We were asked by a grower this week, “Why would I use a foliar at this point in the season?” When plants are trying to turn flowers into fruit, fertility availability is essential. OMRI Listed Purple Cow CX-1 (liquid biological) enhances this fertility as plants can take nutrient thru their leaves up to 10x faster […]

A long time organic grower and agronomist (and friend) shared his experiences with calcium levels and the reduction of weed growth after planting. One thing that is necessary is good functioning, highly biological soil. The second necessity […]
