So, locally there are guys applying liquid fertilizer on their corn and beans, instead of spreading fertilizer as granular type in spring before seeding.
I want to copy that idea, but use it for vegetable crops...
Does anyone think this would work? Are there any outstanding issues you see?
One issue I see is burning seedlings with improperly mixed product (too concentrated/too weak???)
Another possibility if fertilizer is too harmful to the plants, is I can make the plants "tea" made by steeping manure in a burlap sack much like regular tea... My grandpa used to do this for his plants.
I use and can hook you up with Natural and Organic Liquid Fertilizer. (We all should know Chemical Fertilizer isn't good for the soil/environment)
I'm here to answer any all questions or anyone can PM me.
And yes, you must do proper mixing, just like you would do proper "Spreading" of the chemical fertilizer. Too much can burn, and too little is a waste of your time.
With any and all changes to crops, I suggest a proper soil analysis from a lab and always fertilizer base off the crop you are growing.
Soil Health is the key to sustained and profitable farming.
