About the author (1981)

The Rodale Press of Emmaus, Pennsylvania, has been a major proponent of alternative agricultural systems in the United States. Founded by Jerome Irving Rodale in 1942, the Rodale Press has carried the message that environmental quality and human health depend on the adoption of "organic" agricultural techniques that do not rely on the use of synthetic chemicals for pest control or heavy use of fertilizers for increasing crop yields. Robert David Rodale, the son of J. I. Rodale, became head of Rodale Press in 1971 and campaigned vigorously for the adoption of organic agricultural techniques. Under Robert Rodale's guidance, research conducted by the Rodale Research Center has been widely disseminated in Organic Gardening and The New Farmer, two publications of the Rodale Press. Publication of this research not only has spread the practice of organic agriculture but also has helped build a political consensus for changing the course of public policy and research priorities in agriculture. Robert Rodale died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident while visiting Moscow in September 1990. He was in Russia to promote a Russian-language edition of The New Farmer.
