PREFACE
This pc is an try to offer simple information regarding including biology to soil and soilless media no matter if in open air fi elds or indoor managed atmosphere hydroponics structures. when we are outfitted with the information, we will then make clever judgements whilst confronted with such a lot of offerings of manufacturers and items available to buy. even if we're utilizing artificial fertilizers/nutrients or sustainable practices, or have switched over to natural structures, there's a method to upload biology to reinforce construction, yield and caliber. This computer provides you with the various parameters, instruments and data so that you can combine biology into your particular transforming into system.
