No smell, no flies, no cleaning, no problems pig pens, a.k.a. Inoculated Deep Litter Systems, were the topic of the May 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i meeting and potluck. For over 5 years over a dozen operations have proven why this is the NRCS best practice for swine waste management plans, because there’s nothing to clean up! All the waste is digested right on the living floor reducing labor and eliminating the need for water.
A fun chart to show how plants are related to the biological ratios.
For instance, if I go into a thriving forest, a natural grove of trees, there will be 800 parts fungus to 500 parts bacteria by biomass present. So when I go to plant a grove of fruit trees, I want to match the forest soil biology for the roots to be comfortable. If I grow grass beneath my trees, the biology will be around 10 parts bacteria and zero parts fungus, this is not compatible! Stress is a natural result.
The remedy offered by CHO IMO#4 is concentrated fungal spores to jumpstart your field fungal ratio, go from zero to 800 in 4 weeks! Your plants will be more comfortable and visibly healthy in a soil environment that matches their native habitat.
