Amazing information about why some pests cannot eat healthy plants!

0 0

Sometimes information becomes available that make you say ‘Hummmm’, and this is that kind of info.  When we test our produce or plants for their level of health/nutrients we use our Brix tester. This tool gives us the level of sugars contained in the plant/fruit/leaves, which in turn tells us the level of health in the whole plant. When a plant reaches a level of 12 – 13 on the Brix scale, the plant becomes toxic to some of our crop pests. Why, you ask??  Pests such as aphids do not have a pancreas and therefore cannot metabolize large amounts of sugars and they die if they eat healthy plants.

Now this information in conjunction with the information about plants giving of gases when they are stressed and therefore attracting pests to ‘take them out of the food chain’, does a lot to explain why we need to strive for nutritionally charged plants and not artificially pumped ‘pretty’ plants
