Proper programming of fertilizer must be taken into account resulting from the soil test or the refractometer reading of the crop, the effect on soil health or the relationship of such fertilization to insect, disease and weed pressures. TRTC is trialing the use of Compost and Compost Tea for replacing topsoil that have been lost or addicted to using pesticides. Caring for your soil is like entrusting your assets to an investment broker and five years later, noticed that your real net worth (principal) had decreased. You probably would no longer leave your assets with that broker even if he/she claimed he/she was getting record yields.
