I don't think Mr. Hieber was trying to imply that root feeding was not a
valid way to feed plants. I believe he meant that it was superfluous if
one is dosing the water column. Or, in other words, it is no more or
less effective than dosing the water. I think he was referring to the
idea that root feeding was a *requirement* was old-fashioned.
