Do you know Liebig’s barrel? He was a practical researcher who simply stated that a rain barrel can never be filled more than the length of the shortest shelf. With a rain barrel you can point out the shortest shelf in no time. It is not necessary to measure the length of the shortest board. It is less easy to pinpoint the shortest plank when growing crops.
Where the grower does not know what to do and asks for my help, after a first interview a numerical approach follows. Tackle the problem with simple calculations. This usually follows the direction to the solution.
I am a very practical person with a broad interest and more than 30 years of experience in growing, climate, substrates, food, light and water, composting, micro life and weird questions. It all comes together in cultivation, always in a different way.
