The possibility of them interfering with each other is almost 100%.

I agree with the last statement. We have been analyzing this product for over a year. It shows promise. I like the way they are positioning it as a bridge product that can reduce other chemicals being used and not a cure all. We are going to try it in a bigger way this year. Did some tests last fall that looked good.

Thanks again,,, I evidently confused myself looking over a number of different articles and got the notion that Holganix stabilizes N in it useable form,,, but now I can't find that information...

That sounds like Agrotain all the way...

This BTW, is why I like the intelligent discussion of the forum...
