Brix Test Has Meaning
|Earthworms and Soil Fertility|
|Earthworm populations of
10 per square foot can add 55 pounds of N (nitrogen), 64 pounds of P
(phosphorus), 105 pounds of K (potassium), and 38 pounds of calcium (CA)
yearly, per acre. Earthworm castings have 7 times more P, 11 times more K
and up to 3 times more CA than the soil residue they consume! That's FREE
fertilizer that you can take advantage of by providing favorable conditions
|Antibiotic Soil Life|
|Healthy soil has
beneficial microbes that actually protect your crops from disease. Soil
microbes of the various bacillus families, streptomyces, pencillium, etc.,
all produce secretions that kill or suppress harmful fungi, molds, and
pathogenic bacteria. Some bacillus produce a substance called Phytoalexin
that not only helps control disease, but nematodes too.
|Why Foliar Feed?|
|Foliar feeding, or
topdressing, with the correct nutrients can be the most effective method of
feeding a plant since 95% of a fertilizer solution can be found in the
smallest root within 60 minutes. Foliar spraying should be done in the
evening or early morning when the plant's stomata (pores) are open.
Foliar spraying of the best selected materials, at the proper stage of growth and at the proper time, has proven to be a very profitable way to apply fertilizer solutions.
|Did you know?|
|Research shows that only
10-30% of a crop's requirements come from fertilizer applications! The rest
comes from the soil's ability to feed the crop. Build a humus rich soil
teaming with biological life and your crops will thrive.
