The high calcium levels combined
with milks natural bacteria make for an excellent natural spray to control fungal diseases
on many plants. Add a dash of garlic and a dash of baking soda. Raw milk is best but
otherwise it doesn't make a difference the amount of fat it has. Powdered milk will work
if its only the calcium you want.
