My Friends,

The future is very much unstable at best! The Hopi Indians, wise as they are, said: "Know your Garden"!

There are 16 elements essential to growth of plants:

  • Supplied by air and water:
    • Carbon (C)
    • Hydrogen (H)
    • Oxygen (O)
  • Macronutrients:
    • Nitrogen (N)
    • Phosphorous (P)
    • Potassium (K)
  • Secondary Nutrients:
    • Calcium (Ca)
    • Magnesium (Mg)
    • Sulfur (S)
  • Micronutrients:
    • Boron (B)
    • Chlorine (Cl)
    • Copper (Cu)
    • Iron (Fe)
    • Manganese (Mn)
    • Molybdenum (Mo)
    • Zinc (Zn)

 

You can buy two types of Nutrient Solutions:

  1. Dry.
  2. Liquid.

 

Some nutrients can stop other nutrients from being accessible to the plants! This is referred to as: Inhibiting the Plants Up-take. Methods of Mixing and supplying the nutrients are necessary!

 

For Blooming and Fruiting Plants, normally more Phosphorous (P) and  Potassium (K).  More Nitrogen (N), for Green Leaves. But, all 16 Nutrients are needed! All 16 Nutrients are important!

There are different methods of buying and mixing nutrients, Buy Solid and use Solid, this is cheaper normally:

 

Don't forget, there may be Nutrient Deficiencies:

 

Water Replacement, your Water will not last forever. Aeroponics Systems are around 95% Water efficient compared to other Growing methods, however, you will need to replace your water, or do Reverse Osmosis on the Water at the very minimum.

 

The Diet we have, each one of us, is lacking! We have food that is not all that good for us and we eat it in the hopes to feel better, but this is not enough!

Best wishes, stay safe and well My Friends,

Chris,

Boron is an essential nutrient that appears to be lacking in our farm-grown fruits and vegetables. Evidently, the green-up formulas (salts) sprayed on crops cause the plants to reduce Boron's uptake. An apple a century ago would have 1000+ % more Boron than today.

An Australian doctor found that giving his Arthritis patients Sodium TetraBorate (BORAX) cured the majority. At the advent of this great discovery the Aussicrats rushed to have it banned due to some study suggesting that consumption of Borax might affect the fertility of young males. This, of course, was to placate Big Pharma. Borax is abundant, very inexpensive and is less toxic than table salt.

One has to question the sanity/motive of this ban, since the vast majority of arthritis sufferers are the elderly ... fertility concerns?

Hey Augenblick,

Thank You for sharing your experience!

You are right, I agree, most fruit and veg we eat is lacking in essential Nutrients more now that ever before! We simply are not getting what we need in our diets! Agenda 21 and the Thread State of the Race I touch on this, its part of their sick plan.

I think that's why its so important we take control of what we can now!

 

As soon as a vegetable or a fruit is picked it starts deteriorating. There is a nutrient loss that is happening every day. 

So you're buying a bag of spinach that was grown in California and was picked and sitting in cold storage and then washed and dried and and sitting in cold storage some more and then sent to a packer to put into those cellophane bags and sealed and then in cold storage again and then gone on a truck or a train come across the United States and goes into a distribution center and sits some more and each day there's this nutrient loss.

 

This statement is dire! Its very worrying! Ever wonder why we feel tired all the time? Well our diet is partly to blame! We eat food that does not have the right amount of what our Bodies need!

 

My name's Troy Albright I'm actually a licensed pharmacist as I've done consult on my patients I realize it starts with the food they're putting in their body.

 

We need to get smart about our Future, here is Troy again, with more advice:

 

I'm a registered pharmacist as well as a pharmacist. I love farming as well love food. When I look at as a pharmacist as I've done my consults on my patients, I realized that it goes back to nutrition. We have this foundation and it has all these cracks in it because we're not eating this diet that has any type of nutritional value! When it comes to some of the produce that we're getting, land is over farmed so it's missing a lot of the minerals and nutrients.

 

I agree, you are wise Augenblick, we as a species need to wake up and fix the problems we have! Education then Technology, we have what we need, we only need to implement. I hope you find a solution for the lack of Boron Up-Take!

Best wishes stay safe and well My Friend,

My Friends,

For those wanting to learn more, I have seen a very good page, that I would like to quote here:

Nitrogen (N)

Nitrogen is a key element in plant growth. It is found in all plant cells, in plant proteins and hormones, and in chlorophyll.

Atmospheric nitrogen is a source of soil nitrogen. Some plants such as legumes fix atmospheric nitrogen in their roots; otherwise fertiliser factories use nitrogen from the air to make ammonium sulfate, ammonium nitrate and urea. When applied to soil, nitrogen is converted to mineral form, nitrate, so that plants can take it up.

Soils high in organic matter such as chocolate soils are generally higher in nitrogen than podzolic soils. Nitrate is easily leached out of soil by heavy rain, resulting in soil acidification. You need to apply nitrogen in small amounts often so that plants use all of it, or in organic form such as composted manure, so that leaching is reduced.

 

Phosphorus (P)

Phosphorus helps transfer energy from sunlight to plants, stimulates early root and plant growth, and hastens maturity.

Very few Australian soils have enough phosphorus for sustained crop and pasture production and the North Coast is no exception. The most common phosphorus source on the North Coast is superphosphate, made from rock phosphate and sulfuric acid. All manures contain phosphorus; manure from grain-fed animals is a particularly rich source.

 

Potassium (K)

Potassium increases vigour and disease resistance of plants, helps form and move starches, sugars and oils in plants, and can improve fruit quality.

Potassium is low or deficient on many of the sandier soils of the North Coast. Also, heavy potassium removal can occur on soils used for intensive grazing and intensive horticultural crops (such as bananas and custard apples).

Muriate of potash and sulfate of potash are the most common sources of potassium.

 

Calcium (Ca)

Calcium is essential for root health, growth of new roots and root hairs, and the development of leaves. It is generally in short supply in the North Coast's acid soils. Lime, gypsum, dolomite and superphosphate (a mixture of calcium phosphate and calcium sulfate) all supply calcium. Lime is the cheapest and most suitable option for the North Coast; dolomite is useful for magnesium and calcium deficiencies, but if used over a long period will unbalance the calcium/magnesium ratio. Superphosphate is useful where calcium and phosphorus are needed.

 

Magnesium (Mg)

Magnesium is a key component of chlorophyll, the green colouring material of plants, and is vital for photosynthesis (the conversion of the sun's energy to food for the plant). Deficiencies occur mainly on sandy acid soils in high rainfall areas, especially if used for intensive horticulture or dairying. Heavy applications of potassium in fertilisers can also produce magnesium deficiency, so banana growers need to watch magnesium levels because bananas are big potassium users.

Magnesium deficiency can be overcome with dolomite (a mixed magnesium-calcium carbonate), magnesite (magnesium oxide) or epsom salts (magnesium sulfate).

 

Sulfur (S)

Sulfur is a constituent of amino acids in plant proteins and is involved in energy-producing processes in plants. It is responsible for many flavour and odour compounds in plants such as the aroma of onions and cabbage.

Sulfur deficiency is not a problem in soils high in organic matter, but it leaches easily. On the North Coast seaspray is a major source of atmospheric sulfur. Superphosphate, gypsum, elemental sulfur and sulfate of ammonia are the main fertiliser sources.

 

Trace elements

 

Iron (Fe)

Iron is a constituent of many compounds that regulate and promote growth and is readily available in the North Coast's acid soils. Manganese (Mn) Manganese helps with photosynthesis. It is freely available in the North Coast's acid soils, often in toxic amounts in very acid soils, but can be deficient in sandy soils. Toxicity is remedied with lime.

 

Copper (Cu)

Copper is an essential constituent of enzymes in plants and is readily available in North Coast soils, although it can be deficient in  red soils. Overuse of another trace element, molybdenum, can cause copper deficiency in animals. Toxicity can be a problem for horticulturists who regularly use Bordeaux mixture or copper oxychloride sprays to control diseases on horticultural crops.

 

Zinc (Zn)

Zinc helps in the production of a plant hormone responsible for stem elongation and leaf expansion. It is readily available in acid soils, but combines easily with iron in the North Coast's red soils. This is easily cured with the addition of zinc sulfate or crushed zinc minerals. Fruit trees can be sprayed with zinc.

 

Boron (B)

Boron helps with the formation of cell walls in rapidly growing tissue. Deficiency reduces the uptake of calcium and inhibits the plant's ability to use it. It is chronically deficient in North Coast soils used for horticulture but this is easily remedied with borax applied to the soil.

 

Molybdenum (Mo)

Molybdenum helps bacteria and soil organisms convert nitrogen in the air to soluble nitrogen compounds in the soil, so is particularly needed by legumes. It is also essential in the formation of proteins from soluble nitrogen compounds.

 

Molybdenum deficiency is prevalent in the North Coast's acid soils, but can be remedied easily with applications of Mo super, molybdenum trioxide (applied during inoculation and lime pelleting of legume seed), or sodium molybdate (sprayed on young emerging plants).

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
