    I think we also need to recognise that the human species is not designed to consume so much carbohydrate in our diet. We are principally meat eaters and it is the consumption of too much carbohydrate in one form or another; cereals; rice; potatoes; that we farmers produce, that cause many of...

    Magnesium locking up potash?

    I would be not so quick to judge, after all if we accept that excess potash will reduce the mg content of grass and induce staggers, as above, then why can we not accept that other elements in excess can cause similar imbalances within the plant. Similarly there is evidence that excesses in...
