Amino Fertilizers: New BIO Chemical Protocol for Rice on Acidic Soil

Organic L-amino acid fertilizers applied to rice on a very acidic soil has a protocol to follow. For instance, it has been recently found out that agricultural tilled soil in the Philippines is very acidic, to say the least. Most L-amino acid fertilizers, like BIONIX, can perform excellently as a stand-alone fertilizer under normal soil conditions. Yields attain phenomenal results.

However, it's a very different thing when the soil is too acidic due to years of chemical fertilizer application. If we want to go BIO chemical farming, we need to follow this protocol:

Whatever chemical fertilizer you have been using, cut the amount in half per hectare and mix well with a potent amino fertilizer, like BIONIX Max 1, or BIOMax1. If you use 6 sacks of chemical fertilizer per hectare, just use 3 plus your bottle of BIONIX Max1.

BIO Chemical Power Soil Preparation

MAXIMIZING YOUR SOIL BIOCHEMCIAL CAPACITY. Mix 330 cc of BIOnixMAX 1 (it is absolutely non chemical, all organic) with each bag of 50-kilo chemical fertilizer. Apply on the soil prior to planting rice shoots. Pour this mix all over your farm. This is your concoction ratio per hectare:

RATIO: 330ml BIONIX Max 1: 50-kilo bag of chem fertilizer.

This prepares your soil and neutralizes its acidity, the same time that it fertilizes it. After your land preparation, start planting your palay shoots or vegetable plants.

According to plant experts, any plant grown organically gets rid of all weeds eventually. It also develops a natural insecticide property by making itself unattractive to pests and insects. Organic farming method that uses intermitent irrigation (not submerging palay plant in water but just keeping the soil wet and a bit muddy) gets rid of snails. With full-organic farming, you can benefit from the following:
  1. Soil neutralizer
  2. Soil fertilizer
  3. Snail remedy
  4. Weed remedy.
  5. With natural pesticide property
PLUS: It's a crop booster!

Then, after 15 to 20 days of planting the shoots, spray the plants with 1 liter of BIONIX in 200 liters water per hectare. Repeat it on day 30 or 40 and then on day 60 or 70. This will boost your crop size, quantity, and quality miraculously like never before. It lessens dependence on chemicals and expense for the same.

Seed Soaking: Getting Rid of Ipa

When the 14 days are almost over, start soaking your seeds. Soak seeds in this mixture: 20ml BIOnix Max 1 and 20 ml. BIOnix Max 2 in 20 liters water. Soak for 12 to 20 hours. Get rid of seeds that float and use the ones that remain soaked. Seeds that floated will yield empty palays (ipa). The ones that remain soaked will yield the best yields. Furthermore, seeds soaked in BIONIX Max 1 and 2 perform better while growing and helps for a better yield.

After the seed soaking test, pour or spray the soaking mixture on your farm. 

After 12 to 20 hours of soaking, start planting your seeds. When they have grown, plant the rice shoots on your land prepared farm. When they have recovered and are standing (about one hand-width tall, usually after 15 to 20 days) spray plant with pure BIONIX (1:200 liters of water or 80 ml to 16 liters of water). You may add our Silver Booster for strengthening the young plants, keeping them healthy, and increasing yield.

Then, after 30 to 45 days, spray the same concoction (80ml to 16 liters water). You may add our Red Booster for enhancing plant color and rice taste. Then, after 60 yo 70 days, apply the same concoction (80ml to 16 liters water) and you may add our Orange Booster for bigger and better quality yield.

Just keep up with this protocol to lessen acidity in the soil. This will gradually heal your soil from being too acidic. However, later on you should start converting your farm to full organic (with zero chemical usage). We have a different protocol for this and will be the subject of a later article.

In view of the Department of Agriculture thrust in phasing out all chemical fertilizers by 2013, we need to practice full organic farming now. BIO organic farming and protocol to follow soon on this blog.


  1. nice post. Now you can use online directory services for bulk organic fertilizers import & export business.

  2. My province are one of the most production of vegetables especially expensive crop in Philippines, This organic fertilizer can use for onions, garlic, ginger and other same types of crops. I am very interested for this subject please response thanks.
