Ferts.What are you using in your veggie garden that is cost effective?

What are you folks using that doesn't break the bank?I have been considering going with General Hydro's Maxi series,but have heard that Dyna-Gro is a good fert and inexpensive.Then there is the Texas Tomato Food line..and Neptunes Harvest,but they are kind of spendy.

There are a lot of choices available,but what works for you?

$45 for their analysis and I believe $30 for the Logan's lab test and it only costs me about $10-$15 to amend a yard of soil for balanced nutrients so about $100 in total for the first yard and only $10-$15 to amend each additional yard to grow nutrient dense produce. Are u growing this for yourself? Then grow something that tastes good and is high in nutrients. The owner of the website, soil minerals.com, is also a new member on this site as "m. astera"

If ur goal is saving money this is def. cheaper then bottled nutrients, unless your only growing a couple plants.

Thanks for the trying to help MZC,but I am in SE Asia...not the US.

I buy ferts and have the family send them to me here along with other necessities.I am restricted to a certain size,so I can't buy 50 lb bags of anything.Choices here are almost non existent with regards to nutrients,so I need buy ferts that are cost effective,considering the additional cost of shipping.

You can mail your native soil sample to the USA for a soil test. Once you get a test you will see you have been overspending for lower quality. Check out the nutrients on that website they are mostly very concentrated nutrients approved for use on organic farms, at minimum may give you ideas of concentrated organic amendments??. If you know exactly what you need you can order much less then if you are "guessing" and just adding organic nutrients randomly like most organic farmers. Do you plan to grow in native soil? Getting a soil test is even more important for you to ensure you are not ordering a bunch of ingredients that are only going to make your soil more imbalanced.

Good luck and happy farming!

Yep.

Here people go into the fields and pick up cow chips.When they use it as a fertilizer for a container plant,they just break off a piece and put it on top of the soil.

What they don't use for fertilizer,they use like wood to cook with.

especially since you are in se asia you should get familiar with moringa leaves as an organic supplement. here's a thread I started:

https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?threadid=311411

i'm the only one posting that's using it for cannabis that I know of. I just started using it couple weeks ago. already cleared up one plants nute issues , imo from the looks so far.

moringa is dirt cheap in se asia. it's the most nutritious food source on the planet. it's got everything. Asian women use it for skin cream.

check it out before you say no.
