Organic Wood Vinegar is a reddish-brown liquid, obtained by condensing the water volatile organics, released during wood pyrolysis. Wood Vinegar is made up of about 89% water and numerous organic components, including organic acids, phenols, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols etc. Wood vinegar liquid is widely used in organic farming, horticulture, forestry, florists, animal husbandry and human medical care.
- Partially sterilizes the soil and reduces bacterial, fungal and insect pest infestations.
- Acts as a synergist and dramatically reduces the need for other, more toxic pesticides.
- Increases the photosynthetic capacity of plants and promotes plant growth.
- Promotes fruits bud formation.

DOSAGE & APPLICATION METHODS
Soil sterilization: Dilute with clean water at a ratio of 1:100 and spray onto the open soil, ensuring even penetration of 5-10 cm (2-4 inches). Wait for 1-2 weeks before planting or sowing. Plant inhibition also happens in seed germination at ratios of 1:100 or less.
Seedlings: Dilute with clean water at ratios of 1: 500 to 1:1000 for both, foliar applications and / or root irrigation. First foliar application is at, or after 2nd leaf stage and then at 15 day intervals (see “Notes”).
Growing and mature plants: Dilute with clean water at ratios of 1:500 to 1:700 for both, foliar applications and / or root irrigation at 15 day intervals (see “Notes”).
Penetrant: Used as a penetrant for better nutrient uptake – 1:500 dilution in clean water.
Flavour enhancer: Mix ratios of 1:500 to 1:1000. This prevents excessive nitrogen levels, improves plant metabolism and contributes to higher fruit sugar levels.
Enriches soil fertility: Dilute 1:200 clean water and sprinkle on soil before planting. Application is 1 litre per square metre of planting area.
