Solutions for Plant Nutrient Deficiencies

Plants just like people need necessary nutrients to live. Without the proper amount of nutrients, plants suffer. Here is a list of common nutrients, signs of nutrient deficiencies and what to give to make the plant healthy.

pH 

Before we jump into nutrients, we need to talk about an essential factor, pH. pH or power of hydronium (H30+) is a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions in a liquid. Plants absorb nutrients with charges on them since hydrogen has a positive charge, pH can change how plants absorb nutrients. You may want to check your soil pH to see how it is affecting your plants. For hydroponic systems, the pH can be changed by adding salts to the system. Control Complete Nutrients. Deficiencies of Magnesium and I

Keeping Plants Cool for the Summer

You might love a warm summer, but heat is a big problem for plants. It dries out plants and causes them to slow down photosynthesis. Luckily, plants have adapted to heat, and there are things we can do to help them. Fun Fact: Plants get most of their weight from the air. Air is where plants get carbon to make sugar and make cellulose.

Plants on a hot day

To get essential nutrients from the air like oxygen and carbon plants have stomata. Stomata are like noses for the plants, allowing them to breathe. Plants can open and close stomata depending on how much carbon they need. The problem with keeping stomata always open is that the plant loses water when the stomata are open. Plants are continually trading water for carbon. The hormone that closes stomata and tells the plant that there is a drought is abscisic acid. Abscisic acid also sl

How to Increase Yields While Doing Your Part to Protect the Environment

Do you want a side of heavy metals in your fertilizer? How about dead fish from applying too many nutrients? We use fertilizers to grow plants at NO expense to the environment. Heavy metals are in some fertilizers, and we overuse synthetic fertilizers, wasting them which leads to agriculture run-off. Organic and conventional agriculture methods cannot address these methods. New tools including a new type of fertilizer can help solve these environmental problems while increasing yields.
