    Looks like a waste of beer. The first one should work if the soil has organic matter the other are just a waste of beer

    A good friend used to tell me: believe half of what you see and none of what you hear, he was a sceptic at best

    I remember writing down some of these formulas many years ago from the PBS telethon fundraisers. :rolleyes:

    So . . . I bought a case of cheap beer and ended up drinking it all myself :drinkup: . . . grass didn't get any. :laugh:

    I don't know what qualifies as organic and what doesn't, but most of those would certainly be beneficial to lawn and plants.
    I hate that they have Jerry Baker specials every spring on PBS, they take live calls and he spews some serious BS. Necrotic Ring Spot is a big problem in this area, I can treat it fairly effectively, but it is a little expensive. He tells people to put baby shampoo on it and it will take care of it:hammerhead: So every yr. I get a couple people who cancel their application of specialty fungicide, and use baby shampoo, then when summer comes and the NRS is going nuts, they call me. :cry: Sorry, too late. We'll have to get it in the spring.

    treating Ophiosphaerella korrae with baby soap, now i know we are all doomed,this crack pot is one of the reasons we all get a couple of idiots that want to try snake oils and WASTE beer, where were from we horse whip BEER WASTERS. and is this a violation of fed laws, to mis lead and mis label. or use in a manner inconsistent with use label requirements. and wheres the science of this potion. let me guess he got it on the "streets as a cop" what BS.

    he cannot even tell the truth about his grandma's lineage, shes no Indian, Indiana is not a native people.
