Adding Biology for Soil and Hydroponic Systems written by Elaine Ingham, Ph.D. and Carole Ann Rollins, Ph.D.
Simple explanations about how to add biology to any plant growing system makes this book easy-to-read. Guidelines for conventional and organic applications — whether you’re growing indoors in controlled environments and soil-less media or outdoors in open fields of soil. Basic biology and chemistry of nutrient-cycling is presented. Reading this book will help you better understand the organic growing cycle.
