The average Joe uses chemical fertilizer also, and we all know chlorine doesn't effect petrol products. However, I agree with your point.

So whats peoples take on the fish emulsion. IS it considered organic. Ive always used the alaska since i was a youngster. The thing they started doing years ago is descenting it to make it less fishy smelling. How they are doing this I havent a clue?

EarthFort.com is the marketing arm of Dr. Ingham's SFI organization. Here's a blurb on the differences between fish emulsion vs. fish hydrolysate from their web site store.

Quote:

Fish hydrolysate is cold processed (minced, enzymatically digested and liquefied) to preserve proteins for quick turnover by microbes into nutrients for plants. This process distinguishes fish hydrolysate from fish emulsion which is processed with heat; removing oils (fungal foods) and denaturing nutrients and beneficial bacteria. Hydrolysate retains the natural oils from the fish that are a very potent fungal food.

Because of cold processing, fish hydrolysate must be stabilized at a low pH. We recommend hydrolysates that are stabilized with sulfuric or phosphoric acid.
Some nationally distributed sources of fish hydrolysate would be Neptune's Harvest, Organic Gem & others. There are however a number of regional hydrolysate products.

You can also make your own - it ain't rocket science

Thanks so much clackamas. Now that Ive got you here Ive been meaning to bring this up at an opportunity such as this.

Heres the thing. They used to sell Sulfur sprays for fruit trees. They took it off the market a number of years back. It worked KILLER for peach leaf curl. I run out of it last year and occasionaly you run into it at a garage sale or something. The new thing on the shelves is copper spray. It doesnt work anything like the sulfur.
Is there a way we could make that spray on our own?

A couple of questions...

Does the Copper spray have anything on the label about it containing Copper Sulfate?

Do you remember the name of the Sulfur spray? Did the term 'Lime Sulfur' appear on the label perhaps?

Yup sounds like a way better product! I thought I would be blown away by the price but surprisingly it is comparable to emulsified fish.
