  1. Thanks so much for this fascinating issue about ecoagriculture. This one episode has taught me so much and I’m now really inspired to get out there and improve my plants’ health. Just a shame it’s winter and nothing much is in leaf here! John mentioned using foliar sprays that primarily boost photosynthesis, with mineralisation as a secondary effect. I didn’t catch if he gave any specific examples of what these sprays might be. I have seaweed extract that I use from time to time as a mineral rich foliar spray, but I’ve no idea whether that would boost photosynthesis. Any ideas? Thanks once again for the fantastic interview.
