Come along and learn about this exciting new field of study
You are invited to attend the Agrohomeopathy Symposium. Agrohomeopathy is an interesting new development in homeopathy. Here are some reasons why you might want to attend the discussions:
we are living in times of climate change and increased pollution with plants and crops being more and more affected, thus affecting the food of animals, humans and their overall general health;
the treatments usually applied in agriculture are in themselves toxic and contribute to increased pollution.
Agrohomeopathy can bring salutary solutions, providing a means to treat plants with low doses of substances with no toxicity and also offering important economic advantages due to low costs, increased yields and a better quality of harvest.
Another important aspect of agrohomeopathy is the prompt response that plants have when treated with homeopathic products, meaning that both farmers and homeopaths have good reasons to use homeopathy in agriculture, as the results can be convincingly: farmers obtain efficient and sustainable results and homeopaths obtain new evidence of the validity of their method.
Specialists in agrohomeopathy have to answer a set of important questions, as the agrohomeopathic method is still developing and needs more clarification, based on latest scientific developments:
which homeopathic products are better to be used and when?
do we need a different Materia Medica and method of case analysis?
are there any particular conditions which show what method to prefer?
which potencies are best and how to choose them?
are there differences between the efficacy of the treatments in the laboratory and in the field?
Let us meet both as speakers, specialists in various domains (agronomists, agrohomeopaths and homeopaths and participants coming from other areas of interest), together with potentially interested participants, who look for the advantages of agrohomeopathy for their business, eg agricultural, safe food production. Participate in this very exciting event and be part of the beginning of the fascinating discipline of AGROHOMEOPATHY in Europe!

EXPOSURE OF ARTEMIA SALINA TO GLYPHOSATE AND BIOREMEDIATION BY ISOTHERAPY: PUTATIVE MECHANISMS INVOLVING ELECTRIC PATTERNS OF WATER

HOLOHOMEOPATHY, SYSTEMIC VISION OF THE APPLICATION OF HOMEOPATHY IN AGRICULTURE
INTRODUCTION: One of the most used bio-indicators of ecotoxicity in laboratory tests is Artemia salina, a microcrustacean belonging to the order Anostraca. Glyphosate is a herbicide widely used to control weeds. However, exposure to low but constant concentrations of this substance is of concern, due to possible environmental disturbances related to its toxicity. At the same time, the treatment of intoxication by isotherapies (high dilutions of a toxic substance or pathogen used to treat individuals exposed to the same agents) is a traditional practice that follows the regulatory standards in Brazil, but its usefulness as a biological remediator is still unknown.
OBJECTIVE: To verify the possible protection of Artemia salina exposed to glyphosate at 10% lethal concentration (LC 10) by the addition of isotherapics in the water, to assess development, behavioral and morphological changes, as well as the physical properties of remedies and treated water, looking for possible mechanisms involved.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The working dilutions of the isotherapics were prepared in pure sterile water from matrices prepared in a registered pharmacy, using samples of glyphosate from the same batch. Then, 0.6g of Artemia salina cysts were kept in culture flasks, with 400 ml artificial seawater containing 0.05% Saccharomyces cerevisiae (for nutrition), following standard control oxygenation, luminosity, and temperature, to promote hatching in 48 hours. The glyphosate LC10 (0.02%) was inserted concomitantly in water, plus 1% isotherapics prepared in pure water or 1% of the respective control. After 48 hours, instars I to V (nauplii) were collected in a Becker, distributed in transparent tubes for behavioral analysis or in glass slides for morphological evaluation, impedance method and droplet evaporation). In a second stage, the cysts hatched and the mobility of the nauplii was recorded on a digital camera, and the images were analyzed using Image J. software. Medicines and samples of filtered sea water were also frozen for later physical-chemical analysis, by means of behaviour of water dipoles in solvatochromic dyes. All the treatments were done blind.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Glyphosate isotherapic, mainly Gly 6cH, had selective effects on the birth and development of nauplii, representing some protective action. This result was dependent on the salinity of the water and corresponds to the effects observed on solvatochromic dyes, since Coumarin 7 was identified as a marker of Gly 6cH. These findings indicate that charges and ions may be important factors involved in the Gly 6cH mechanism of action as a bioremediator.
This paper reports on my approximately seven years of experience with the field application of homeopathic substances. Over the years, I have dealt with various phytopathological problems in different crops and on every occasion, with the use of homeopathic substances, I have solved the problem.
Each time, an agro-ecological analysis of the farm was necessary in order to identify the substance to be used in homeopathic form.

Agrohomeopathy represents an alternative approach to conventional agricultural practices. This seminar aims to highlight the potential of agrohomeopathy, but also to highlight some problems in choosing the correct remedy and its relative potency. In fact, the choice of remedies based on the principles enunciated by Hahnemann does not always give optimal results. The scientific reasons behind the choice of a new specific modality for the agricultural sector will be explained.
Agriculture is among the most important activities for humanity to thrive. However, mainstream agricultural practices stem from Cartesian and mechanistic ontology and have negatively impacted ecosystems, reducing biodiversity and contaminating soil and water with pesticides. On the other hand, Agroecology offers a holistic model of agriculture based on biodiverse interactions and the use of non-toxic products to stimulate ecosystems’ homeostasis. In the last decades, among agroecological methods, one in particular has expanded its relevance amongst farmers and researchers. The use of homeopathy and high-dynamized dilutions in agriculture have been offering results aligned with the demands of society to produce pesticide-free food while preserving the environment. Research indicates that the use of high-dynamized dilutions holds the potential to promote crop vitality through building natural equilibrium and resilience in agricultural systems. In addition, research data is supported by reports from farmers using Agrohomeopathy, verifying the benefits of the method in agriculture. The objective of this work is: a) to introduce the advances and challenges faced in the research on homeopathy and high-dynamized dilutions in agriculture with examples from Brazil; b) to explore the results on how the uses of high-dynamized dilutions can increase the sustainability of commercial strawberry production as well as to understand the nuances of using high-dynamized dilutions in agriculture.

PEST MANAGEMENT OF ERIOSOMA LANIGERUM WITH AGROHOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT
Rindasu I, Stanica F
The objective of the experiment was to evidentiate the effect of the homeopathic nosode obtained from Eriosoma lanigerum (woolly louse), on apple trees attacked by the same pest.
The experiment took place in the USAMV Bucharest didactic orchard, with apple trees being treated with the homeopathic nosode in August and September 2018, a period that overlapped with the second annual maximum of woolly louse populations. The experiment was continued by treating the same trees in the following year, from June till September.
Positive results were recorded in all treated varieties of apple trees from the orchard.

HOLOHOMEOPATHY, SYSTEMIC VISION OF THE APPLICATION OF HOMEOPATHY IN AGRICULTURE
Holohomeopathy is the scientific method of application of homeopathy in agriculture that allows the management of vitality, fertilization, pest and disease control in crops based on the principle of metabolic similarity, a concept developed by Prof. Dr. Radko Tichavsky.
Holohomeopathy, unlike agrohomeopathy (based on the anthropocentric assumption that the effect of homeopathic remedies of humans is the same in plants), proposes the principle of metabolic similarity, a concept that allows us to recognize and even predict the effect of a homeopathic remedy made from a plant, animal, mineral or microorganism in plants.
Plants, but also other living organisms, are related under the principle of metabolic similarity which allows us to recognize that living organisms communicate and interact by means of common biochemical substances: secondary metabolites (in plants), semiochemicals (in animals) and mVOCs in microorganisms, in that the compounds they share and in which they differ establish principles of communication and symbiotic synergy on the one hand, and complementarism or antagonism on the other hand.
Organisms and mineral substances localized in undisturbed natural environments, called attractors, are the source of homeopathic remedies that allow the recovery of fragmented parts of the holon called decubitus.
The lists of metabolic similarity make it possible to recognize and predict which natural resources exist in the holon (understood as a vital unit of coexistence of different living organisms) and to take advantage of these resources located in the attractors as remedies with practically unlimited potential for the elaboration of effective homeopathic preparations to solve problems in the field.
The holohomeopathic method makes it possible to reduce 70% of agricultural production costs, compared to conventional, organic or biodynamic production, control pests and diseases, influence the availability of nutrients for crops, the germination and phenology of crops development, protect economically important plants against the effects of climate change, creating a chain reaction called systemic reaction.
The remedies, prepared in the form of live bionosodes, homeopathic preparations and homeopathic nanopreparations, can be applied by irrigation, spraying or from drones or airplanes with or without adjuvants also of natural origin.
The holohomeopathic intervention process is complemented by crop over-surveillance through remote sensing by means of satellite bands that allow monitoring of vital advances, photosynthetic capacity, soil moisture content in plants, levels of carotenoids, anthocyanins, ozone and other pollutants in the air, change of subsoil characteristics and other vital characteristics in crops.
The holohomeopathic method is a scientific method that allows the application of homeopathy to small, medium and large-scale crops, and is currently used in a wide variety of crops, such as grains (corn, wheat, soybeans, rice), vegetables and fruit trees, in a wide variety of climates (desert, tropical, subtropical and temperate).
