There is plenty of evidence as to the effects of synthetic chemical fertilizers on soil organisms. You can believe what you want, the truth is out there.
So why not post some links to 'truth' that doesn't come from a source looking to make money selling something? I could well be flat out, 100% wrong.
But, without any kind of proof why should anyone believe what you are saying? You are probably correct. I am sure with 2 minutes of your time you can provide several non commercial links demonstrating rather than simply claiming the damage synthetic ferts do to bacteria, fungi and worms. Please do try to explain why synthetic treated lawns and golf courses have mushrooms and worms gallore.
You make the false assumption that worms only eat soil organisms.
It may be a false assumption, but it is what the good folks on the vermiculture forum tell me. I figure those who actually raise worms would know what worms do. Do you have evidence, other than your word, otherwise?
Like I posted, they also eat grass clippings, an abundance of which can be found at any golf course, as well as organic matter and soil minerals. The reason why the earthworms are abundant has nothing to do with soil organisms. Like I already posted, it's because of grass cuttings and constant watering. Pretty simple.
Yes, it is pretty simple to state. Now what I would like for you to do is show this willing to believe skeptic that what you have claimed is substantiated with more than opinion. Why not ask Dr. Ingham since she is on your message board for some info based upon SFI testing? My understanding is worms ingest lots of things. Burrowing worms do so to make tunnels and derive nutrition. Composting worms do so to get nutrition. The nutrition comes from soil organisms as I have been led to believe. I could be wrong, but I really need more than an 'I say so' from a guy who posts on the vermiculture board as an expert, but doesn't raise worms.
Like I said, I've already posted the answers. I'm not going to post again. If you continue to make the wrong assumptions, you will continue to get the wrong answers.
Thing is I am willing to believe you, I just need something more than "Believe me because I say so."
You can be as skeptical as you like. I'm not going to bother to answer rather obvious questions.
Ah, I see. In that case thank you for your time. I wasn't aware there were any questions related to microscopic bacteria that were 'obvious', but evidently there are.
I am glad you have all the answers, may your personal preaching board grow to more than a handful of converts for you to preach to. Goodness knows you aren't going to win many converts by refusing to answer 'obvious' questions.
In the future I would thank you to not take my postings from one board and post them here. Have the stones to actually chime in on the board I posted at that ran you off as a blowhard long on claims and short on evidence over a year ago. My bet is you don't have the guts to actually post your nonsense there. That's why you formed your own board with 10 members to preach to. Thats is why I suspect you no longer post to this board's vermiculture forum either. You post only so long as you don't get called out as a blowhard long on authoritative claims with no evidence other than from commercial sources you buy stuff from.
BTW, you notice how most of your authoritative posts on this forum get no responses? Figure it out. You are selling, but there aren't many buying.
