Using the chart here and scaling it up for the correct volume and you are good to go.
Premixing what we call the “Maintenance Solution” of 1 part OHN, 2 parts BRV and 2 parts FPJ, then adding that as a base of 20 mL per gallon, can really simplify the amount of jars you have to open to make a simple mixture.
August 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i Meeting in Hilo. Natural Farming Solutions was the topic discussed and the Maintenance solution recipe was given as 1 part OHN, 2 parts FPJ and 2 parts Vinegar (Banana preferred) combined, then diluted 20mL per gallon of water and sprayed every 7-11 days on plants optimally around sunset or used as a drench to clean up pollutants by revitalizing beneficial soil micro biology.
Our June 2015 meeting covered microscopic soil analysis of indigenous micro organisms, IMO. We discovered and identified bacteria, fungus and nematodes. I brought in my 400x microscope to easily evaluate soil fertility based on biology. We recorded this lesson on how to use a microscope to validate your natural farming.
We are essentially looking for beneficial fungus. Aerobic, oxygen loving, soil building life forms, beneficial fungus, can be identified by looking for ‘tubes’ greater than 3.5 micrometers wide and darker in color. There should be one beneficial fungus per view when soil is around 600:600 bacteria:fungus ratio, ideal for most crops.
Identifying this beneficial fungus is a key indicator of natural farming success. The idea is to get these organisms to dwell deep within our soil. Bringing life and oxygen deep into the Earth and allowing plants lots of room to grow roots. Beneficial fungus harbor beneficial bacteria and healthy levels of nematodes. Good thing they are easy to see and increase with natural farming solutions!
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.
