IMPROVEMENT TO FARMERS POTATOES AND GRASS
I tried volcanic rock dust on my CARA POTATOES on a “with and without trial basis” both this year and last year.
I applied it as a surface dressing both years just after planting to the same section of my field. Whilst the difference was not so noticeable – when it came to harvesting this year the difference was very remarkable. There are MORE POTATOES TO EACH PLANT and the INDIVIDUAL POTATOES ARE LARGER where the volcanic rock dust had been applied. There is also an IMPROVEMENT TO TASTE OF THE POTATOES where the volcanic rock dust had been used.
In April this year I applied the remainder of the volcanic rock dust to the GRASS PASTURE for sheep in-front of my house. This summer the GRASS WAS GREENER, LONGER AND LUSHER in the section of the field where the volcanic rock dust had been added.
