Increased sugar levels and growth stimulation Another major benefit of wood vinegar is that it appears to assist the enzymes and microbes which facilitate plant cell growth and other useful reactions. While this mechanism is unclear scientifically, many researchers claim that spraying wood vinegar makes plants take root more firmly, helps leaves grow larger and fuller, counteracts excessive nitrogen, stimulated the metabolism of plants and raises sugar levels. It is assumed that plants are favourable affected by trace elements in the wood vinegar is decomposed through the photosynthetic process. Spraying wood vinegar diluted 500 to 1000 times an improve the taste of fruits that are not very sweet due to weak photosynthesis resulting from a lack of sun or poor soil. This effect is assumed to be due to wood vinegar’s role as a coenzyme. It is also thought to be related to the presence of esters in wood vinegar. Valerianic acid ethyl, for example, benefits the growth of radish and of Chinese cabbage. Such esters in wood vinegar as methyl acetate and methyl formate also have a strong growth acceleration effect on plants. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia #agricultureglobal

Wood vinegar complements Agricultural Chemicals With respect to diseases of stems and leaves, many researchers claim that wood vinegar both has a direct germicidal effect, and an indirect, prophylactic effect through changing the biota on the leaf surface. When leaves are temporarily acidified, it prevents the increase of germs. However, the most conspicuous benefit of spraying wood vinegar on leaves, is the vinegar’s ability to strengthen plants’ natural resistances to diseases and to increase the permeability of agricultural chemicals. Many researchers point out that leaves on which wood vinegar is sprayed turn glossier and greener. They postulate that this is because certain kinds of esters in wood vinegar increase the levels of chlorophyll and stimulate photosynthesis. It is also presumed that they assist in the synthesis of sugars and amino acids. As a result, in addition to increasing leaf vitality and thus resistance to disease, wood vinegar can also actually improve the taste of agricultural produce. In addition, wood vinegar increases the permeability of agricultural chemicals into leaves. Such chemical usually dissolve most easily in acids with pH value of 4 to 5. Therefore, when they are sprayed together with wood vinegar, they become more effective. In this way, the quantity of agricultural chemicals used, and the frequency with which they are used, can often be reduced by half. However, alkaline agricultural chemicals cannot be mixed with wood vinegar because they react negatively with the acids in the vinegar. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia #agricultureglobal

Bacilli with spores (including actinomyces) and many kinds of moulds grow rapidly as they feed on the nutrients in wood vinegar. Within a week of spraying wood vinegar on soil, the surface and inside of the soil are covered with white moulds. Some germs and useful microbes (antibacterial microbes) are resistant to acids, other are not. Spraying wood vinegar on soil generally tends to raise the density of useful microbes such as bacilli, actinomyces and Trichoderma. These are antibacterial microbes which are parasitic to Corticium rolfsii Curzi, seedling damping-off bacillus (Rhizoctonia, Pythium), Sclerotinia, and so on. Although wood vinegar usually is able to reduce soil diseases through its ability to destroy harmful microbes and encourage the growth of helpful ones, occasionally there are not sufficient useful microbes or there are too many acid proof germs in the original soil. In these cases, it is important to apply compost along with the wood vinegar. The compost introduces such useful microbes. Such changes in the biota or microbes not only inhibits diseases of the soil, but also helps plants take root well and grow strong. Wood vinegar also kills clubroot eelworms. Though the reason is not clear, it is presumed that wood vinegar not only has a toxic effect on the eelworms themselves, but also increases the numbers of the eelworms’ predators. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia #agricultureglobal

In high concentrations, wood vinegar has a strong germicidal effect due to its high acidity and the presence of germicidal ingredients such as methanol and phenol. The microbes first killed by wood vinegar are bacilli which have no spores, and some hyphomycetes which are weak in acid. However, when wood vinegar is diluted 20 times, it greatly increases the concentration of microbes. It is believed that this is primarily due to the effects of the acetic acid in wood vinegar. Plants and microbes produce a substance named acetyl coenzyme from acetic acid. Acetyl coenzyme itself is then converted into various substances which facilitate the growth of plants and microbes. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia #agricultureglobal

#dailycontent 7 Used in moderation is best. It is important that wood vinegar not to be used in too concentrated form. In this sense, Wood Vinegar is like vitamins for humans: repeated use of concentrated doses is not more effective, and may even be more harmful, than using the prescribed amount. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia

#dailycontent 6 Details about how the various substances in wood vinegar work together are scant. For example, although acetic acid, a major component of wood vinegar does have beneficial germicidal effect when sprayed on plants, wood vinegar itself is more effective than acetic acid on its own. Another beneficial effects on wood vinegar on soils cannot be explained simply by the temporary lowering of pH. Wood vinegar appears to facilitate cell growth and especially to serve as a catalyst for the growth of various enzymes and microbes that surround the processes of photosynthesis, nutrient absorption and cell growth. Moreover, wood vinegar has small quantities of various kinds of permeable ingredients such as alcohol, ketone, and aldehyde. It is easily absorbed into plants. It also dissolves agricultural chemicals, making them easier to absorb. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia

#dailycontent 5 Wood vinegar consists of variety of ingredients resulting from pyrolysis. This mix of ingredients result in effectiveness. Unlike agricultural chemicals which rely on one or two “active ingredient”, in wood vinegar, various ingredients are interweaves with each other. If wood vinegar were to be compared to medicine, it could be called a herbal medicine. Its strength does not come from a single ingredient, but form the multiple effect of various ingredient. It is this combination of ingredients that gives wood vinegar its multiple beneficial effects, including the ability to control diseases and pests, to increase microbes, and to facilitate root growth. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia

Let the amending begin!! We’ve been getting amazing results now that we test the soil after every production. With help from @growru and our grow team our soil is on point! As a hunter/fisherman, forager, fruit/vegetables gardener, and life long farmer it’s important to me to have some kind of relationship with my food. I feel the same way with anything I consume and especially cannabis! Here @millenniumgreenorganic we meet all #cleangreencertified standards and more. P.S. I’m high on mushrooms so I hope this makes sense! . . . #amending #soilprep #notill #soilamendments #livingsoil #i502 #tacomaweed #soilbeds #responsibleagriculture #pnwcannabis #craftcannabis #premiumcannabis #topshelfcannabis

This pile was 6’ tall when I started it up. This may be the 6th fire of this size since I last emptied out the fire pit. I always put the coals out with water and only empty it out when it’s 6” below grade to yield 3-6 cu ft wheelbarrows of charcoal that I turn into #biochar by simply mixing with my composted manures. This fire pit has a 60” ID and is dug as a 42” deep inverted cone. I last emptied it months ago. Each fire with 1” diameter or smaller branches lasts only a few hours with the majority burning in the first 15 minutes. When I start with an empty pit, the conical shape allows everything to burn in less than 30 minutes. The porosity of wood charcoal provides more surface area than mineral soil on which soil biology will live. Charcoal as biochar is host to fungal, bacterial, and other single and even multicellular microfauna such as nematodes in the soil. It does not break down into gaseous CO2 or CO as other forms of soil organic matter. Rather, carbon stays locked in the soil as charcoal playing host to soil biota and acts as a sort of sponge for plant essential nutrients; preventing those nutrients from leaching out of the soil and allowing plant roots and fungal mycelium to mine nutrients including H and O as water. . #carbonsequestration #soilamendments #soilorganicmatter

FINALLY planted some Tomato plants. 409 plants, planted 20” apart, soil amended with Epsom salt and “Healthy Garden”(only a TBSP) a Dairy Doo Family product. I planted into a Vetch patch that I had mowed down. I left 3 ft pathways for the vetch to regrow. It spreads quickly. I know I preserved a bunch of the biology. I saw so many Nitrogen fixing nodules, thanks for pointing those out to me Farmer Andy, they made me smile all day! I’m excited for this Soil I’ve been working on. Beans—>Oats, Vetch, Peas—-> winter Dairy Doo Compost and Rock Salt application—> Spring Vetch regrowth. I tilled not to deep and only what I needed to plant tomatoes. Did I mention this patch of earth excites me?! I have but a long way to go to be fully planted... but today, finally... was one heck of a start. At peak I had 5 wonderful helpers and 2 dogs on the planting crew. 26 hours of total labor to make today happen. THANK YOU Nikki, Cindy, Nicole, Emily and Alex. You all earned all the dollars today, great job. I could not have done any of that without y’all. Thanks for getting this thing growing, it means the world that support comes out. #localfood #michiganfarm #soilhealth #soilhealthmatters #tomatofarming #tomatofarm # #covercrop #covercrops #soilamendments

Notes on soil and mulch: “Soil separates” are the particle size of the soil (1. Sand- largest 2. Silt-medium 3. Clay- smallest). “Soil texture” is the %’s of the 3 soil separates within a soil. For California native plants, having the most natural soil possible is usually preferable and limit any amendments until you really know your soil’s condition. Perhaps conduct a soil test to find out what you’re dealing with. Also, soil can actually be healed! Mulching helps control weeds, allows soil to breath, and slowly releases nutrients. Usually you’ll be fine with just adding a 3 inches of mulch with Cal natives. There are several different types of mulch, first find out what is appropriate for your *plant community. There is “organic” and “inorganic” types of mulch. Communities that require inorganic mulches (boulders, gravel, sand): Coastal strand, Grassland, Riparian, Desert. Plant communities that require organic mulches (shredded redwood bark): Coastal sage scrub, Chaparral, Oak woodland, Redwood forest. A side note that often gets overlooked is there are certain types of native bees that like to nestle into top soil. When we blanket our entire yard with mulch, that’s detrimental to another vital pollinator. Try only covering the necessary areas. Lastly, if you or your gardener finishes maintenance with a leaf blower, be very careful not to blow away that precious top soil! Always blow back into the yard. *Check out previous post for info on plant communities. . #plantcommunities #plantcommunity #soilscience #soilseparates #soiltexture #clay #silt #sand #loam #organicmaterial #mulch #inorganic #organic #landscape #landscapedesign #design #californianative #californianativeplants #plants #savethebees #killyourlawn #gonative #gilia #filmphotography #soilamendments #amendments #saveyoursoil #shreddedredwoodbark

Soil amendments added at the lake garden. My helper and I added 3 different kinds of manure, ground egg shells, wood ash, worm castings and peat moss for water retention. I smiled to myself when my daughter’s friend came by and asked her to play and she preferred to putter in the garden with me. #coldclimategardening #soilamendments #growwhatyoueat

Perennial peanut is a favorite of mine and coming to the rescue during this summer heat!! Perennial peanut is a versatile groundcover that blooms all summer long with beautiful yellow flowers. It can be planted by itself or as a groundcover and is used as a grass alternative. The perennial peanut helps resist nematodes, pathogens, and is drought-tolerant. Of course, I am using @mirimichigreen for planting success🙌 sustainability at @strazcenter #berootedfl #tampabaylandscapes #landscaping #regenerativelandscapes #soilmatters #soilhealth #soilamendments #hillsborough #pinellas #pasco #tampabay #biochar #compost #perennialpeanut #groundcover #downtowntampa #tampariverwalk

Just a few pics of the garden progress. Doesn't look like much, but I am hoping it will fill out more in the coming months. Lost most of my seedlings to pests and the over abundance of rain this spring. One of these days maybe I will get the hang of this food growing thing. Even if I don't, I can still enjoy making compost and playing with the worms. #permaculturegarden #gardening #compost #hotcompost #soilhealth #soilamendments #worms

Using EMERGION soil amendment, also called soil conditioner, helps improve plant growth and health. EMERGION reduces compaction, aerating the soil to allow water and nutrients to move more easily through it and reach plant roots. Helps retain moisture and helps maintain the correct PH balance. #soilconditioner #soil #soilamendments #amendments #orchard #orchards #appleorchard #orchardbeach #farmers #farmer #agricultura #plumfield_farm #waagriculture #agriculturalsoil #farming #emergion #agricultor #agroquímicos #agronegocios #agronegócio #mejoradordesuelos #agricola #agribrokers #agricultor

Before & After: A significant transformation by Shane Kolb of United Landscaping in Lexington, KY. Shane was proactive and put CarbonizPN down in January for this lawn that has struggled because of the large trees, no air flow, and shade. Then he came back and power seeded with fescue and used starter fertilizer. Soil health and the right inputs made a huge difference!
