Bringing it all together (Everything I have taught so far), Part 1

I AM NOT A SCIENTIFIC FARMER AT ALL !!!!!!! THE POINT OF THIS IS TO COMBAT HUNGER AND EDUCATE.

So we have learned how to make IMO, OHN, FPJ, LABS, CALPHOS, BASAL AND FOLIAR FERTILIZERS, VERMICASTING/COMPOSTING.

Now let’s start applying them. Let’s setup our land and let Mother Nature do the work for us, shall we ?

SEEDS AND SEEDLING TREATMENT

For beginners most of the modern crops of seeds are weak considering low germination rates and bad production as well.

So what we will do is this:

  1. Mix
    3 Liters water mix with
    2 tsp coco vinegar mix with
    2 tsp FPJ/ 2 tsp OHN
  2. Place seeds in a net bag or wire basket.
  3. Soak seeds for 4-8 hours. The slower the seeds germinate, the longer they should be soaked.
  4. PLANT IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THEY CAN DRY !!!!

The seeds will develop thick cotyledons.

A cotyledon is a significant part of the embryo within the seed of a plant. Upon germination, the cotyledon usually becomes the embryonic first leaves of a seedling. The number of cotyledons present is one characteristic used by botanists to classify the flowering plants (angiosperms). (Definition credited from Science Daily).

This will make your seeds immune to worms. They will also have good root development and make your plants more tolerable to diseases.

Before transplanting seedlings DO NOT WATER FOR 2 DAYS.

Transplanting

In 3 liters of water mix

2 tsp coconut wine
2 tsp FPJ/2 tsp OHN

Soak seedlings for 15 seconds then immediately transplant. Sprinkle the remaining mixture on plants after they are transplanted.

Next, we will talk IMO application and optimal soil creation !!!!!
