Remains of the Day
Terrabiogen liquid appears to have been applied previously at 0.0000002347 mL per kg of soil (half strength in TVD report). I will apply at 0.1 mL per kg then. Terrabiogen solid appears to have been applied previously at 0.25 g per kg of soil (full strength in TVD report). I will apply at 0.25 mL per kg then.
There was 2 kg of soil added to 5 cups (avg depth 13 cm) with 400 mL of water with 24-8-16 Miracle Gro at recommended concentration for outdoor plants (0.5 tsp/2L deonized water). All amendmants were added to this fertilized water, except TBG solid and Biofence powders, which were mixed into dry soil before fertilization. The FISH Emulsion, Molasses and TBG were all added at high rate, cause in field study the two former were added at the same rate to the field.
(to be clear, 1% means I'm using 10 g product/kg of soil, or 10 mL of product per kg of soil)
To check moisture levels at time of use, I weighed out 500 g and put it at 50 degrees for a couple days. Lets see how much water evaporates out of there...the weight 7 days later was 425 g, so the soil I used was at 15% moisture
