In agriculture, we sometimes forget the very basics!
What is agriculture (growing apples) all about? Isn’t it just the conversion of the Sun’s light into sugar (energy)? So if we take a step back, aren’t the leaves on the trees “solar collectors”, the branches “pipelines/wiring” and the fruit the “storage/battery” – So what do you do to maximize the production of energy (sugar) in each solar collector (leaf)? Talk to BioGro, that is what we help you do, with amazing results.
SUNLIGHT = SUGAR
- 90% of plant matter is water 10% is ‘solids’.
- Of this 10%, 90% is Carbon Hydrogen Oxgyen – ALL derived from SUGAR,
- Only 10% of this is NPK and minerals!
- So... 90% of the solids in plants comes from the SUN and photosynthesis. We spend a lot of time working on fertilizer logistics, but how much do we spend on getting sugars (90%) into the system?
