Best Way to get Nitrogen to the Soil
I attended a class yesterday about seed saving and the speaker talked alot about corn. As a side discussion he mentioned that planting legumes to add nitrogen does no good until the legume dies. The legume plant needs the nitrogen in its own root system but once harvested and you till or turn-under the soil, the dead roots then add nitrogen back to the soil.
So, what do I need to do for my corn now to give it nitrogen? In the past I made a tea from alfalfa pellets. This works great but is very stinky, draws LOTS of flies and is time consuming to make. (You need a bubble system to add air to the tea as it 'cooks'.)
The speaker suggested adding granulated sulphur. Any other ideas? Thanks all.
