…my state in all its wisdom decided that to "protect" us, so it is now illegal to sell or buy fish hydrolysate. The experts had always said it's better than the cooked fish meal for the compost tea. I have been just going to the grocery store, buying a small cheap piece of fish, cutting it up, putting it in the blender and adding it to the tea. The good news is it doesn't smell as bad. Do you see any down sides to this in making an effective tea? I mostly do foliar application but some soil drench as well.
Thanks for the response Eric,
I am not worried about the worms. I don't think that my fruit trees are susceptible to fish parasites. However, I just meant, do you have any guidelines or caveats about using fresh fish in the compost tea instead of hydrolysate?
PS I don't understand why Natural Farming automagically links to Eric Fisher's book that I haven't bought yet . I don't have that book. I refer to that term as defined in
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
