A second question, relating to a naive (very) ex[eriment we did some time ago.
If you plant surface sterilised seeds in autoclaved soil, growth is about
1 1/2 weeks behind that of regular seeds in regular soil. What do you
think I could be driving off in the soil tthat might cause this (NH4,
oxygen, ?) we didn't do the other combinations at the time, as I say it
was a very naive experiment that we set up last thing before christmas,
jsut out of interest.
