Organic Orchard Farming Using Biological Fertiliser

Regenerative Avocado Farming

Organic, natural and regenerative orchard farming focuses on improving soil health and sustainability in agricultural practices. One innovative approach to achieve this is through the use of Biological fertilisers. These fertilisers utilise cold fermentation to produce a solution that stimulates microbial activity in the soil.  Improving the soils biology helps promote efficient nutrient cycling and enhances overall soil health.

Conventional farming methods often rely heavily on chemical inputs, which can have detrimental effects on the environment and long-term soil fertility. In contrast, regenerative and organic orchard farming seeks to restore and enhance natural processes within the ecosystem.

Biological Fertilisers have gained significant attention in orchard farming due to their organic and sustainable nature. Two popular types of biological fertilisers used in orchard farming are Liquid Seaweed and Liquid Fish.

Liquid Seaweed is rich in essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and trace elements. These nutrients play a vital role in promoting plant growth and development. Additionally, Liquid Seaweed contains natural plant hormones like auxins, cytokinins, and gibberellins that stimulate root growth, enhance flowering and fruiting, and improve overall plant, tree and orchard resilience.

On the other hand, Liquid Fish Fertiliser is made from fish waste after processing. It is a potent source of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients are readily available for plants to absorb through their roots. Liquid Fish Fertiliser not only provides essential nutrients but also enhances soil fertility by improving microbial activity.

The use of Liquid Seaweed and Liquid Fish Fertilisers offers several benefits for orchard farming. Firstly, they provide a balanced nutrient profile necessary for healthy tree growth and fruit production. Secondly, these fertilisers improve soil structure by increasing microbial activity and organic matter content. This leads to better water retention capacity and nutrient availability for the plants.

Moreover, the natural hormones present in both Liquid Seaweed and Liquid Fish Fertilisers help regulate plant growth processes effectively. They promote root development for better nutrient uptake while stimulating flowering and fruiting stages for higher yield potential.

It All Starts In The Soil

Naturally fermented Biological Fertilisers deliver balanced organic minerals, activated by beneficial microbes, that stimulate beneficial microorganisms in the soil. This stimulation encourages the trees growth and activity, leading to improved immunity and increased carbon sequestration.

By incorporating Biological Fertilisers into organic orchard farming practices, farmers can reduce their reliance on synthetic fertilisers while simultaneously improving soil structure, water retention, and overall plant health. This approach not only benefits crop productivity but also contributes to long-term sustainability by minimising environmental impacts.

Tree Strength and Resilience 

Regenerative and organic orchard farming is a holistic approach that aims to restore and enhance the health of the soil, resulting in more nutrient-dense harvests and resilient trees. One key method many farmers are using is the use of Biological soil amendments.

Biological Fertilisers assist the introduction of beneficial microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, and other soil-dwelling organisms, into the soil ecosystem. These organisms play a crucial role in improving soil health by breaking down organic matter, cycling nutrients, and enhancing nutrient availability for plants.

By incorporating Biological soil amendments into regenerative and organic orchard farming practices, farmers can create a thriving ecosystem underground. This enhanced biology in the soil promotes healthier tree growth and development. Trees become less susceptible to disease as they are better equipped with natural defense mechanisms provided by the diverse microbial community.

Optimum Nutrient Uptake

Furthermore, these beneficial microorganisms aid in nutrient uptake by trees. As a result, harvests from regenerative and organic orchards tend to have higher nutrient density compared to conventional methods. This means that consumers can enjoy fruits and nuts with increased nutritional value.

Overall, adopting regenerative, natural and organic orchard farming practices that include the use of biological fertilisers can contribute to sustainable agriculture while producing healthier crops and trees with improved resistance against diseases.

SONIC Liquid Seaweed Biological Fertiliser is formulated to supply broad spectrum minerals and trace elements, and stimulates microbe and worm activity in the soil. 

SONIC Liquid Fish Hydrolysate Fertiliser is cold processed so the amino chains remain intact and all the minerals and trace elements become bio-available and easy for plants to uptake.
