    Yeasts – a farmer's natural friend

    Is it possible that yeast, i.e. microorganisms well-known in the baking, brewing and alcohol-distilling industries, could be a poison? Indeed, they can; and this poison may be very useful in farming. This has been proven, for the first time in Poland and Europe, by Professor Urszula Wachowska, PhD. at the University of Warmia and Mazury (UWM).
