    Korean Natural Farming Methods/Techniques

    Lately ive been getting into ORganic Growing,CEC,No-Till, and Korean Natural Farming Methods/Teks. I just love the thought of not buying Bottled or ORganic Nutes from Stores. Being totally self sustainable is what I hope to achieve some day, or atleast close to it..

    This thread is mainly going to have all the different methods/Teks that I try from Master Chos Books on Korean Natural Farming. Such as (OHN) Oriental Herbal Nutrients,(FFJ) Fresh Fruit Juice Ferments,(FPJ) Fresh Plant Juice Ferments,(IMO) Indigenous Micro Organisms,Mineral Water, Fermented Ocean Salt Water, and A couple others.

    I want to be able to talk with others about these methods and for others to see how its made, and if they actually work or not. I will post up most of the information of the things that I try directly from the copy of Master Chos Book when I either get to them, or If somebody ask. As its hard to actually even find his books.

    Natural Farming uses methods that observe the laws of nature and utilizes natural materials and products. It is based on the principle of interdependence among all living things. It aims to have a nurturing impact on the environment, in sharp contrast to the disadvantageous effects that often accompany modernized and commercialized agriculture. The observance of the natural cycle and environment-friendly agricultural practices applied in a modern setting refreshes the established perspectives on farming and provides an alternative to technology-intensive agriculture..


    Natural Farming produces a good yield when the land cultivated has an excellent soil condition for crops. Microorganisms play an important role in making soil good for growing plants. These microorganisms can also be collected and cultured.

    Natural Farming promotes the use of Indigenous Microorganisms (IMOs). The microorganisms that have been living in the local area for a long time are best for farming because they are very powerful and effective. They have survived and can survive the extreme climatic conditions of the local environment much better than artificially produced microorganisms, which are cultured in some foreign or artificial environment. And since they are already available in the field, they are considered the best inputs for conditioning the land.

    Organisms that are found under the heat of the sun are largely different than those found in shaded areas such as under the bamboo trees. Dr. Cho advocates that it is better to culture microorganisms from different areas in order to collect different kinds of microorganisms (Microbial Diversity).

    Microorganisms have two major functions in farming:

    1. Microorganisms decompose complex organic compounds such as dead bodies of plants and animals and wastes into nutrients, making them easily absorbable by plants.

    2. They can create compounds such as antibiotic substances, enzymes and lactic acids that can suppress various diseases and promote healthy soil conditions.

    IMOs are used primarily to create fertile and healthy soil condition that is ideal for farming and to prevent plant diseases. In Natural Farming, IMOs are used in treatments applied to the soil in order to improve its fertility and health

    The best material that can be used in culturing IMOs is steamed rice. The rice should not be too soft or too sticky since aerobic micro organisms do not prefer to live on it. Hence, it is best to use left-over rice. In making IMOs using plastic as containers should be avoided. Containers made of Wood or Bamboo is recommended.

    How to collect IMOs

    1. A wooden box of Length 12 inches x Width 8 inches Height 4 inches is made with ½ an inch thickness wood.

    2. Fill the wooden box with steamed rice. Its moisture content will attract the indigenous microorganisms living in the local soil. Allow adequate air supply by not stuffing the rice higher than 3 inches (do not hard the rice in the box). Without sufficient supply of air, the anaerobic IMOs will get collected. Aerobic IMOs are more commonly recommended.

    3. Cover the wooden box with white plain paper (avoid news paper) and use a rubber band or thread to hold the paper to the box. Paper allows air to pass through.

    4. Mark an area 12 inches x 8 inches in the soil and excavate 2 inches of soil. Place the rice-filled wooden box in this pit, where IMOs abound, such as in a forest / field or at the site where many decomposed leaf molds are found. Cover the box with leaves.

    5. The container box or basket is placed on this set-up to protect the wooden box from stray animals.

    6. Prevent rain from getting through by covering with leaves. (use plastic sheet only if necessary during excess rains) At 20°C, it will take about 5 to 6 days to grow the microbes in the box filled with IMOs. Collection will be faster if the temperature is higher than 30°C to 35°C it will take 2 to 3 days

    7. After 3 days the rice will be covered with microorganisms. Move the IMO formed rice to a clay pot / glass jar. The IMOs thus collected is called as IMO-1.

    8. Mix jaggery with the IMO-1 in 1:1 ratio. For Eg 1 Kg of jaggery should be mixed with 1 Kg of IMO-1. This mixture of brown sugar and IMO-1 is called as IMO-2.

    **The closer the state of sugar is to nature, the better. The less process the sugar has undergone, the more effective it is. Therefore, white refined sugar is not recommended. Brown sugar is advisable, but crude and unrefined sugar (jaggery) is better

    9. Cover the container using breathable paper and hold in position using a rubber band or thread.

    So I've only tried making IMO-1 and IMO-2 so far. I will post up the instructions for making IMO-3-5 when I get there or if anyone ask for it..

    The pictures im posting are for people that dont live near A forest or places with nature such as in the city or something.. The small container holding the 2 containers of rice is put into A slightly bigger plastic container that has nice worm castings in it. That container is placed into A much bigger plastic container.

    (FFJ) Fresh Fruit Juice Ferments


    Fermented Fruit Juice (FFJ) is an artificial honey. It is a nutritional activation enzyme and is very effective in natural farming.

    FFJ is a kind of FPJ that only uses fruits as its main ingredients. It is used to revitalize crops, livestock and humans.

    As the main fruit ingredients we can use Banana, Papaya, Mango, Grape, Melon, Apple etc (the fruits must be sweet).

    How to make FFJ

    1.Prepare at least 3 fully ripened fruits, either picked or fallen. Look for fruits that grow in your locality. If the quantity of fruits is not sufficient, you may add supplementary ingredients such as spinach roots, wild yam, cabbage, cucumber, zucchini and radish. (Use grapes only for grapes and citrus for citrus fruits. These fruits are not good when used on other crops due to their cold and sour characteristics.)

    2.For 1 Kg of fruit ingredient, use 1.2 to 1.3 Kg of brown sugar (Jaggery) in summer and 1Kg in winter. (One of the functions of brown sugar is to control moisture. During winter, temperature is lower, thus, there is little need to control the moisture).

    3.Wash and dry the jar to disinfect container in the sun.

    4.Spread the sugar on the chopping board.

    5.Dice your fruit ingredients starting with the sweetest. After dicing, smear sugar on the fruits and put them in a container. This step should be taken quickly to prevent the loss of essential substances. Fruits that are difficult to dice like grapes and strawberries may be slightly crunched with clean fingers.

    6.Use half of the sugar while dicing and pour the remaining half after all of the fruits have been diced and placed in the container.

    7.Slowly stir the mixture of diced fruits and sugar, about 2 to 3 times with a wooden stick. Since temperature plays an important role in this process, stir the mixture with fewer strokes in summer and with more strokes in winter.

    8.Cover with porous paper and tie to the container. Porous paper allows a good amount of air supply

    9.Let the mixture ferment. During summer, fermentation completes in 4 to 5 days. In winter the process takes 7 to 8 days.

    10. After fermentation, sprinkle some more sugar on the mixture and store in a cool and shaded place. It is normal, that some sugar can still be found on the surface.


    1.Changeover period: During this period, crops require ample amounts of phosphoric acid. Acid from FFJs of less ripe fruits is good such as those from Grape, Papaya, Mulberry or Raspberry.

    2.Reproductive growth: FPJs made from fully ripened fruits of apple, banana, mango, papaya, peach, and grape are useful to supply the calcium demand of crops at this stage.

    3.After the Changeover period of crops, they are applied with FFJ that has been diluted in 1:1000 ratio in water.

    4.Spray it to chicken housing, vegetables, orchard for protection against diseases.

    5.Plant activation enzyme is an indispensable material in Natural Farming. Activation enzyme enables used resources to be utilized in various application such as enzyme feed, enzyme fertilizers.

    This is an Unripe Mango Ferment I started. It will be good for the beginning-Middle of Flower.

    This is A picture of the 3rd batch of liquid ive gotten out of this same batch of Ripe Mango.

      (FPJ) Fresh Plant Juice Ferments


      FPJ is a fermented extract of a plant’s sap and chlorophylls. It is a rich enzyme solution full of microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria and yeast that invigorates plants and animals. FPJ is used for crop treatments.


      -Plants that are strong against cold and can grow well in spring. This is in order to pass down the characteristic of plants that can endure extreme climatic changes.
      -Plants that grow fast and are vigorous. Fast developing plants have growth hormones that are very active. This characteristic can improve any plant weaknesses and the recovery of certain health problems of the plants.
      -Fast-growing and vigorous plants. For example, Bamboo shoots and lateral buds of all kinds of plants have abundant growth hormone and vitality.
      -Thinned-out fruits have a lot of gibberellins which makes plants healthy with thicker foliage and enhances the thickness of fruit.


      - Avoid days when there is excessive sunshine or rainfall. Excessive sunshine may evaporate nutrients. Too much rainfall may wash away important nutrients and microorganisms. When there is rain, collect only after two days.
      -Collect the ingredients just before sunrise. Plants have perfect moisture level during this time.


      1. Shake off dirt from the Plants but do not wash in water. Washing will remove useful microorganisms. If the ingredients are too big, cut them to adequate sizes, about 3 to 5 cm. This increases contact surface area and promotes osmotic pressure. (Do not mix different kinds of ingredients in one container. Use separate container for each ingredient.)

      2. Measure the weight of the ingredient and the weight of brown sugar. Brown sugar should be between half of the weight of the ingredient. You should add or subtract sugar according to plant’s moisture level.

      3. Put the ingredients and brown sugar in a large wide container and mix them with your hands. Cover with porous paper and leave for 1 to 2 hours.

      4. Put the mixture into the clay pot. It should fill up ¾ of the jar. It is important that the jar is not too full or under full. The empty space is not empty. It is filled with air, for optimum fermentation to occur.

      5. Put weight (Stone) on the mixture to control the amount of air in it.

      6. Put on the cover and tie the jar. A cover is needed to prevent insects from getting into the mixture. Paper is ideal because it lets the air in and out.

      7. Remove the weight after 1 or 2 days. After the air has escaped, put back the cover again.

      8. Put the jar in a cool and shaded place. Do not open, move or stir the ingredients during the process of fermentation.


      1. Germination to early vegetative growth: Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris, Mosapatri in Telugu), and bamboo shoot FPJs are suitable at this stage to help crops become resistant against cold and grow fast and strong. FPJs should be used at lower concentration during this stage, preferably at a dilution of 1:1000.

      2. Vegetative growth: Arrowroot and Bamboo shoot FPJs, as well as Reeds (water or marsh plants with a firm stem), help crops obtain their needed nitrogen to increase in volume. At this stage, FPJs can be used at a general dilution of 1:800 to 1:1000.

      3. Presence of pests: FPJ can be used to keep pests away from fruits. A mixture of FPJ and rice bran can be sprinkled on the area around fruit trees to lure pests to the ground, thus preventing them from going to the fruits.

      EDIT- I can’t find my pictures of the Kale,Motherwort, or FPJ Ferments for some reason.. the plant material I use is organicly grown as well!

        (OHN) Oriental Herbal Nutrients


        The oriental Herbal Nutrient (OHN )is a very important input in Natural Farming. It is made from herbs which are full of energy and function to increase plant robustness, to sterilize and keep plants warm. OHN revitalizes crops and activates their growth. It is made from popular oriental herbs such as Angelica, Acutiloba, Licorice and Cinnamon that are fermented, not boiled, to maintain the vigorous growth of crops.


        The above ingredients may be classified as being in a raw state (Garlic / Ginger) in a dry state (Cinamon bark) can be used in their raw state.

        HOW TO MAKE

        1. Take cinnamon bark 250 gms / Bear 750 ml,
        2. Put the cinnamon bark in a jar and fill up with bear so that the bark is completely soaked.
        3. Fill the jar with 2/3 of the jar. (The amount of bear should be such that it fully wets the ingredients but not too much. Let it absorb the moisture for 1 or 2 days).
        4. Add jaggary to the jar equivalent to the weight of the ingredients.
        5. Cover the jar using porous paper and tie with rubber band. Leave for 3 to 5 days for fermentation.
        6. Stir everyday with stick in the morning for two weeks.
        7. After fermentation, pour distilled liquor into the remaining 1/3 space of the 3 jar. (For long storage)
        8. If we use with in 45 days no need to add liquor, water will do.


        Garlic : When using the whole bulb of garlic (1 kg), select freshly harvested garlic (Do not wash with water). Crush everything including the skins and the roots, which contain moisture. Crush 1kg of the garlic (Do not crush too finely)

        Ginger : Collect ginger (Do not wash with water). Crush after shaking the soil off (Do not crush too finely).

        1. Put 1kg of crushed garlic or ginger in the seperate jar.
        2. Add the same amount of Jagerry 1kg (1:1 ratio) and cover it with porous paper. The amount of mixture should occupy 2/3 of the space of the jar. It is very important to fill only 2/3 of the jar in order for good fermentation. Leave it for 4-6 days.
        3. The jar must cover it with tight lid / vinyl film. stir the mixture gently clockwise every day morning for a week. Leave it for 4-6 days.
        4. Filter the content and keep the extraction in another jar for long-term storage.
        5. The extracting process is difficult add water to extract juce this can be used with in 45 days.
        6. To preserve longer period add liquor to extract the juice easily.


        The dilution ration of OHN to water is 1:1000. The ratio can be changed depending on the weather or the condition of the plant. The three kinds of OHNs (ginger, garlic and cinnamon) are mixed just before using in the following ratio: 1:1:1:1000.


        Throughout the Nutritive Cycle. OHN is considered a very important input in Natural Farming and can be used throughout the early, vegetative, changeover and fruiting or reproductive stages at the basic dilution ratio of 1: 500 to 1000 times in water.


        To reinvigorate weakened crops, a mixture of OHN (1:1000) with FPJ (1:500) and BRV (1:500) can be applied. For plants with soft rot or anthracnose, WCA (1:1000) is added to the mixture..

        Heres A picture of the first small batch of Garlic OHN I tried to make.. It might be A little better to use A bigger Jar LOL, but even when I tried again this still happened. After researching and talking to very knowledgeable farmers/Growers, it kept doing this because it was VERY Active

          Water-Soluble Potassium,Phosphoric Acid, and Potassium

          Water Soluble Calcium,Potassium, and Phosphoric Acid.


          (WS-Ca) Calcium is as important to plants as it is to humans. It is one of the most common substances in the world next to oxygen and silicon and the majority of calcium exists in the form of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). In Natural Farming, calcium carbonate is extracted from egg shells in which calcium carbonate is the main component by using brown rice vinegar. Through this process, calcium carbonate is changed to watersoluble calcium, which can be quickly absorbed by the crop. It prevents overgrowth of crops, hardens the fruit, prolongs storage period, promotes absorption of phosphoric acid and helps crops to accumulate nutrients. Calcium in water soluble form is efficient and effective in natural farming. Eggshells are very cost-effective materials for WS-Ca.


          1. Calcium contributes to better utilization of carbohydrates and protein. It is the major component in forming cell membranes and enables smooth cell division.
          2. Calcium removes harmful substances in the body by binding with organic acids.
          3. Calcium prevents crops from overgrowing..
          4. Calcium makes fruits firm and prolongs the storage period.
          5. Calcium promotes absorption of phosphoric acid and is responsible for nutrient accumulation in the crop.
          6. Calcium plays a very important role in maintaining the health of the plant.
          7. Calcium carries and accumulates nutrients for e.g., carbohydrate, which are temporarily stored in branches and in leaves till the final storage organ for e.g., ovary through physiological activity.


          1. Collect eggshells and take out the inside peel. Taking out the inside peelings clears the eggshells of matters other than calcium.
          2. Crush / Pound the shells in to small pieces (not into powder form). This makes the process faster and the product more effective.
          3. Lightly roast the shells to remove any organic substances that may rot and deteriorate during the process.
          4. Put the roasted shells in a container filled with brown rice vinegar (BRV). The eggshells will move up and down, emitting bubbles and melt to become a neutralized liquid. When there is no more movement or bubbles, it is done.

          When there are no more bubbles with the added eggshells, it means the solution is saturated.

          PRECAUTION: Put the roasted eggshells little by little and slowly into the container with veniger or BRV. If not, the bubbles can overflow by the reaction between the materials and the BRV .

          HOW TO USE WS-Ca

          WS-Ca is used with WCaP, FPJ, OHN and sea water for better taste and more aromatic fruits. It is sprayed on the leaves after the fruits have become large. Use after dilution with water. The basic dilution ratio is 1:1000.

          WHEN TO USE WS-Ca

          1. Several WS-Ca completed separately may be mixed in order to enhance the effect of calcium.
          2. WS-Ca is very effective in the cross-over period when the growth of crop changes from vegetative to reproductive growth.
          3. Spray WS-Ca on the leaves several times after the fruits have become large to some degree. Spraying WS-Ca prevents plants from overgrowing and yields solid fruits.
          4. WS-Ca leads nutrients to be accumulated in flower buds and fruits. As a result, the flower buds become strong, can prepare for high yields the following year and harvest solid and substantial fruits that year as well.
          5. WS-Ca has an effect of improving the taste and fragrance of the fruit when it is used with water-soluble calcium phosphate, oriental herbal nutrient (OHN), fermented plant juice(FPJ) and sea-water.
          6. Use WS-Ca when the plants overgrow.
          7. Use WS-Ca when the initial growth of the crop is poor.
          8. Use WS-Ca when the leaves discolor and lack luster
          9. Use WS-Ca when the flower buds have poor differentiation.
          10. Use WS-Ca when the physiological drop is severe.
          11. Use WS-Ca when fruit enlargement is slow
          12. Use WS-Ca when the sugar content decreases.
          13. WS-Ca helps in the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth. It is also effective when crops are overgrown, leaves have bad color or no luster, floral differentiation is weak, flower blossoms just fall, fruits do not ripen, fruits are not sweet and crops are nitrogenexcessive. However, WS-Ca should not be given when vigorous vegetative growth is needed.


          The Water-soluble Calcium Phosphate (WS-CaPo) is extracted from the bone of vertebrate animals. WS-CaPo is an essential substance for plant growth and is widely distributed in the soil. Calcium phosphate is insoluble in water, but soluble in acids: this property is used in Natural Farming. Calcium phosphate can dissolve slightly in the water containing CO2. Phosphoric acid and Calcium are good for plant cultivation. Their results are said to be effective, but with improved method of production and correct usage, the benefits may be seen much faster.

          HOW TO PREPARE WS-CaPo

          1. To remove the flesh boiled the bones and dry under sunlight. Do not use raw bones, on which meat and fat is attached. Turn the bones into a charcoal state by burning them at a low temperature. This process is necessary to burn organic and fatty substances.
          2. Use the charcoal of the bones as they are or pound them (Do not pound too much, as it will become powder). Put the bones in the jar with BRV .
          3. Calcium phosphate is dissolved from the bones.
          4. Small bubbles will appear. If there is no movement, it means that the process of solution is completed (about 7 days).

          HOW TO USE WS-CaPo

          WS-CaPo is diluted 1:500 to 1:1000 times for crops. A stronger dilution rate can be used when needed. The solution is then sprayed on leaves.

          WHEN TO USE WS-CaPo

          WS-CaPo is used on plants before and after the changeover period.

          1.Use after dilution with water. The basic dilution ratio is 1:1000
          2.Spray WS-CaPo on leaves during the periods of cross-over and vegetative growth.
          3.Use WS-CaPo when the crop overgrows.
          4.Use WS-CaPo when the initial growth is poor.
          5.Use WS-CaPo when the flower buds have weak differentiation.
          6.Use as drinking water (1:500) for the livestock that are pregnant or ovulating.
          7.WS-CaPo It can be fed to animals during pregnancy or breeding time.

            (LAB) Lactic Acid Bacteria, Sea Water , and Mineral Water


            Lactic acid bacteria are anaerobic microorganisms. In the absence of oxygen, they break sugar into lactic acid. LAB is very effective in improving ventilation of air in the soil, promoting rapid growth of fruit trees and leaf vegetables.


            1. Put rice-washed water 15 to 20 cm deep in a jar. Cover the mouth of the jar with handmade paper and leave in shade.
            2. Lactic acid bacteria will propagate at 23 to 25C, and the solution will start to smell sour.
            3. Add this rice water to milk. The ideal ratio between milk and rice water is 3:1 ratio. Milk in the market pasteurized in low temperature is okay. But sometimes, milk brought from the stores will not be effective. The best milk to be used is the milk from cows. Since milk has more nutrients than the rice-washed water, lactic acid bacteria will grow vigorously.
            4) In 3 to 4 days, the jar will have three divided layers a) floating matter b) clear liquid and c) debris (waste). Starch, protein and fat will float on the surface and yellow liquid will be deposited at the middle, this is called as Lactic acid bacteria .The waste will be deposited in the bottom of the container. Remove the floating substance, strain and save the yellow liquid and store in a separate bottle and keep in cool and shaded place or in a refrigerator.

            HOW TO USE LAB

            1. The basic dilution ratio is 1:1000.
            2. LAB reinforces the ability of anabolism of microbes living on the plant stem and leaf, a condition that arose from the abuse of insecticides and fungicides. 3. When using LAB alone, it is more effective to use it with FPJs.
            4. Fields will recover fertility and the soil will become soft and fluffy if IMO mixed with LAB is sprayed on the field.
            5. Use LAB (1:500) with FPJ (1:300) as drinking water for livestock, to recover their digestive function.
            6. LAB is extremely effective in making fruits and leaves large, but the amount of LAB used should be reduced while approaching the later stages.
            7. If the LAB is used together with mixed compost or IMO, the fermentation process occurs fast, leading to very effective results. The LAB function is to prevent the fermented mixed compost from decaying.

            USES OF LAB

            1. The Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) is very effective for improving soil ventilation and for growing fruits and leafy vegetables.
            2. The initial growth of the plant, when LAB is used during the vegetative growth period of fruiting vegetables, higher quality plants will result, and may be kept for longer periods, in storage.
            3. LAB increases the solubility of the fertilizer.
            4. LAB can reduce damage from gas through neutralizing ammonia gas produced where the immature compost is applied.
            5. LAB is conditionally anaerobic, so they can also survive with oxygen.
            6. LAB is resistant to high temperatures.
            7. LAB is strong sterilizer.
            8. LAB is used to culture IMO-3.
            9. LAB solubilizes phosphate in 100-200 ppm (parts per million) (100-200ml of LAB in 1000ml of water). Using LAB in phosphate-accumulated soil will increase its capacity to absorb the insoluble form of phosphates and help overcome the saline disorder as a result of decomposition of the phosphates. 10.LAB has power to resistance to some fungi.


            The deeper the sea water is the higher the salt content. There fore it is desirable to use the surface seawater.

            Organic matter in sea water produces an excellent effect when the microbes of land and the minerals and microbes of seawater meet. Brackish provides a favorable conditions for microbes. Which in turn helps support may plankton and many fish that eat the plankton.

            In other words fermented seawater provides abundant energy to the crops and the livestock. Because of viruses skin disease occurs. When skin looses fat, the number of microbes decrease and even such a small change can induce out breaks of disease. Sea water can solve this problem. Adding rice-washed water (5ml) brings out its best properties. Rice-washed water and fermented plant juice (5ml) to sea water (diluted 30 ml to one lit water) brings out its best properties. Rice washed water has an effect like that of yeast. It is more effective when oriental herbal nutrient is mixed.

            The combination has a similar effect when the river and sea merging point where freshwater and seawater meet. It provides a favorable condition for microbes which in turn support many plankton and many fish that eat the plankton. In other wards fermented seawater provides abundant energy to the crops and the live stock.

            When the microbes of land and the minerals and microbes of seawater are combined it produces an excellent effect for crops and livestock.

            For storage, pour seawater in a large bowl and leave it for a day to let air borne microbes go in it.

            1. Using Seawater (SW) as an NF Input

            While Natural Farming uses materials that farmers can prepare by themselves, other natural inputs need to be collected away from the farms. Such inputs include seawater (SW) and natural minerals (NM).

            Seawater and sun-dried salt are two sources of nutrients and minerals regarded by Natural Farming as also essential together with NPK.

            One lit Seawater is diluted with 30 lit water, while sun-dried salt is diluted 2ml for1000 ml water.

            1.To sweeten fruits. WS-Ca is added to diluted seawater and then the solution is sprayed twice in one month and then 20 days before harvest.
            2.Soil application. Sun-dried salt is applied to soil at 5 kg for every 10 acres.
            3.Prevent feather loss in chickens. To avoid feather loss of chickens in summer, BRV (200) and WS-Ca (500) is mixed with diluted seawater and fed to chickens once in two days.

            Alright so the 3rd picture below is right after I added my milk to the Rice Wash Water that was sitting for 2-3 Days. I mixed the milk with the rice water and then put it into Jars. It might be easier to just use small 2gal buckets if your making A lot.

            The final picture with the jar that looks like it has Curd/Cheese forming on top is what it looks like when it’s ready. The separation has occurred, and now I have to take the top curd layer out/away from the liquid. Your dogs will probably love that curd layer and that bacteria is very healthy for them and you!

            Make sure to use A cheese cloth when pouring the liquid into another jar or container. Just to get anything else that might be floating in there. If the LAB needs to be stored, add some Raw Brown Cane Sugar, Mix it A little and Store in A very cool shaded area or A fridge if possible. So the bacteria goes into Acdormant state.

              (SST) Seed Sprout/Enzyme Tea

              This Post Will have 2 different types of Seed Treatments. 1 will be used specifically to help germinate old/weakened seeds, and the other will be to germinate Hundreds to thousands of seeds and blending them to create A tea that has all of those enzymes and auxins/cytokinins.


              The quality of seeds is imperative to the success of farming. A strong seed means a healthy plant throughout its life cycle. Seeds grown under harsh conditions are tougher and stronger with superior adaptability.

              Seeds in the market, on the other hand, are bred in artificial conditions and soaked in chemicals. They cannot grow without human protection and cannot attain their fullest potentials even if given scientific treatments.

              Natural Farming aims to maximize the seed’s strength. Since seeds in the market are almost chemical products, they need to be treated to recover their natural powers. Furthermore, the conventional practice of soaking seeds for a long period of time before broadcast causes seeds to lose nutrients. Natural Farming uses a seed/seedling solution (SESS) with a brief treatment period to restore the seed’s natural vitality.

              How To Make Seedling Solution

              Mix all of these ingredients together.

              1.-Fermented Plant Juice 2ml
              2,-Brown Rice Vinegar 2ml
              3,-Oriental Herbal Nutrients 1ml
              4.- Water 1000ml

              If seeds are small and weak add in 1ml of Fish Amino Acids, and if the Seedlings are Overgrown and/or soft add 1ml of Water Soluble Calcium to the mix.

              How To Use SES

              Fast Germinating Seeds (Turnips,Cabbage,Beans)- Soak for 2 hours.

              Regular Germination(Cucumber,Melon,Squ ash,Lotus)- Soak for 4 hours.

              Slow-Germinating(rice,Barley,Tomato )- Soak For 7 Hours.

              Other(Potato,Ginger,Garlic,Tar o)- Soak for 30min to 1 hour.

                            Glad to see you guys took A liking to this!! I was hoping I didnt do all of it for nothing haha..

                            So I need to restart collecting IMO- Indigenous Micro Organisms.. I looked at other growers rice and it was covered/filled with White mycelium which is what we are after. Mines has VERY little of it. Theres had like 3-6 inches of pure white mycelium covering their rice, you honestly couldnt even see the rice anymore..

                              Right now im on the 3rd Boil, I think after this boil is done and I rinse them off and change the water again. This 4th boil might be the last, well hopefully it is and they are clean enough. You absolutely dont want anything else but the shells left..

                              Once the boiling process is done, im going to either clean the grill and put them on it until golden brown, or into the oven. You dont want to over char them, you just want them lightly golden, even the egg shells so make sure to watch them. Unless your not just going for calcium.
