Biodynamic (BD) farming is a school of organic farming that integrates observations of lunar, planetary and stellar influences on crop cultivation (and animal husbandry) and uses soil and plant applications of preparations based on minerals, plants and animal parts. In Europe, in particularly in Germany, the brand name Demeter under which certified biodynamic produce is marketed, is recognized for signifying high quality.

For more information on biodynamic farming and its background, the website of the Biodynamic Association of India (BDAI) and related websites are suggested:
