    Try using the the series of ground grain meals. It is good for feeding the microbes and fertilizing the ground and eventually becomes compost itself.

    A cheap source would be to try miconized humate products. According to Dr. Michael Karr, As little as 3lbs of micronized humate per acre will provide a significant benefit. I can tell a definate improvment in greeness at that rate but I prefer to use a little more. You can look here, www.humates.com for a source of the micronized humate. There are other sources as well, I just dont have their web links to post.

    We haven't seen you in a while

    I agree with you small amounts are better

    Humates are definately a great tool in the arsenal

    Hello Bill,
    I messed around and bought an RF converter for my laptop and have been watching way to many movies during the week at the motel, and working like a dog on weekends at home.

    Thanks for the post. I have always been familiar humus as organic residue in the soil, but I never realized that it had been deposited in the earth at one time.
    Think I will give that a try. :)
