Organic Resistance

As state efforts at agricultural industrialization increased, the network of organic farming continued to expand and the first national organic organizations were established. As the movement grew, however, it also splintered. Raoul Lemaire and André Louis moved in different directions and gave rise to two separate national organizations: the Association française d'agriculture biologique (AFAB) and Nature et Progrès. Under Lemaire, organic farming was commercialized through the Lemaire-Boucher Method, while Louis appealed more to anti-capitalist leftists, like Pierre Rabhi, who were beginning to move back to the land.
