Thesis
Full-text available
The combined impacts of climate change, soil erosion, deforestation, pollution, population growth and resource depletion require urgent attention in instituting regenerative agricultural practices worldwide. This is particularly the case in NW Europe where the current farming paradigm is becoming obsolete due to pressures from many fronts. A new wa...

Project
Quantum Agricultural Research is the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the non-material world in relation to agriculture, through observation, communication and experiment. It draws on the science of quantum mechanics as a means to this end, and is not a farming system in itself but superimposes a non-material dimension to existing sustainable farming systems. It supposes nature as sentient, and aims to draw from, explore and explain both indigenous and biodynamic practice, as well as developing new knowledge and practice.
Project
The primary aim of this research is to review and explore the potential of adopting ‘quantum-based agriculture’ techniques as part of the necessary transition towards implementing new and regenerative farming systems worldwide. ‘Quantum-based agriculture’ is defined in this proposal as the umbrella term for any agricultural practices aligned with principles of wave-based quantum theory and derived from either historical knowledge or contemporary research. It is proposed that a balanced consideration of such practices in agriculture has now become necessary to present step-change to the dominant mind set prevalent over the last two centuries that has employed a particle-based application almost exclusively reliant on the materialistic sciences of chemistry, biology and Newtonian physics. Whilst potentially applicable to both industrial and organic agriculture, this step change is likely to be most compatible with current organic, agroecological and biodynamic farming systems. In order to achieve the above, this research will review the existing knowledge base ‘quantum-based agriculture’ document the extent of its current practice worldwide, in both academic and practitioner domains. In doing so it will need to consider major influencing factors including epistemology, appropriate research methods, knowledge and innovation networks, and barriers to their further uptake. The main research questions to be addressed in the project are: 1) What are the most promising areas and results of ‘quantum-based agriculture’ from current research and historical practices which could possibly now be adopted on a broad scale? 2) What has been the extent and reception in mainstream academic coverage of ‘quantum-based agriculture’ practices in recent times? 3) What are the barriers and possible mitigating solutions to implementing ‘quantum-based agriculture’ practices worldwide at the present time? 4) What is the effect of human intent and belief systems on the efficacy of ‘quantum-based agriculture’ practices in light of recent discoveries in cutting edge quantum research?
