The preparations serve to make the soil more accessible and the plant more sensitive to the extraterrestrial forces working on nature. A distinction ought to be made between preparations for soil and crop treatment and the compost preparations. (1) The cow manure preparation (preparation 500). This is prepared from fresh cow manure which is placed in the autumn in a (preferably fresh) cowhorn and kept underground until the following spring. The cowhorn serves as a protective enve- lope for the processes which work in the soil during the winter.

According to this perspective, the aim of manuring is not the direct administration of nutrients to the plant, but the support and intensification of the life processes of the soil so as to ensure the optimum growth of the plants. In the latter case, the cooperation of plant and soil determines the manner and extent in which the nutritive relationship between both progresses. Due to this perspective the use of mineral fertilisers prepared by chemical processes, particularly synthetically prepared nitrogen, is rejected by proponents of the biodynamic method because the cooperation between soil and plant is thus worsened.

A) The use of natural substances prepared with the aid of natural processes. The preparations serve to make the soil more accessible and the plant more sensitive to the extraterrestrial forces working on nature.
