Nutrition to plant comes from space and not soil Volume two is a revolution in agriculture and biology. It covers point to point how matter atoms from space and why they are being utilized by plants. These matter atoms percolate in to soil and water and are sucked by plants. The basic principle is soil does not loose weight as the plant grows. The role of soil is probably as a catalyst in the process of fixing nutrient atoms. Other main points are soil is insoluble in water and nothing can be eluted from it to be utilized. Also carbon dioxide in air does not have any energy as it can not burn and thus can not be part of photosynthesis.
