If you talk to the guys at MidWest BioAg, or Gary Zimmer at Otter Creek 
Farm near Lone Rock, WI, you can get the whole skinny on boron and 
calcium as well as their relationship to soils and other elements.


Check Acres USA book sales list too.
Get a copy of The Albrecht Papers, by Prof. William Albrecht, premier 
soil scientist of the 20th Century organic movement.

Also see the four publications authored by Newman Turner on organic 
foundation farming.
