Baikal – microbiological fertilizer
Microbiological fertilizer «Baikal EM-1 U» concentrate – used for pre-sowing seed treatment, seedling watering, root and foliar fertilization of crops, preparation of EM compost.
Dissolve 30 ml of Baikal EM-1 U concentrate in 3 l of warm (up to 40 ° С), non-chlorinated, settled water. Add nutrient medium and 3 tablespoons of sugar to the solution. Mix thoroughly. Cover with a lid as little air as possible. The resulting solution is kept in a dark, warm (from 25 ° C to 30 ° C) place for 4-6 days. In the process of fermentation, gas, and foaming, color change, as well as slight precipitation are allowed.
The drug prepared in this way can be stored for a year, gradually consuming it.
Dilute the EM-drug in a ratio of 1: 100 (0.5 cups per bucket of water) and water the plants at a rate of 1-1.5 l/m² 1 time per week. Depending on the condition of the soil and plants can be watered more often or less often. Apply the solution while loosening the soil. The soil temperature should be in the range of 15-30°C. This treatment replaces soil disinfection.
