As technology advances and the ways of changing how we understand biological science change, so too is how we cultivate our crops changing. More and more over the recent years different tactics and methods have been pursued in advancing plant production. Many of these methods include chemicals and modification to plants that are in no way natural. As the public has become more aware of these changes and how it effects their food, from the vegetables they eat to the steaks they put on the dinner table, many people, and companies have decided that these chemicals were not in their best interest. Despite this negative response many growers continued to use these methods, because they were, for the most part, under the impression that there is no better way out there to maximize their profit.
What happened during these changes to the market, is that a lot of people forgot to simply go back to the basics, the basics of what plants need to grow and be nutritious. Plants don’t need chemicals formulated in laboratories in order to produce large yields. In reality what the need are basic plant foods, the most important of which is Calcium.
What Calcium is, as most of us should already know, is a naturally occurring element. But this element is crucial for plants growth and production. Without the right amount of calcium in the soil, plants are literally starving, wanting to grow, but not having the nutrients that they need to grow. But the best part about calcium is that it is truly 100% natural, not formulated, not a complex chain of various elements and chemicals strung together, but a pure substance.
We live in changing times, and with those times we must adapt. But at the same time when it comes to what humans have been doing since the beginning of time, when cultivating our crops we have to remember the basics. And as a result our plants get what they need, our harvest becomes plentiful, and our wallets benefit as well.
