What will happen if you add sugar in the soil?


it will sweeten tomatoes

It might sweeten your tomatoes but there are other, more interesting effects of adding sugar to your soil:

- Microbes will be attracted that make nutrients in the soil more available, so you need less anorganic fertilizer: you save money, avoid soil salinization and decrease carbon footprint

- Sugar helps your soil to longer hold water available for your plants

I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!!! (this is from another person)

I did an experiment on mung bean plants where I watered 3 plants with sugar and 3 plants with water, I conducted my experiment for 21 days, on the last day, the height of the 3 regular plants in centimeters were 15 and two measured 15.5 centimeters.

The sugar watered plants had the heights of 7, 4.5, and 3 centimeters

I added 1/2 tablespoon of sugar and mixed it with 6 oz of water and poured 2 oz. of the mixture in each pot,

by the way I germinated them beforehand with just water.

The 7 centimeter plant of the sugar lost all of its leaves

The sugared leaves were very small and shriveled, while the regular leaves grew big and healthy

That is why i don't believe it!
