    Spraying nitrogen is going to reduce plant exudates meaning the free fertilizer factory in the ground won’t be producing nitrogen for you as it can. @john.kempf spoke recently about rhizophagy, where research indicates its possible to provide 100% of the plants nutritional requirements (both macro and micro) through biology. I’ve been testing this using our fungal dominant vermicompost aged > 12 months for diversity and have seen very good results with vegetables in our market garden. David Johnson has some excellent youtube videos about this.

    “The future of agronomy and plant nutrition will be based on understanding the science needed to supply one hundred percent of a high yielding crops nutritional requirements as microbial requirements, and not as simple ions from applied products.”
