This is the classic example for demonstrating the mindset of "Products" vs. "Soil Building"...

It should be noted that different organic apps, of different things, at different times, in different soils, will make the same results...

Do I want to apply humates to sandy soils that are weak in the OM dept.???
Do I need CT or bacterias added to a soil that has excellent soil structure with the premium Textural Blend???
Do I need AM Fungi for lawns over 3 years old???

In what state of affairs would you apply bone meal, or Green Tea to a lawn???

If Organics is all about * SOILS *, then why does soil Texture and Structure, NOT matter when considering the products to be used???

Organic applications BUILD the soil, but it doesn't seem to be understood HOW that happens and HOW to understand what you're starting with and WHAT is required to make the desired changes...
How do you say this is better than synthetics???
Its not, in fact it can become silly, especially when no results are noticeable... Think about it!!!

This post should only be offensive to those who refuse to acknowledge the importance of "Understanding' what constitutes the building of soils or even benefitting the roots...
If the OP is interested in understanding which products, for which conditions, then he'd have something to offer the NEWBIES...

Let's see if the discussion takes place or the bashing diverts it all again, or maybe there will be thousands of urls tossed out there that has answers, becuz people who can't answer,,, themselves, still feel the need to patricipate in the dilution of the idea,,, and a bunch or urls looks so intelligent...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
