Identifying and Treating Plant Performance Issues
by Dane S. Shota, CA

Without addressing these issues above the technician will limit or not have any results on turning around the plant problem issues.
There can be two plants side by side and one plant can have insects and/or disease and the other one not. What is the difference?
One is stressed or in an accelerated tender growth and the other one is not because it is healthy and hardened off.
This is because I use a product that encourages deep rooting allowing the plant to produce allelochemicals producing a shield the plant needs to ward off insects and diseases.
The audience is pest control advisers or Qualified applicators, Certified Arborists and they will treat the symptom but not the problems which is the soil.
We are problem solvers and help the practitioner excel in their results when doing their treatment.
If you do not treat the problem you will never get to the root of the problem and your symptoms will always come back. Sometimes even after treating the symptoms the symptoms do not go away because the soil problem is so bad.
We can do this with the rules of Permaculture! No digging and no tilling!


TLE seminars are "more advanced than typical conference seminars."
