But I think that is the point Smith is making: the foundation of biodynamics is false and needs to be thrown out. If the results of biodynamics is more footprints in the vineyard, then growers should focus on the questions of why that is important and look for efficiencies in those steps rather than adopt the approach of "that's just how it's done." Isn't that what real science is about?
