Seacliff Organics BEAM Bio-Inoculant is a super high biology compost/vermicast/Bioreactor product full of live fungi and beneficial microorganisms.
Active fungal to bacterial ratio 0.87:1
Add this inoculant to existing compost or soil mixes to increase biodiversity and kick start the biology. Water in well, and keep moist at all times.
Please note, we pack our BEAM fresh, so it can maintain the highest possible biological value, due to this there may be an extra day before dispatch.
This is a biologically active product and cannot be left to dry out.
Alternatively, place in a bucket of water and stir, creating a vortex for 5 minutes then apply.
For larger scale application, you can bubble some water with an air pump, hanging the Beam in a 400 micron bag over the rapid bubbling water. Leave for 30 minutes, repeat the process if a stronger concentration is desired. Don't overfill the bag, as it will inhibit the extraction process.
Seed coating (max effect)
Making a slurry to treat seeds is very simple. Fill a 20 litre bucket about half full with compost. Add 1 Tablespoon of molasses to a cup of warm milk to mix, this works as an adhesive to bind the compost to the seed with. Pour this milk/molasses mixture into the bucket with compost along with enough water to make a slurry that has the consistency of pancake batter. Add 1 litre of this mixture to a 50# bag of seed and tumble in a cement mixer for 2 minutes and then remove from the mixer and plant wet if possible, if not spread the seeds out on a tarp in the shade and allow to dry. It is better to plant wet but sometimes planting equipment does not allow this option.
110 grams= enough to make up 75 litres of solution with recommended coverage of over 50 square meters. Only a 'pinch' added to a packet of seeds is necessary. 30 grams can inoculate 20 kg bag of seeds. The solution can be sprayed on the soil of Gardens, Containers or 'Grow Bags before or after planting out. Turbo-Charges plant seed germination, growth, development and yields.
