This is true .... look at how many times I have posted that list of studies and you still spout off your nonsense.

What do you expect when you keep posting your nonsense? How about you do some research before you post so you can actually contribute something worthwhile instead of the same old uniformed crap. Wouldn't that be nice for a change? One thing for certain .... there is no shortage of people on this website who like to pretend they are an authority on subjects they have little understanding of.

Kiril, yes or no... do microbes use the same ions that are found in synthetic fertilizers?

It is not a yes or no question.

It is real difficult to convince a HO that synthetics are 'bad', when they have been used to grow outstanding crops and bright green beautiful lawns for just a couple of bucks, for over 70 years. However one thing that really IS 'bad' is using way too much...

I don't believe it is necessary to tell the client that he may have only 86 microbes/unit of soil instead of a 100. Talk about discreditting yourself as a goofball. We had interviewed a number of different 'tree pros', a few years ago, and everyone still mocks the enviro whacko, who was making major issues out of minor details...

If you are building up salt reserves in your lawns, then stop and explain it. If nothing is really happening, then don't pretend that it is... People want an LCO with integrity, not some shuckster with a 'plan for you...'

Only discuss REAL issues that are obviously effecting their lawns and habitats...

As already stated, a straw man argument, and I have no interest in playing your childish games. Soil fertility is far more complex than your ignorant yes/no question. If you actually knew what you were talking about you would never use such a lame question/tactic as a means to defend your uninformed position.
