I hear ya Itchy,
Im far from an expert on anything. ( apart from how to annoy the missus.) It seems in this day and age we can find all sorts on the internet that supports any views we may or may not have. I try to follow the advise from .gov and or .edu sites, while also trying to take on board the knowledge of people like yourself. An open mind and a willingness to listen and learn is where I try to keep my mindset.
Triscombe? Do you mean trichome? Or are they the same?
In a perfect world I would leave my plants alone to fend for themselves. El natural. No help at all from a numpty like me. Doesn’t work that well in my backyard. It seems they need some numpty help to get their best......often their best is completely average. Hahaha.
Anyways. I’m grateful for your posts and knowledge. Cheers.
I think we are all trying our best. Learning curves and all that. Trying to make the best of our situations.
What I am trying to get my head around atm is the total active ingredient expressed as ppm in a foliar spray tank.
eg. Eco neem has 12grams of aza per 1 litre of solution.
If I use 2ml of that solution and mix it to one litre of water, then spray this equally across 6 plants. How many ppm does each plant receive?
From the above calcs. I should be able to work out the residual ppm left on or in the plants after a couple of half life’s etc etc.
Could possibly even work a backwards formula to see when the latest application can be made in order to obtain less than........let’s say .5-1ppm at harvest.
Sounds good in my head. The only drama is I suck at math.
Probably quite simple......sigh.
