Sea Energy Agriculture recounts Murray's experiments and presents his astounding conclusions. The work of this eco-pioneer was largely ignored during his lifetime, and his book became a lost classic —out-of-print for more than 25 years. Now this rare volume is once again available, with a new foreword and afterword by the founder of Acres U.S.A., Charles Walters.
Maynard Murray was a medical doctor who researched the crucial importance of minerals —especially trace elements— to plants and animals. Beginning in 1938 and continuing through the 1950s, Dr. Murray used sea solids —mineral salts remaining after water is evaporated from ocean water— as fertilizer on a variety of vegetables, fruits and grains. His extensive experiments demonstrated repeatedly and conclusively that plants fertilized with sea solids and animals fed sea-solid-fertilized feeds grow stronger and more resistant to disease.
