers he sought.
Fukoka was immediately drawn to organic and natural farming methods, and over the years developed a type of natural farming that he refers to as "do-nothing farming". Contrary to what you may imagine, this method does involve work, much of it menial, but at least in Fukoka's experience the benefits outweight the negatives. His method of farming is thus:
After the seasonal heavy rains, the rice is planted by scattering it by hand throughout the farming area. The planting rice is rolled in a type of clay that will help prevent animals from eating it but will not inhibit sprouting. Clover seeds are also sewn at the same time in the same method. The clover acts as a natural barrier to the young rice shoots, and helps the soil from eroding.
The rice will grow naturally over the course of the next few months without constant pools of water as are often seen in traditional(from 1600-1940s) Japanese rice farming, albeit shorter and stockier than the cultivated rice. After the rice harvest, the leftover straw is scattered over the field to decompose, adding nutrients back into the soil. Afterwards, barley is planted as a winter crop and to further enrich the soil for the next rice season.
Fukoka does not use compost on his rice fields or on his citrus orchard as he finds that the byproducts of the plant provides all the soil nutrients needed. He does maintain a small compost pile for his vegetable garden, however. Outside of the rice season, he tends to his mandarin orange orchard, which is also kept on a "do-nothing" method of growth. From using this technique, he has not only kept up with modern(tractor, fertilizer, pesticide) farmers in quantity, but has a much higher quality of rice, barley, and oranges. He spends very little out of pocket and sells his produce for a very fair price.
The great thing about this short book (192pp) is that it is not exclusively about farming. In fact, there are many pages where Fukoka expands on philosophy, history, nutricion, intentional communities, and sustainibility. There is also an excellent forward by Wendell Berry, one of my favorite authors(Jayber Crow is a must read) Highly reccomended although it seems to be out of print. I borrowed mine from a local library.

A Good Philosophy for Family and Community Based Farming 17. Juni 2001
Von Gregory McMahan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I happened upon a copy of this monumental text while looking for books on soils and agriculture at my local library. As a graduate student in agricultural engineering, Masanobu Fukuoka's book really forced me to think long and hard about the philosophy behind conventional farming. As such, Fukuoka's book is more about philosophy than farming, or better put, the philosophy of natural farming. His short vignettes on various aspects of conventional and natural farming are very enlightening, especially in the face of the emerging Genetic Revolution and the New Biotechnology. Rather than trying to improve upon nature, Fukuoka gives the reader approaches which allow him or her to co-exist with nature. As such, his approach demands one to lead a more subdued, simple, and austere lifestyle. In the book, he tells the reader how he came to embrace his variety of natural farming, which he has termed a do-nothing approach to agriculture, and the worldview that he has developed from his lifelong pursuit of natural farming.
I myself value this text because he correctly points out that your food is your medicine and that those of us who persist in unhealthy diets will as a result become unhealthy. To him, food and farming are opposite sides of the same coin. Some may regard him as being anti-science, but I myself regard him as being critical of relying solely on science and intellect. Granted, while science and intellect serve as good starting points, they also need to be balanced with philosophy/spirituality and the environment. Although this smacks of so-called 'New Age' thinking, many in academia and industry are slowly coming to realize that our single-minded quest for higher yields, minimal cost, maximum return, and larger scale is grossly at odds with a clean environment and sustainable development.
Thus, his approach is not a blueprint for farming for profit so much as it is a guide to farming for well-being- both physical and mental. In sum, as Mr. Fukuoka asks his reader, "Could there be anything better than living simply and taking it easy?"

This is not the future of sustainable food 8. Oktober 2009
Von Harold A. Roth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've been meaning to read this book for a long time. Maybe if I'd read when I was first starting out in organic gardening or became interested in sustainable food production, I would have been as taken with it as the huge number of "absolutely fabulous" reviewers apparently are. The thing is that I came to this book after 25+ years of organic gardening and years of trying various methods of growing various plants sustainably, so pragmatism is coloring my review.

The methods outlined in this book will not be helpful to most people trying to grow food sustainably in North America. I am not talking about the rejection of chemical ferts and pesticides. I am there with him on that totally. I'm not talking about his focus on growing small, either--he discusses growing food sufficient for a family on 1/4 acre, but he is limiting it to grains (he grows veggies in a large citrus orchard). I am talking about the use of nothing but hand tools, the use of straw as a mulch, the focus on growing three grain crops which depend on a frost-free winter, and the use of flooding for irrigation. I think anyone who has made even a stab at growing food in North America on a small scale can see the problems with this. So there's that.

There's also the problem of Mr. Fukuoka's unpaid help. I think it is great for people to go and learn from someone like him, but they work for no pay and live in unheated huts without electricity or running water. In terms of practicality, how many of us are going to have help like that? People seem to not notice this.

Finally, I found Mr. Fukuoka's philosophy of nothing means anything and nothing human beings do makes any difference in the grand scheme of things to be despressing in the extreme.

The central idea--that you can grow sufficient food sustainably in a small plot--makes sense to me, although in my opinion we have not yet arrived at models that are truly flexible and workable. But outside of that idea, this book's value is mostly in the depiction of one guy's struggle to make people think differently about agriculture in Japan.

You'll See The World With New Eyes 10. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book isn't just for farmers or environmentalists. It will open your eyes and make you see the world differently. Suddenly it will become all one world, living and breathing and entirely whole. I bought this book from Mother Earth News years ago and had no idea that just seeing things from this man's point of view would change me so much. I loaned it out to people, and each time the reaction was the same. Everyone was enthralled. I lost my book to someone who never returned it, so someday I'll have to shell out the dough to replace it. It awakens you to a perspective so precious that you don't ever want to risk forgetting it. We're all part of this great being we live on. I wish the entire world could view themselves with the same eyes a person gets upon reading this book. We'd all be transformed.
