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!

Thank you!

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.

Enjoy!
