Default Reduce herbicide and pesticides

Bug Off!

Balancing a field's soil biology and chemistry decreases the need for
chemicals by 30% to 50% because healthy, nutritionally balanced plants
are more resistant to stress from drought, weeds, disease and insect

Keep Your Crops from Being Eaten Alive

The best way to protect your crops from being eaten alive by pests is
to put them on a balanced diet. Insects and diseases are opportunists
who find their hosts by "listening" for imbalance. A plant weakened by
poor soil conditions puts out a frequency recognized by insects as
food. An insect can't recognize the frequency of a healthy plant
however, and will pass it up for an unhealthy one every time.

According to one of the nation's leading biologists, Dr. Bruce Tanio,
"If you
balance the nutrition in the plant no insect in the world will attack
that plant."

Recent studies have shown that farmers who use biological fertilizer
amendments to feed the soil and "allow the soil to feed the plant"
routinely reduce the amount of herbicides and pesticides they apply by
10% or more per acre the first season and 30% per acre over three
years -- without losing yield. In many cases, with balanced plant a
yields have actually increased. Some growers have also reported
reductions as high as 50%.
