Crop association, legumes & weed?
    #673760 - 06/06/13 08:02 PM (3 years, 5 months ago)

hi guys, again studying on organic farming, there is this crop association thing were i read that legumes like beans, and soy are host to nitrogen fixing bacteria that supposedly can benefit other certain crops... like corn and beans....

Now they say soy is the best one and most compatible with all plants, do you think it would help a cannabis plant to be planted in the same container than a soy one plant?

Never heard anything on the subject matter.  But since you are using a container, and not in the ground, I wouldn't do it.

Short answer is no.

Farmers that use legumes usually plant them in the fields PRIOR to planting their crop. They let the legumes fill up with N then they go with a tractor and just chop them up right back into the ground. The legumes are full of N and they compost in the soil, releasing N as the bacterias break them down. Its really more complex than that as there is N being released into the soil while the legumes are growing but im tryin to keep it simple.

For container gardens you can try to apply it but it doesnt work very well if youre soil isnt full of.organic microbes to break down the N.

If you really wanna read about companion planting check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Sisters_(agriculture)

Native americans used to plant the "three sisters" in which their basic foods are planted in such a way that they benefit from each other. They usually plant beans up a corn stalk, the beans provide N to the heavy feeding corn.

Ill stop there because this is a really in depth topic.
