Organic Liquid Fertilizer R&D | Fish and Soy Fungus

Organic Liquid Fertilizer R&D | Fish and Soy Fungus

After filtering and separating the to and bottom levels of precipitation, the top portion of the fermented liquid fertilizers of fish and soy were placed in 97 parts water, with 3 parts (3%) FLF. After 24 hours there was no change in the buckets (fungus showing) But after 48 hours there was a change. The images below were taken 48 hours after the mix. On the top of the solution there was fungus growth. . Image below left is fungus in fish solution (49hrs).  Image on right is the soy solution (49hrs). click to enlarge . . Both images below are close ups of soy solution fungus click to enlarge . . Eight hours later (57hr), there was a lot more growth. . fish solution 57hrs closer look. click for a better view, closer up . Soy solution close ups....

Protocol | Liquid Fertilizer Production R&D

Selection, Fermentation, Filtering, Extraction, Formulation, Field Test, Packaging, Research and Development is not only the most important aspect of new products, it is the most rewarding as well. In regards to Live Organic Liquid Fertilizers we have 7 stages that must be functioning optimally before going to market. The abovesteps are done in the order listed in the early stages of development. But many times a loop back must be done in order to correct or improve a later step. You might say something like” back to the drawing board” to describe what I mean. . Selection of Plants A bit of pre-research is initially done to see which plants might be good candidates for a particular fertilizer’s “job”. For example, when creating a growth fertilizer for the initial stages of growing a larger amount of nitrogen will be needed, not to mention a list of other major and minor elements. Fish and soya will have a lot of proteins that, when broken down by microorganisms will give us this needed NO2-, nitrate. . Fermentation by Beneficial Microorganisms All Organic Fertilizers are made by organic technology. As are many state of the art medicines, only microorganisms can produce these intricate molecules. You might say that the needed nitrogen is a simple molecule and I would have to agree. But being produced by a bacteria not only gives us a special form of nitrogen that the plant can absorb, it is produced in a sustainable low energy method. Beyond the Nitrate needed, microorganisms, will also produce antibiotics, phenols and metabolites that only… only they can formulate. The organisms that are used to make the bio-reactor work are classified as Beneficial Microorganisms or BMs. There are basically two groups of microorganisms, BM and pathogens. Very few BMs will turn on the harmony and become pathogenic . It is a wonder of nature that the two groups are so distinct. Most BM’s work as a colony or group, in unison to create a healthy aura around a plant. . Filtering The Fermentation Filtering is merely a mechanical method, to separate the larger undigested particles from the well reacted bio-ferment. There are simple and sophisticated methods to accomplish this. But to keep the manufacturing foot print at a minimum we try to use a simple method that uses simple filtering after a lengthy “curing time”. This curing allows the bio-ferment to complete its organic process. . Extraction of the Final Components...

Organic Liquid Fertilizer R&D | Extraction

Organic Liquid Fertilizer R&D | Extraction

To begin understanding the possible extraction techniques that could be employed on the various FLF (Fermented Liquid Fertilizer) products, a test was set up using FLF and different concentrations of H2O. Test Description; . Image #1,   0 hrs The first image, 0 hrs, shows 4 different sets of flasks with 4 flasks in each set. Two different products are being tested, fish and soya ferments. The Top and Bottom of each product was used. Top and Bottom refer to the product being filtered with a fine poly-fiber filter, then let to settle for at least 12 hours. The products separated into two distinct parts, Top and Bottom. The flasks each can hold 150ml. The 1st flasks in each of the 4 sets was placed 30ml of the FLT. The second flask 60ml, the 3rd flask 90mm and the 4th flask contains 120ml. Fish Top; 4.4 pH Fish Bot; 4.35 pH Soya Top; 4.15 pH Soya Bot; 4.12 pH The ppm of ions was more than our Hanna instrument could read at 2000ppms, in all products NOTE; The screen being used for filtering is a cerographic screen called 180 mesh. This is the finest mesh available in the cerigraphic industry. The mesh is extremely durable and easy to clean. . Image #2, .25 hrs The flasks were then topped off to its full capacity of 150ml with dechlorinated H2O, with 5.9pH, containing 29 ppm of ionized particles. So the percentages of each product in relation to H2O was; flasks FLF H2O first 20% 80% second 40% 60% third 60% 40% fourth 80% 20% . Image #3, 2 hrs two hours after initiation for test the FLF are almost settled. . Image #4, 12 hrs Twelve hours into the test there is no more settling. . Image #5, 72 hrs Seventy two hours after initiation it looks as though the soy top liquid went back into solution…? . Image #1; test start; 0 hrs. . Image #2; .25 hrs after test initiation . Image #3; 2 hrs after test initiation . Image #4; 12 hrs after test initiation . Image #5; 72 hrs after test initiation . Image #5; 72 hrs after test initiation close up . The below images are a mix made of top precipitation of fish and soy at 3% in water. Notice the way the soy was mixing in the first image. The second image was taken a few minutes later, comparing the two solutions. ....
