David Davidson is not just a worm farmer but a microbe farmer and says that the worms are the vehicle to breed the soil microorganisms in the whole soil foodweb. In his interview he talks about using a Brix meter (refractometer) to measure the plant’s ability to photosynthesize. It has been said that insect pests will not attack plants that have a brix reading above 12. David is producing plants that are resistant to insect pests saving him both time and money as no sprays are needed. He also talks about how to measure using a brix meter and how little it is going to cost to start investing in this type of system.

Wish to learn from you about it.
