Adding Biology for Soil and Hydroponic Systems
Written by Elaine R. Ingham, Ph.D., and Carole Ann Rollins
Adding Biology for Soil and Hydroponic Systems focuses on adding living biologicals, derived from high-quality actively aerated compost tea solutions, to your gardens.
This paperback book explains how the microscopic communities of plants and animals co-habitate to create compatible nutrient cycling, plant protection and plant growth mechanisms.
Whether you're growing indoors in controlled environments and soilless media or outdoors in soil, this book helps you figure out methods for incorporating biology into your gardens. Guidelines for conventional, sustainable and organic applications are covered.
