Would you be kind enough to find out who is doing the "current research of Sea Solids" as a nutrient in growing crops. at U.F. I had a colleague inform me there is some on-going current research, and so, I am thinking the Volusia Extension would have the necessary contacts. You guys are connected, right?

Doing a "search" in the Ohio State Ag / Horticulture page, it would not recognize the work done by Dr Hannah Mathers on the effects of Glysophate lingering in the soil, creating destruction for perennials. Please; Can you please provide me with the wonderful paper Dr. Mather's wrote on how the glysophate moves out of the Weeds, only to reactivate and be taken up by perennials. I grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables, using a "biological" approach, and I'm very interested in getting an in-depth perspective of her findings. I have some perennial peppers I have had for years, and I'm experiencing the bark cracking, as with some fruit trees in the same area! (I AM SUSPECT Glysophate my be destroying the Phloem!) My concern is; and I'm angry with myself, but only in "hindsight", after coming across a short article referencing Dr. Mathers research on the longevity of glysophate in the soil, and that "continued cycle that allows it to pass on to other plant life/perenials"! Why? Would be a logical question; well, I "was" an avid collector of all the fools in my now becoming over-developed community who bagged their leaves and grass clippings, putting them to the curb, only to go to the landfill. Besides getting truckloads of Barn shavings from the horse stalls, and mixing it with my collected leaves, and some already broken down compost as a starter medium; then adding Rock Dust powders, such as Azomite, and other inorganic minerals to boost the feeding of soil-life, this is my big push to up the humus content in my otherwise, pathetic Florida soil; "curse William Albretch Ph.D", for beautifully pointing out my incredible challenges concerning the high-heat, and sixty(60)inches of rainfall each year! Incredible consumer of humus, you end up with shell! NOTE: Before coming across the exist of Dr Hannah's glysophate research, I wanted to do an experiment of my own with some nasty herbicide >although, I don't use any chemicals on my propertywhichever would be best suited for my experiment

We are a local health department (Elyria). We are trying to help a local business that sells recycled furniture and beds. Where can we find information on furniture reconditioning/treatment to assure that it's bedbug free?
I have a new backyard computer. In the process of setting it up and I am noticing that the composter has no "floor." Its floor is the ground. I will be using it primarily to compost greens. Should I put something on the bottom on the composter or is it fine to just start dropping greens in to sit on the grass at the bottom? Thanks!! Joan

My wife and I recently bought a piece of land. We had the property surveyed. Our only neighbor has mowed and built a walkway on our property. Our land is a 5-acre parcel, and the neighbor is using approximately 30' x 70'. We don't have plans for this part of our land. However, this is our property and I'm sure I pay taxes on it. What can/should I do?

Could you please tell me what this is? I believe it is a leech but am wondering what kind and if they bother animals or people. I found it in a muddy area of my yard. I live outside Fort Collins, Colorado. Thanks.
