Thanks for showing us the ropes slownickel!
I'm new here. Spent about 3 days going through all the information and you got me convinced trying it out.
Congrats to all involved on the cup victories!

Already have gypsum and the Zn, Mn, Cu sulfates. Will start my lemon enzymes any day now.
What I donít yet have is an accurate soil test.
I want to sent a hybrid medium to spectrum, Iíll ask for the K-3 procedure by mail.
Iím also an avid gardener. Fruit, vegetables and ornamantels. The soil I have is black sandy soil, with a decent OM %. I mulch with compost, leaves and wood chips. Irrigation is rain water: low EC, slighty acid. Should I better order the K-3 procedure for my garden samples as well? Since the S3 doesnít seem to use the AA@8.2 for the calcium levels.
Next, spectrum says to take a sample of the top 7 inches, Tiedjens calls for 3 feet. Quiet a difference. Which method would you recommend?
And when I sent them in, should I kindly ask Ďto add them to the snownickel databaseí?

I did test my soil previous year using Loganís. I now know that this was not the best choice.
I did however find out I got way too high numbers of aluminium and iron.
Concerning the iron: should I add as much Mn sulfate to get aprox 0.8 Fe/Mn ratio? Iím afraid to harm my soil with those quantities. I guess I should add those quantities, but split them in a lot of smaller applications over letís say 3 years, right?

Any thing I can do about the aluminium? I read about the toxity problems on alkaline soils. So I guess, stay clear of (excess) calciumcarbonates and donít add more aluminium?

My soil test:



Cheers from Belgium!

No idea what Slow will say, other than get a Spectrum test. I would love to give it a try, but don't take anything I say as truth.

The MN for sure should be raised. You can bump that number up to 100ppms or more, but not 386ppms, that is high. Try not to add any more Fe during this crop, and those numbers will even out. I would calculate a dose of Mn to achieve 100ppms overall, then I would water weekly with metals as well, making sure to keep out Fe. Your boron must be raised as well, you want those numbers closer to 4-8ppms, but Logan always under represents those numbers, so be careful.

I would also like to see the Ca numbers being over 3000ppms. With some gypsum that might bring your PH down to the 6.4- 6.8 range.


Now lets hear what the pros have to say?

Lots of room to fertilize. Looks great to me!

Big thanks to slow N you are a good man and I appreciate you. You as well easygoing you have given me a lot of encouagment the last couple years and it is also very much appreciated.
Two reasons I lay on the encouragement thick:

One: you guys are up in bum fook nowhere, and it's hard to judge just how good you guys are with very little competition. This will change next year when you can bring your product to market, but you needed a boost IMO to get that confidence. I mean, you even said you didn't see it coming....... Well, I did. I bet my friend 10-1 odds you guys would win....... And it was a sure bet. I believe in you guys, you guys are special.

Two: You guys represent good things. You guys have a family, grow with ethics, and are truly good guys. I have meet so many people in this industry, and so many people are just not good people. I never once felt that way around you guys, you guys are true, genuine people that personify the heart of the cannabis industry. I can't wait till I see Lassen farms on the super bowl commercials. That is how much confidence I have in you guys. You know I am willing to put my money where my mouth is, and guys, I have a huge opportunity coming. That 10k greenhouse is nothing compared to my new breaking news in my county. Details to come...... You guys will be set either way, and I will be a fan. Can't wait until Lassen farms are on the top shelve of my dispensary!

Thanks for the comment EasyGoing.

I am aware that I need a spectrum report. Hence my questions about the S3 or K3, the dept of the taken sample and the snownickel database.
I probably should have mailed the spectrum staff instead, but wanted to communicate as clearly as possible with them.

Previous year I did indeed add borax and some Mn sulfate already. Unfortunately I did also apply Magnesium and Sodium. I was reading Astera. Big fault, I understand now.

Thanks a lot for your take on the Fe/Mn. I did indeed feel the same about it intuitively.

I like to take samples at 6", 12" and 24". No reason to go deeper in beds and smart pots. K3 package for sure. I asked for the spectrum crew to add my results to SlowN's folder. That way he can run it into his Excel and give you better results.



Found this fun, pertains to evolution but interesting to hear about the genesis of fungi.

Cup winner was all Lassen boys, and they won c02 pen concentrate so the picture may not capture the awesome. I have a box and a cart handy, pics in a few.

Edit: I made a video, and I am in the process of uploading it to IG. ICmag is kind of a pain when dealing with high quality photos and videos.

Arnold,

If you are in a medium, take handfulls from down deep, middle and top, mix well and then sift lightly to only get what falls out. Do not grind the sample into the screen.

The logic is not to grind the big pieces.

Ask for the K-3.

And welcome!
