The Secret to Faster Growth, Larger Yields, and More... Using Electricity!
About the Book
Electro-Horticulture, also known as electroculture, describes a class of effective, yet seldom-used methods for accelerating plant growth, boosting crop yields, and more!
In this book you will start by learning about the history of electroculture by studying the early experimenters who used "Earth Battery" technology to increase their yields from approximately 30% to 300%. Once you have an idea of the amazing successes that are possible, you'll start learning about the science of electroculture. From there we'll cover the following topics:
- The effects that electricity has on soils, microbes, and plants themselves
- A comprehensive listing of the benefits of electro-horticulture
- Application ideas ranging from season extension to drought protection.
- Instructions on how to build a system yourself
- And more!
By reading this book you will get 3 things:
- A thorough understanding of the science behind the remarkable effects of electroculture
- A hands-on appreciation of what's possible.
- Ideas for how you can apply this technology to your own garden or farm.
When you're done reading and start experimenting, you can expect to see enormous returns on your investment!
I'd like to give my thanks in advance to all of you who chose to puchase this book! Feel free to get in touch and interact with me and I would gladly assist you with anything you need regarding your exploration of electro-horticulture.

Been reading your book. Enjoying it throughly.
Excellent book because there are zero books out there with this information. But the author did not make it a paper book. and you cant seem to print it out. bumber. Hopefully he puts this into print and contacts me for a free copy. LOL Thank you though. Excellent.
I'm reading an amazing book that explains how atmospheric electricity affects all life on earth and how it can benefit life if we utilize it. If you think this is a bunch of hooobily jubillee read up on the Faraday cage. There is solid proof to back it up.
This is not only a well-researched, well-written book, but it has something for everyone. It has soil chemistry and electrical physics for the scientifically minded, plant physiology for the biologist, and electro-horticulture history for the history buff. If you just want the facts, there are step-by-step instructions on how to construct and best utilize this really cool idea. While this agricultural technology has been around for a long time, David Wechsler should be commended...
Anyone who watches their garden grow has probably noticed and increase in the perkiness and vigor of their plants after an electric storm. In Electro-Horticulture David Wechsler gives us a better understanding of this phenomena. We are apprised of the science and history of Electro-Horticulture. Wechsler's enthusiasm is contagious. After reading I feel eager and fully enabled apply the principles of Electro-Horticulture to my seedlings using an old cell phone charger and iron nails.

C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
