We might need to remove the 'versus' part, and utilize every tool we have... (or not?)

Nancy,

I saw this video from a Youtuber that I follow "OneYardRevolution"
In the video he talks about the yield on different vegetables using his soil as a control group.
The soil is made up of his composted leaves, wood mulch, coffee and worm castings.
The other two soil solutions are enhanced with rock dust and biochar. The biochar does
improve the test but for the year it was less than a pound of produce greater, he talks
about continuing the test but I have not seen that video if it out yet, I guess 2015 may
still have some produce arriving still. I think he is in the Chicago area.

This is a video the OneYardRevolution guy did on a soil test of his composted soil.
Using only compost without fertilizers or other commercial amendments.
