Found it very informative.

Do any of y'all use a refractometer?

Here is a link that might be useful: http://vimeo.com/6689994

In my opinion that is largely BS. Think used car salesman. They are trying to sell you something. Weeds only grow on poor soil???? They didn't check with any weeds I've ever known.

I also don't agree with the idea that plant nutrition has much to do with plant disease issues.

So this guy is saying bugs only attack sick or malnourished plants? That makes no sense at all.

Steve,

Do you ever use your meter to test the green leaves of your plants?

No I haven't. You'd need one of those leaf mashers like in the video.

His fertilizer, as I understood the video, keeps bugs and disease off your crop and keeps out the weeds. Total bunk, IMO.

Steve,

His leaf masher is just a garlic press....can get one in any grocery store. I did not make it but halfway through his video. I do have to buy one of those refractometers though.
