The Choice Is Yours
The High Brix Garden program is really a 3-part program:
- First a soil test is taken to determine a starting point for a soil remineralization program.
- Secondly, on the basis of the soil test, a mixture of soil amendments, fertilizers, and microbial inoculants is custom formulated for your specific soil.
- Lastly nutrient drenches and foliar sprays are used in order to increase the mineral density of produce and keep the soil high in available nutrients.
The second part of the program is the nutritional foundation of your soil’s health. Without it the foliar sprays and nutrient drenches are considerably less effective and the ability to achieve high brix is seriously limited. For this reason the annual broadcast of nutrients is considered a critically important component in the High Brix Garden program.
International Ag Labs offers gardeners several options for obtaining high mineral density produce from their own gardens.
