What is ElectricFertilizer™?
ElectricFertilizer™ is a company devoted to finding novel, organic methods for the the acceleration and improvement of plant growth and other ecological systems using technology.
Making plants grow faster using electricity??? Is this for real?
Yes it is! In my first blog post, “A New Way to Boost Your Garden’s Yield – Using Electricity“, I give an overview of how I discovered this topic and a touch on some of the benefits. Below is a list of some of the main effects that can be observed in plants after they’ve been stimulated with electricity:
- Increased soil fertility
- Increased growth rate
- Yield increases from 20 to 400%
- Larger sized fruits and vegetables
- Protection against various diseases
- And more!
