I really did not want to start spraying in march. There goes the profit margin. Spraying is kinda fun for some farmers. I like my tractor and enjoy being on her. But like any machine it don't run on love. Whether you or conventional or organic,to farm successfully you need to protect and grow your crops. Foliage feeding is huge. The leaves can absorb 10 times the nutrients the roots can. Also faster. Once absorbed through the leaves a nutrient can be readily uptaked. You can fix nutrient deficiencies more accurately and less costly than ground applications
