Astrology for Plants

Moon behind Lovell The Sunday Times yesterday reported that Prince Charles farms according to the phase of the Moon.  Unfortunately, it seems that you need to register to read the story on their website, but you can hear what Prof. Heinz Wolff has to say on the matter in Radio 4's Broadcasting House, fast forward to about 38 minutes to hear his bit.  He points out that it might sound silly, but there may be something to it.  The Moon does have a measurable physical effect on the Earth (not just tides in the ocean, the land also has tides but they are less easy to measure), but how much of an effect this has on plants is debatable since there are many things in the environment that have much more of an effect.
