Microorganism Power on Solid Fertilizers

Farmers should understand microorganism power on solid fertilizers. With very acidic soil, even application of tons and tons of soil fertilizer will have little effect. Very acidic soil is "almost dead," says experts, and tends to be very poor habitat for live microorganism to survive in. 

In fact, very small amount of microorganism exists in such soil, so that no matter how much soil fertilizers you apply, plants won't benefit from them. They just waste away in the soil, often getting washed out by water flow.

That's why farmers need to know about microorganism power on solid fertilizers, chemical or organic. Without microorganism in the soil, fertilizer mineral nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium won't be simplified into forms absorbable by plants. Plants cannot take in fertilizers like that all by themselves. They need microorganisms to process the nutrients in fertilizers for them.

But with acidic soil, few microorganisms survive in the soil. Acidic environment discourages life. There should be a balance in the pH level of the soil, and this is what microorganism does to the soil, among many others. That's why there's the need to apply BIOnix Max 1 on solid fertilizers, chemical or organic. Max is concentrated microorganism. When applied on solid fertilizers, the microorganism multiplies and converts the mineral nutrients into simpler forms so plants can absorb them easily. 

Here are the benefits of microorganism to the soil and plants: microorganisms enrich the soil with their presence, make solid fertilizers usable to plants, balance the pH level of the soil, and maximizes the effect of solid soil fertilizers up to about 3 to 4 times its power. That's microorganism power on solid fertilizers.

For acidic soil, the need for microorganism supplementation is a must. This brings back the natural fertility of the soil and helps a lot in the conversion of chemical soaked farms into organic farms.

Microorganisms, however, cannot do the job alone. They need solid soil fertilizers to maximize. You cannot apply microorganisms alone on the soil and expect your plants to perform better. Applying them on solid chemical fertilizers is called BIO-chemical farming, and applying them on organic solid fertilizers is called full organic farming.

Solving Pest Problems Organically

It has been a question posed on me each time I make an organic farming presentation. How about pests? Is there an effective organic pesticide? How do we go about solving pest problems organically?

Yes, there are organic pesticides available, even locally. The problem is, solving pest problems organically takes patience. It is not like how chemical pesticides can dramatically get rid of pests quickly. Thus, farmers have less confidence with organic solutions. 

Farmers seem too impatient nowadays compared to how farmers were some 50 years ago. Everybody wants instant and easy solutions. We should remember that nothing in nature is instant. If we want safe and lasting remedies, we have to go by how nature works.

Quick But With Side Effects

We are witnessing now the terrible side effects of synthetic or chemical pesticides--pests do get eliminated fast, but they come back as quickly as they were rid of, and with a vengeance. Somehow, insects get resistant after a while and the horror is that these resistant insects breed and multiply and spread. The next time around, you need to use more pesticides and in greater dosage. 

Solving pest problems organically takes the long way. Some farmers try organic pest control but when they see that pests still roam around and do damage, they abandon the method at once in favor of chemical pesticides. Solving pest problems organically may take long and hard but the effects are long term, even permanent. And the dosage on organic pest use tends to lessen, unlike with chemical pesticide use which increases to effect results.

Here are some organic pest control techniques:
  • Temporary toleration of pest damage on crops to some extent.
  • Allowing predatory but beneficial insects to get rid of pests.
  • The use of microorganism and beneficial insects, sometimes even providing them habitat.
  • Opting for disease resistant crops that naturally have pest resistant and survival properties when they're healthy.
  • Planting herbs or plants within the farm or around it that are naturally insect repellents.
  • Literally covering the plants, like small vegetables, during intense pest migrations.
  • Rotating planting locations for various crops in the farm to break the cycle of pest breeding.
  • Use insect traps.
  • Use organic pesticides.
The principle in effective pest control without harm to the farm environs is not the total elimination of insects and pests but to effectively manage them. Nature is designed to be beneficial to us. Instead of destroying it, we should learn to go by its natural flow.

Organic Home Gardening

Organic home gardening is possible with every house hold, even one without a backyard. As long as you have organic fertilizers your organic home gardening will pay off. And here are some vital tips for a surefire harvest.

In Your Kitchen or Garage

You can have your mini garden in your kitchen or garage. Or have it hanging on your wall fence. Try hanging pots in a kitchen corner or pots in shelves of several layers high. The "pots" can be halved plastic containers or painted cans to make them look presentable in your kitchen. Put good soil in them which you'd replace every 3 months. What soil should you use?

"Soil" Compost

Make compost fertilizer or "soil." Put all your veggie, chicken, or fish wastes (even chicken dung) in in a container, put some soil, and then spray with BIOnix Max 1. Cover the top with some soil. The top soil should be thick enough to prevent odor leakage. Produce this mixture: 10ml is to a liter of water. Then spray it over a half drum of your "soil" compost.

After 7 days, spray it with a liter of water. Another 7 days, spray again with water. After that, use this as your soil for your organic home gardening. Put them in your pots and plant your veggie sprouts on them. Spray the leaves with 5ml Nano BIOnix mixed into a liter of water during these periods: the first 15th or 20th day after planting, the 35th day, and then the 50th day. Remember, don't spray during flowering time. Amazing results should be evident after a week of spraying, And that makes your organic home gardening awesome. Show it off to your friends and neighbors, and they're likely to do the same and buy the BIOnix fertilizer or your "soil" compost from you. That's added profits. 

I can imagine that soon they'd be buying more of your super "soil" compost. Yes, you can make a business of it. Compost your discarded veggie peels and leaves and chicken and fish innards with BIOnix Max 1 (don't forget the thick top spoil covering). After 2 weeks, your "soil" fertilizer is ready for use. Sell them by the kilo (I suggest P20 to P30 a kilo) so folks around you can start their own organic home gardening. Your BIOnix Max 1 capitalization is only P1.65 per liter.

Micro Organism for Composting

From this...
Composting is a practical way of getting rid of waste stalks or rice stalk leftovers.

But it's not recommendable to burn dried leaves or stalks or even garbage because this process depletes the ozone layer and adds to the global warning problem, to the disadvantage of farmers eventually.

Furthermore, burning dried farm plant debris on the soil does more harm for the soil than good. Some folks believe that the burning practice makes the soil more fertile. Nothing can be farther from the truth. It's more soil acidity.

What we should do with this trash is to compost them. And we need micro organism for composting.

And what better way of doing this than the TRENZ-Purplenetworx way? this!
For instance, after harvesting rice, farmers dump the leftover stalks in a heap. Instead of doing that, they may scatter them all over the field and apply a little water and spray BIOnix Max 1 dissolved in water over the stalks and leaves and other discarded plants or weeds. If irrigation is a problem, than just spray them with the BIOnix Max 1 and water concoction--though this may take longer to compost. 

Micro organism for composting, especially with BIOnix Max1, takes only 7 days to turn everything into a soil-like form. Without Max1 it will take at least a month to decompose discarded rice stalk, weeds, and dried plants. To quicken the process, apply BIOnix Max 1 and turn them into almost powder form in just a week. And that's free organic fertilizer for your farm! Just spray a little more BIOnix Max1 with water over it, let it seat for 14 days (spraying with water every 7th day) and you can start planting your palay shoots or vegetables. Micro organism for composting can augment farmers' profits this way.

Composting Garbage

Others use micro organism to decompose biodegradable garbage that has been ground into bits. Just spray over the micro organism on the trash heap (some micro organism eliminate the foul odor of the garbage) and after a few weeks the trash is turned into a powder-like substance ready to be used as compost fertilizer. Some people further treat this with more micro organism to turn them into a more potent organic fertilizer.

This is usually done as a community project spearheaded by an LGU (local government unit), providing extra income to the local government and jobs for the community constituents. This should be implemented in the Philippine countryside and even in cities and remedy or alleviate the garbage problem. That's the power of micro organism for composting.

Powerful Micro Organism

Does your organic fertilizer have powerful micro organism?

Most organic fertilizers out there in the Philippine market are compost, which may or may not have micro organism. Their mineral content is likewise hit or miss. But it's vital that an organic fertilizer has micro organism, and lots of it.

The way Philippine soil has been acidic for ages, what it terribly needs is micro organism. Yeah, foliar applications (spraying the plants) are nice, but they're nothing without land preparation. Land preps are crucial and determine success. Because basically, plants still rely heavily on the soil, or a foundation, be it water or coconut husk based. And in land prep, powerful micro organism is needed. 

Micro organisms can heal the land, make it super fertile again and normalize acidity. How do they do this? Nope, they do not "eat away" chemical fertilizers left in the soil or "cure" the land like some medicine. The logic is that, if you use micro organism in organic soil fertilizers, you stop using chemical fertilizers. What's the point of applying the former while still using the latter? Well, in BIO chemical farming, both are applied. But such can only be deemed practical with the idea that gradually, the land is being converted for full organic farming. Going BIO chemical all the way for life is senseless. It should eventually end up with full organic farming.

Anyway, when you stop using chemical fertilizers and start using powerful micro organism, the land gets rehabilitated and healed eventually. Your plants do not suffer withdrawal symptoms because the micro organism and organic fertilizers are there. The micro organism multiply fast to cover the whole land and prepares the minerals in the soil (and from the organic fertilizers) to make them easily absorbed by plants. You see, no matter if tons of minerals are put in the soil, without micro organism they're nothing. Plants will not be able to absorb them. This is what happens when your soil is sick with acidity and you keep pouring chemical fertilizers on it. Yes, there are minerals there, but they're useless to your plants due to marginalized micro organism presence.

Aside from this, micro organism "fixates" nitrogen from the air and applies it for plant absorption. Wonderful, isn't it? Hence, your foliar organic fertilizer should also have them to fixate or catch nitrogen in the air while they're on leaves and branches. That's added nitrogen power for your plants! Then you get better plant health, crops, and harvest. That's better profits! Get it?
