1 NECESSITY of Fertilizer Reduction when using Products containing SumaGrow July 2013

2 Ne ` ces ` si ` ty (noun) Something essential, especially a basic requirement

3 “Every chemical-based pesticide, fumigant, herbicide and fertilizer tested, harms or outright kills some part of the beneficial life [microbes] that exists in the soil...” Dr. E. Ingham, 2002, Soil Food Web, Oregon State University Currently at the Rodale Institute

4 To Obtain Higher Quantity, You Must Reduce Fertilizer To Obtain Highest Quality, You Must Eliminate Fertilizer
