Summary

The term 'organic farming' was coined by Lord Northbourne in his canonical work "Look to the Land", published in London (1940). Northbourne introduced the concept of the farm as organism, contrasted organic with chemical farming, and introduced many of the concepts that continue to preoccupy discussions and practice of organic agriculture.
