PREFACE
This computing device is an try to supply simple information regarding including biology to soil and soilless media no matter if in open air fi elds or indoor managed surroundings hydroponics platforms. when we are built with the data, we will then make clever judgements while confronted with such a lot of offerings of manufacturers and items available on the market. even if we're utilizing artificial fertilizers/nutrients or sustainable practices, or have switched over to natural platforms, there's a option to upload biology to augment construction, yield and caliber. This workstation offers you a number of the parameters, instruments and data so that you can combine biology into your particular turning out to be system.
