Abstract:

In less than fifty years agriculture has been transformed by synthetic chemicals which have had a serious impact on the environment and on the health of farm families. This film tells the story of two farmers. Herbert Smith championed the new miracle sprays of the 50's in his orange grove in Florida, while 20 years later, Fred Kirschenmann of North Dakota, steered his land through the transition to organic farming to prove that sustainable organic agriculture is a viable economic alternative for any size farm.
