Meeting the Nitrogen Demands of Garden Vegetables There is abundant nitrogen in nature, but very little is available for plant growth. The atmosphere is loaded with nitrogen gas (N2), with a whopping 3.8 X 1015 tons of molecular nitrogen circulating in the air we breathe. The rocks and sediments in the earth’s crust contain even more nitrogen, with about 18 X 1015...

Gardeners have observed the benefits of adding organic matter to soil for thousands of years. Organic matter not only improves the structure of the soil, it feeds the microorganisms in the soil, which in turn feed the plants. As microorganisms in the soil degrade organic matter, small organic molecules are produced that influence plant growth much more than the...
