I’m beginning to research elemental plant nutrient deficiencies in crops and young trees.
I hope that my plans for botanical experiments employing variably fortified aqueous mediums might then initiate diagnostic capacities relative to averting specific “crop failure” symptoms resultant of elemental nutrient deficiencies. The absences of specific nutrients are induced in laboratory specimen growth solutions that are nourishing the targeted herbaceous species.
Then, field remediation using resultant understandings of lab proven solutions indicative of nutritional cures might become utile on Bloomfield lands. Experimentally, the periodic omission of specific elemental nutrient solutes from laboratory growing solutions is the proven method I intend to perfect and explain in regards to this applied botanical research program .
I invite everyone’s participation and hope for leadership with offices, expertise, facility space and properties including and other than my own. Further, Bloomfield’s Harris Agriscience two greenhouse botanical research laboratory might eventually be appropriate scientifically and politically if the scale of these postulated experiments increases.
Contemporaneously, Any space in southern windows, greenhouses, cold frames, or with appropriate artificial light might prove useful once the soilless chemistry processes are defined. Basil or tomato are my chosen research plants for demonstrating plant diseases in leaves and fruits. The Arbor Day Foundation can provide desirable native species of trees for silvicultural and arboreal versions of these hydronic scientific applications.
Father Michael at SHC and I are beginning to talk about agronomy, yeast leavening and fermentation, vinting, arbor culture, food preparation, silviculture, and all the biblical examples of such things.
