If you wish to grow Wheatgrass at home or on your land here is some useful information pertaining to which kind of soil and weather conditions are best suited for its cultivation.
Soil stores and transports water and air, and thus nutrients, for plant roots, to absorb to encourage healthy growth. Wheatgrass prefers a nearly neutral soil -about 6.5 pH and Loamy soil is the best for its cultivation or growing it at home for personal uses like taking it as a supplement in form of juice or powder.
Apart from the Loamy soil, Clay and Sandy-Loamy soils can also be used, and this plant thrives well in it provided there is proper drainage system and these soils should not either be acidic or sodic i.e. the soil should not contain a large amount of sodium in it.
Loamy soil is a mixture of sand, silt, and clay which provides ideal nutrients to wheat and its quality output–Wheatgrass, which has become a promising super-food in the modern era backed by traditional research and usage as a potent tool to fight and prevent from numerous diseases including Cancer.
Loamy soils are made up of about 40 percent sand, 40 percent silt and 20 percent clay and are considered a very fertile soil that helps in proper drainage due to its sand content and due to the presence of silt and clay allows for rapid absorption of water and air by plant roots, which encourage superior growth.
WG grows in many types of soil, but it grows best in well-drained loam or clay-loam soils as it’s known for better distribution of salts and nutrients that build up in soils and when the quantity of these salts and nutrients is in excess, which can also be harmful, it increases a plant’s ability to extract more water and getting rid of excess salts and nutrients.
Wheatgrass can grow in a variety of climates and soils, but it grows the best in temperate zones and needs a bit of humidity at the sprouting stage followed by sun’s energy to grow to its full potential and use of good quality organic fertilizers can be of additional benefits when it comes to growing WG for reaping it utmost health benefits.
