How to use

Pasture

Apply year round preferably in moist conditions morning OR afternoon 10 - 20 L/ha diluted 10:1.
Dairy and beef: Rotational grazing, apply 7 days after grazing at 5 - 7 L/ha - additional nitrogen may be added, 5 - 10 kg/ha dissolved in 200 ltrs water.

Field Crops + Vegetables

20-40 L/ha at pre-planting diluted min 10:1. Foliar spray 5-7 L/ha at 10-21 day intervals at 50:1 dilution. Apply in moist conditions.

Orchards and Vines

Apply inter row to soil or grass/clover cover in spring and autumn through field jet 10-20L/ha diluted min 10:1. Foliar sprays: apply through high volume sprayers morning or afternoon in moist conditions at 5-10 L/ha diluted 100:1. Up to 5 applications through growing period – may be added to nutrient sprays.

Nurseries

Apply every 10-21 days at 5-10 mls/ltr of water to foliage up till point of run-off. Higher rates 10-20 ml/ltr applied to soil pre-plant.

Livestock Feed additive

 6- 30% added and mixed with usual feed. Improves general health, increases palatability and weight gain, improves coat condition. 98.5% digestibility, introduces omega oils and selenium to eggs and meat. Not to be fed to ruminants at present.

Raw material used

Australian Processed wild caught Tuna. We do not use fresh water or aquacultured fish or northern hemisphere species which may contain toxins.

Process:

Fresh Tuna material is received fresh daily at our factory in Port Lincoln, South Australia. It is ground and then enzyme digested in a low temperature process which breaks down fish, or fish frames to simpler protein complexes. No synthetic materials are mixed into the fish hydrolysate, and the only manipulation the product undergoes is grinding and hydrolysis. This process yields a stable, non-odorous, liquid slurry which is compleatly safe and has been certified as organic.

Organic:

The process is natural and organic and has been certified organic by NASAA - reg number 5404M.

Hydrolysate must not be compared to chemical fertilizers. This product is natural and organic, there is nothing added and its complete array of nutrients are all available to the micro-organisms that inhabit and give life to soil and plants. This is all plants need to prosper and all the soil needs to sustain and perpetuate life.

Uses:

The nitrogen in hydrolysate is derived from fish protein in the form of amino acids which when added to the soil, slowly break down into basic nitrogen compounds. A percentage of nitrogen becomes soluble due to the nature of the manufacturing process. Because no oils or proteins are removed, the nutrients remain in the soil longer, and lower N-P-K rates can be used to meet or exceed the results obtained by chemicals with much higher rates. Some advantages to using hydrolyzed fish fertilizer are that it rebuilds soil biology resulting in excellent, healthy plant growth with increased yields and greater pest resistance. And it is made from the waste of a renewable aquatic resource.
Plants get 80% of their nitrogen from the air and that is via their leaves. If the leaves are working well, they can attract more nitrogen. The more bacteria on the leaves the healthier is the plant and leaf. The bacteria living in the stamata virtually carry the nitrogen into the plant. Fish and kelp are the great fungi and bacteria foods. See article titled 'free nitrogen'!

Advantages:

Tuna hydrolysate is a totally natural product having not been subjected to high heat or chemical treatment, and contains many trace elements including selenium. It is a soil rather than a plant food or fertiliser. It contains nutrients that feed the good bacteria and fungi in soil where the nitrogen drawing activities and nutrient excreted by the bacteria ensure sustainable, healthy plant growth. Bacteria form the backbone of soil which increases in richness over time, constructs bridges between plant root and soil and becomes self sufficiently enriched - reduced need to add nutrient or fertiliser once the harmony is established. Soil structure clearly improves, plants become healthier, pest control is minimised, yield is increased and damage caused by overdose of chemical fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides is repaired. And the presence of bacteria means up to 70% less water will be needed – drought resistance. Sounds miraculous but is simply ancient history revisited. If you must use herbicides like Roundup, its application rate can be reduced up to 90%. The sticky nature of the hydrolysate causes roundup to stick to leaf rather than drain away into soil. The acidity also encourages bacteria to ingest the treated fish so increasing its efficacity. The same principal applies to pesticides. Means significant cost savings and reduced pollutants in produce and soil. Furthermore, by using tuna hydrolysate the damage caused to waterways and aquatic life in rivers is eliminated. This means no chemical run off or absorption into underground aquifers, rivers, lakes and our water supplies! But this also depends on the elimination of nitrogenous, chemical fertilizers.

Dosage:

In hydroponic, trickle tape or foliar type applications, 300:1. For broad acre cropping, up to 10:1 dilution can be used.

Read Before Using

  • Stir well before using
  • Use filter socks where applicable Field or flood jets may be used to apply to pasture etc
  • Remove fine strainers and filters and use nozzles larger than 100um
  • Do not apply undiluted or in the heat of the day
  • May be mixed with water in bucket prior to pouring through filter in top of tank
  • Wash equipment soon after use
  • Do not store in diluted form
  • May be used with herbicides and pesticides, however, biological balance may be affected.
  • May be applied with other biological stimulants to enhance results; do not mix concentrates; add to tank solution separately. If in doubt check the ph compatibility
  • Lesser amounts applied more frequently will give best results
  • When applied with other products always check compatibility by jar testing a small amount at equivalent concentrations
  • Fish oil component may become waxy at cold temperatures
  • Fish hydrolysate is a natural product. Each batch may vary slightly. Its structure may change over time or under varying storage conditions.
  • Every care is taken during manufacture. The manufacturer and its agents accept no responsibility for injury, damage or consequent loss arising from its use or misuse once product leaves the factory.
