Straw Question...
    #1184205 - 01/02/03 07:02 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

do you guys add anything to your wheat straw (other than horse/cow/yak shit)? do you try to balance the ph?

the beauty of straw is simplicity.
just pasteurize and innoculate.
as far as ph goes, i have never tested it.
works well with minimal hassle.
:tongue:

  Some peeps soak or pasteurize the straw in the same water that they used to
steep bird seed or pasteurize thier manure in. As for as I  am aware, there is no
real proof this will boost your crops, but some swear by it.
  But basicaly what viscid said is how it goes.  :wink:

Do you just soak the straw to sterilize or do you put any bleach / dawn in ti and then soak or do you preasure cook it? I cant seem to find a good tech for this and that seems to be the method that the people I bought the straw from suggest I was doubtfull though. :confused:

i cant give you scientific proof, but it makes sense to me that manure water would add nutes to straw . :laugh:
