“…plants grow better in warm weather than they do in cold weather. Naturally there are extremes in heat and cold. When the temperature rises to about 90 F the speed of the electrons becomes so great that plant roots cannot magnetically attract the food elements and hold them because of their momentum. The greater the speed, the greater the heat becomes and the greater the soil’s holding power of heat. This is true of both high and low pH readings as long as this exists.
The total amount of calcium or potash found in soils by flame photometer soil test methods means very little; This is because the total amount of elements present in the soil has very little to do with the available amounts of plant food. Energy can be accurately measured only liquid soil test methods. The cation nutrient and anion nutrient molecular count can be tabulated to accurately predict the timing of the release of the plant food energy. This can be done so that more fertilizer can be added before all the plant food energy is used and any damage is done. Direct plant food energy cannot be accurately calculated by flame photometer soil test analysis. Then, you might ask, why is this soil test method used? The answer is that it is a quick and very cheap method of making soil tests. This kind of test is better than nothing at all, but it falls far short of what other test methods could do for persons involved.”
