Homeopathy, Agriculture and The Environment: first international conference

Nov 08, 2023

The first international conference for Homeopathy, Agriculture and The Environment, co-organised with the second Agro-homeopathy Symposium, will be held  online on 4 and 5 December, jointly organised by Abhama, the Brazilian Association of Homeopathy in Agriculture and the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH). 

The programme for the event has been developed by an international multidisciplinary network with collaborators from South America and Europe. Lectures and round-table discussions will explore the potential of homeopathy in agriculture and the environment, and its role in supporting sustainable farming systems and resilient environments.  

Agro-homeopathy is an emerging discipline that uses substances at ultrahigh dilutions in agriculture. Adopted by some farmers in Europe, particularly in Italy, the systemic agro-homeopathic approach offers options that 'are safe for farmers and have no ecological side effects'; it has potential as an ecological alternative to improve the health status of plants. Two recent studies confirm this potential:

  • One study from Brazil assessed the impact of homeopathic preparations Sulphur 30CH and Calcarea carbonica 30CH, on Capsicum sweet pepper crops grown in a greenhouse or in the field. Sulphur was found to improve plant growth and fruit size in the field, whilst Calcarea carbonica affected greenhouse plant height. Although pests were present for all treated plants, the homeopathic preparations appeared to enhance plant growth and recovery after damage. Calcarea carbonica also showed promise in reducing fungal decay of sweet pepper fruits. This study highlights the potential for homeopathy to increase productivity and resilience of food crops grown in different horticultural environments.
  • In another study, all treatments favourably influenced the response variables during germination, emergence and vegetative development of  the turnip (Brassica napus L.), suggesting that agricultural homeopathy has potential in horticulture.

 Registration for the conference is free of charge till 3 December.
