Planting Nutrition Management
Ideally, an integrated food web can transform nutrients in soil to bioavailable forms to support the nutrition of plants. In reality, the restoration of soil takes time, and therefore some interventions are needed to provide supplementary nutrients for plants. The key for fertilization lies on two aspects: 1) whether the nutrients are ready for plant absorption, and 2) whether the nutrients are complete for health plant growth. When the plant grow healthily, it will in return improve soil fertility.
- Recipe for microbial cocktails (for plants)
We mix natural ingredients like sea fish, kombu, probiotics and honey. The mixture is fermented to a nutrients-rich microbial cocktails which can cater the nutrition requirements of different plants. This recipe provides the plants with trace elements on top of typical nutrients found in general fertilizers. The microbes will transform the nutrients in the natural ingredients to bioavailable forms during fermentation. After dilution, the microbial cocktail is ready to use. Most of the nutrients can withstand irrigation and farm runoff.
- Leaf spray and root irrigation
The fermented nutrients soup is diluted proportionally to spray on leaf surface and irrigate at roots. Leaf spray acts as a supplementary practice to root irrigation. The nutrients can penetrate the leaf surface and reach the inner cells directly.
