A Bunch of Biology for the Pumpkin Patch

Today I added a mess of beneficial bacteria and fungi into the pumpkin patch. With a hose end sprayer I covered all 900 square feet of patch with 9 tablespoons of Azos, 8 tablespoons of Actinovate and a half of a tablet of Biotamax. These beneficial probiotics when added to the soil and leaves can help kill bad bacteria and fungi, increase root mass and fix nitrogen into the soil. After spraying whole whole patch down I watered the patch for an hour to get everything down to the root zone. Does it work? The studies say yes and the world-record giant pumpkin grower used a mess of this stuff in his patch last year.
