A word from Dr Christine Jones on NutriSoil & Nitrogen

Just about everything that lives in soil is very strongly inhibited by applications of high rates of water-soluble N and P. Interestingly, a small amount (say 1-5kg/ha urea) primes the system. I guess the amount of N in NutriSoil does the same. The microbes only need a whiff of N to get them started...
