How to Apply our Liquid Organic Fertiliser
Organic Worm Extract Fertiliser
Wormtec’s Liquid Organic Worm Extract Fertiliser is a highly concentrated liquid solution containing natural beneficial biology and plant available nutrients and minerals. This is a totally natural organic plant food but also containing nutrient and living biology all in one easy to apply liquid. Worm extract has no negative impact on the environment.
Worm Extract is a Living Product
Worm extract is a living product it is full of dormant micro-organisms that are ready to wake up and starting to repair degraded soils and start the job of cycling nutrient and minerals into organic forms for the plants or crop to consume.
Please store your worm extract out of the sun in a nice cool place, after you receive your worm extract loosen the lid to allow air to enter the drum as these are aerobic organisms.
Never Allow Food Source to Enter Drum
As worm extract fertiliser is biology based we have a unique means of getting the biology to go to sleep or to go into dormancy this allows us to store our product, if you allow a food source like fish, kelp or molasses just to name a few to enter your drum the biology will wake up and consume all the oxygen in the drum and then die, leaving you with a very smelly container.
Activating Worm Extract
Worm extract contains mostly a dormant biologically component that, when applied with a food source, becomes active and starts colonising your soil, plants or crop and starts rebuilding you soil and plant health.
To fast track the activity of the biology I add a small amount of fish and kelp powder to the worm extract at application time this food source wakes up the dormant organisms so they can start the job of rebuilding the health of the soil.
You can apply worm extract without a food source and the biology will come out of dormancy when it is stimulated by the plants or climatic conditions.
Never add a food source into your worm extract drum always add the food source to the spray tank or watering can, if you add the food source to your drum you will activated all the biology inside the drum and any leftover extract will go off and be wasted
When to Apply
I prefer to apply our organic worm extract fertiliser early morning or late afternoon so the ultra violet rays from the sun doesn’t sterilize the beneficial biology in our extract fertiliser, if it’s raining or the soil and plants are wet you can apply at any time as the organisms will use this available moisture to colonize the plant and soil while at the same time be protected from the suns radiation.
Application of Worm Extract for Agriculture
Our worm extract can be applied via normal agricultural spray equipment but please increase the jet size so you are not harming the biology at application time, plus the use of a diaphragm pump is recommended both soil drench and foliar applications are efficient at getting the product applied.
I only spray worm extract at around 20 psi very low pressure as you don’t want to squash them with pressure if they hit the ground or a tree under high pressure
Application of Worm Extract home gardener
Wormtec Worm Extract is applied as a liquid spray or by watering can onto plant leaf surfaces or as a soil drench to re-apply all the beneficial micro-organisms and micro nutrients that your soil and plant require. Worm extract will assist in improve the soil by returning nutrients and micro-organisms back into the soil increasing soil fertility and plant health. Worm extract, helps retain moisture so less water is required while feeding your plants. Our worm extract, is a concentrate so can be diluted with water up to 30 to 1 so it is very economical to use
We apply it to your grounds for you
This is a totally new product and service only available on the Queensland Gold Coast and surrounding areas.
Fertiliser Application Service Rates
Soil fertility is a microbe numbers game, if you have low microbe numbers you wont have any worm activity in your soil as worms eat soil microbes, so no worms is your first indicator of low soil fertility and soil problems, so in this case you would apply at a higher rate than if you had good microbial activity.
If you have good worm numbers and your wishing to fertilise with our worm extract and further improve your soil I would start at around 20 litres per hectare, if your soil is really sad with no worms and microbial activity I would go at 50 per hectare as its a numbers game, the sooner you build microbe numbers the quicker you will start to see results.
What Else Do We Need to Understand?
You need to know your soil PH levels as this has a large influence on microbes, and you also need organic matter in the soil, feed the soil to feed the microbes that then feed this to your plants.
Why I Add fish and Kelp to Worm Extract
With every 1000 litres of wormtec worm extract i add around 700 ml of organic fish and 100 ml of kelp powder now this food source now stimulates the dormant biology in our product but also the dormant biology contained in your own soils, this food source also stimulates your plants or pasture grass whatever you are treating with a small foliar feeding to stimulate growth.
If your looking to add extra food sources to the spray tank for fertilising make sure there organic so they are not having a negative influence on our microbes in our worm extract.
