Hey Kent,

I always recommend identifying your budget first. Many nutrient lines are expensive so its great to make a decision based on the resources you have. Scheduling depends on the fertility of your soil and whether you use things like compost or compost teas. These additives can help reduce the need to fertilize as much. Most people mix in fertilizers with their water if doing indoor grows. For large scale agriculture it may make sense to fertilize the soil. You can decrease your inputs on a large scale by using things like chicken manure and fish emulsion sprayed over soil before planting. Your local grow stores are fantastic for recommendations on brands. Some that I am familiar with are Botanicare, Fox Farm, Cyco, Hydrogarden, Dr. Earth, Age Old. There are so many product lines to choose from. Building soil and understanding soil health are a valuable skill in farming and I suggest reading as much as possible on these subjects. Farmers are much like cooks, I have never met one with the same recipe!

Hi, wondering about best practices for fertilizing when planting clones- we are getting plants in June and thought about compost tea, but wasn't sure if that had enough kick for clones starting in soil. Thanks!

Hello Kent,
Soil and Hydro mediums are the beginning of all healthy crops and without the correct combination for your specific plant genetic needs, you may not be able to get the full genetic potential. Contact me is you have question about the attached photo or would like to have additional information on increasing your return on investment.

Irrigation question- on dirt (not plastic) what is recommended for drip irrigation (I'm assuming drip would be best but open to other ideas) for 4 acres- and where to buy? I see all sorts of packages online....hate doing that without knowing exactly what's needed. Thanks for any info!

This is a good article I found on the subject. The product will depend on water source mainly. For 4 acres, you can look into small farm irrigation systems there are various youtube videos. Most of the time the right kit is the one right for your budget.
