If there is one liquid ingredient worth having around, it’s baseline. Baseline is:
A soluble liquid supplement that feeds beneficial microorganisms; an excellent source of humic and fulvic acids.
It can be used in conjunction with an existing organic or synthetic liquid fertilizer program. It:
- Increases nutrient cycling
- Is an excellent ingredient in compost tea
- Can be used as a stand-alone foliar spray or root drench
- Can be used in drip irrigation systems without clogging emitters
While more expensive than other powdered humics, baseline has many benefits. First off, it is of the highest quality humus and will not create nutrient deficiencies, lockouts or other irregularities sometimes observed with powdered humics. Additionally, its liquid nature makes for rapid tank mixing, unlike other humic powders that get caked onto tank sidewalls and congeal into black clay like dots all over your equipment.
Baseline is basically like plasma for your plants and is a key component to the health of mother plants or any plants that spend many months root bound in containers. Root bound plants can be continuously regenerated by weekly applications of baseline and other microbial products.
Here is a short video demonstrating the use of baseline in a small nursery in Humboldt County:
