Also, instead of chemical fertilizers, we use various soil enhancers such as vermicompost, animal manure, carbonized rice hull, and other organic fertilizers.
After attending the organic farming seminar conducted by the Department of Agriculture in Palawan, we have been making our own organic fertilizers for our moringa farm. I have already made a separate blog post about how to make carbonized rice hull, so now I am going to share with you some of the organic fertilizers that we make and use to provide more nutrients for our moringa plants.
|Here are our workers making fish amino acid (FAA). FAA is a foliar fertilizer which is rich in nitrogen and other essential minerals. We use any available fish and fish innards and combine them with brown sugar or molasses.|
|Here, they are making fermented fruit juice (FFJ). FFJ increases moringa plant nutrition and speeds up its growth. FFJ is made up of sweet fruits combined with brown sugar or molasses.|
Once these natural organic fertilizers get fermented, we mix them in water and use them when watering our plants.
