A simple application of dry molasses MAY go a long way in cycling the OM and releasing nutrients back into the soil however,, can you justify it as a Summer App. w/out any proof that it is BETTER or even equal to a quarter pound of urea???

Have you been looking as soil structure and tilth??? What can you bring to your client??? Most "Organic Programs" have built in failure and appear to the real world as greenie snake oil...
As a business decision,,, you HAVE TO know what you're doing...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
