FISH EMULSION CONCENTRATE

WHAT IS FISH EMULSION CONCENTRATE (FEC)?

FEC is a 100% organic fertilizer composed of fermented juice of fish scraps such as gills and innards which contains enormous amount of amino acids as well as the macro element nitrogen needed by plants to sustain a healthy growth.


WHY SHOULD I USE FEC?

FEC provides the following to your crops:

  •  high levels of nitrogen and sulfur which result in increased soil microbial population and increased nutrient uptake
  •  most of the plants nutritional needs without causing environmental harm


HOW DO I USE FEC?

For use as drench fertilizer:

Mix 2 tbsp of FEC, 2 tbsp of LactoBac LAS-1 (also available at our farm) with 1 liter of water and irrigate on roots for 10 successive days in a month.

For use as foliar and vegetable fertilizer:

Mix 1 tbsp of FEC, 1 tbsp of LactoBac LAS-1 (also available at our farm) with 1 liter of water and spray on plants every 3 days during early morning or late afternoon until harvest. ■
