    Scientists need to stop playing g-d because they are jealous of doctors. ;)

    A response to this "new technology"

    I'm sure this is the response that would be given to injecting microbes into poor soil. Microbes occur naturally in healthy soil. Adding them to poor soils (deplected, uncared for soils) is merely a scheme to avoid the work (or joy) of building soils to good health. Poor soils do not have the basis to sustain the injected microbes and the injections would of necessity be periodic (yearly?), much the same as fertilizer.

    For 3 years I have been turning zone 1 from hard pan clay to something useable & as I watch the land transform I can't help but look at my neighbors farms around here and wonder... ..why no cover crops? Feeding the soil feeds the farmer & community.

    It's because of that I share this link I found.

    I've actually enjoyed using Peaceful Valley Farms for products. Seems like they were once called by another name back in the 1990s, but I could be wrong. They were a great wholesale supplier for my vermiculite for potting soils and non-preservative Hydrogen Peroxide. I believe they also carried microbes and such but I never purchased any of them. Coco Coir was another product, but I'm not sure they have it anymore
