Yes, it's a truly enlightening video!
I have his book (coauthored) "The Mushroom Cultivator"

Funny story... My Mom gave it to me... she found it at a thrift shop I think... about 2 weeks before I saw that video.

I rarely have time to read any of the books I have stacked up in que for reading (I need a month off for just that)
But, I had to wait for someone somewhere the day after I got it... So I decided to read some of it while I waited...
Well the person was VERY late... over an hour... so I got some good reading done... and man was I excited after reading that!
Being a plant breeder, I find it really exciting to read on an even more complex breeding concept... its overwhelming to some degree at the moment... but then I saw that video... and it all clicked together another puzzle level.

Paul Stametz is the John Kempf of Fungi. hehe

Well that is an actual study... with a full explanation... Not sure what else you're looking for...
See the attached PDF if you havent..

Oh no need to apologize, I'm more than happy to clarify... and I agree.. facts can confuse sometimes... thats what a lot of big companies rely on... I'm here to cut through the garbage.. grin

hope these infographics help

Not at all Chris... quite the contrary... it backs up your arguement.

see pubmed for new info:

and I can go on all day... but I'll just throw a few charts at you...

glad to have helped, yes he really covrs all the bases... a great insight into the info we have on FSN about true nutrition principles... fungi are able to convert almost any organic matter into 38-42 % lipophilic acid (spelling check) which is basically fats... and the basis for good soil biology and nutrition. fungi set the bacteria for soil.. they actually designate whos allowed... nature is so cool it'll blow your mind! Anyway, glad to be of service, its my job on this planet.... cheers!

Listen to that first video al the way through.. He only patented them to prevent companies like monsanto from doing so... cost him 25 million or something... but its free for us to use and he sells the plugs for many different types very cheap... I hold no grudges for this... I'd way rather see it privately patented and allowed for use than "monsanto'ed" and sueing everyone like poor Percy Schmeizer. Beyond that, I agree.. noone should be able to patent life... period.

Glyphosate's mode of action is to inhibit an enzyme involved in the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. It is absorbed through foliage and translocated to growing points. Because of this mode of action, it is only effective on actively growing plants; it is not effective as a pre-emergence herbicide.


a little more:

Glyphosate kills plants by interfering with the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan. It does this by inhibiting the enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS), which catalyzes the reaction of shikimate-3-phosphate (S3P) and phosphoenolpyruvate to form 5-enolpyruvyl-shikimate-3-phosphate (ESP).[11]


ESP is subsequently dephosphorylated to chorismate, an essential precursor for the amino acids mentioned above.[12] These amino acids are used in protein synthesis and to produce secondary metabolites such as folates, ubiquinones and naphthoquinone.

that would be why it doesnt kill plants the next year or even crop rotation cycle.

if it were that persistent in the root zone there would be no need of a new application on each new years crop,

I'm sorry but it sounds like you really don't understand how it works.. or its actual toxicity.

That said, I agree.. remediation of that soil with good biology and healthy organism is the QUICKEST and best way to rejuvenate the soil. My major concern is that any animals and people that consume food from these sources will experience DIRE negative biological affects. It has so many negative pathways it will blow your mind. For instance, it locks up manganese and zinc from the cells in plants.. and in human bones ( which is what human bones are primarily composed of.

I encourage you to listen to the info we have available.. it will really change how you look at biological systems in general, and especially as it relates to toxins.

Did you know antibiotics and pesticides work basically the same way? They BOTH lock up or Chelate trace elements. All enzymes and consequently all protein blocks and consequently all animals and humans rely on trace minerals. Enzymes are actually crystal covered trace elements.

cheers! I like our ongoing dialogue.

A couple years back I went to a hazelnut field day (badgersett research farm) and was surprised to hear the owner say that the system they are developing isn't for marginal land which too often is the default choice for any alternative to agriculture. They want their system (which would be totally compatible to permaculture by the way) not to be just another 3rd crop or side project but to compete with and replace an annual crop-tillage-pesticide regime.

yes.. totally agree... and also agree rehab is a great idea... but yo must understand the drawbacks and complications fully up front... so you don't get down the path and then discover a miscalculation. I think ultimately, we all just want to see you be as successful as you can be with said project.

One more idea I'm going to suggest may get me kicked off this forum but here goes: Pick out half or a third of this field and for at least the next several years keep it corn or beans or whatever is grown where you are. Make sure that it's some of the best land for this and section it off in a way that fits whatever machinery is being used. Enlist the help of a local organic or at least more ecologically knowledgeable farmer to cut back on the pesticides, grow conventionally bred crops instead of GMO, and use the least harmful fertilizers.

yes corn and beans a other crops definitely have major soil building potential, especially combined with proper foliar feeds and even more so at the proper critical points of influence fo the crop you're working with. There are many other great soil building crops as well. And MOST important is proper biology and trace mineral nutrition..

I'm watching and in for this one..

Seeding with the right mix is probably the best thing you can do if you are looking for shorter term solutions.

also recommend foliar feeding every 2 - 4 weeks throughout the season. Foliar feeds are the other toolbox that is often ignored by farmers. remember, healthy plants build healthy soils very quickly.. the 2 work WELL together as a system as whole. To learn more about using these tools together come see us at We have lots of educational tools and its all free. I'd be glad to help guide you through the rehab process for your land. you'd be amazed what can be done in just 1 year with the right foliars (these are extremely cheap and use a very small amount of material to drastically increase plant health and performance without compromising biology or suppressing the natural systems.

hope this helps!
