Project Information


Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE94-044.

First a test on the leaves was done for nutrient values, with the following findings: N-P-K =0 -10- 30, with high magnesium (305ppm) and high calcium (1093 ppm). The direct soil use I have been using for the last two years with beans. The leaves were incorporated into the soil with my tiller, two weeks before planting. Findings, the bean plants grown in the leaf mix soil grew larger and produced beans 5-7 days sooner then the beans that were not. More tests on the crop growth will be done this year.
