Bacilli with spores (including actinomyces) and many kinds of moulds grow rapidly as they feed on the nutrients in wood vinegar. Within a week of spraying wood vinegar on soil, the surface and inside of the soil are covered with white moulds. Some germs and useful microbes (antibacterial microbes) are resistant to acids, other are not. Spraying wood vinegar on soil generally tends to raise the density of useful microbes such as bacilli, actinomyces and Trichoderma. These are antibacterial microbes which are parasitic to Corticium rolfsii Curzi, seedling damping-off bacillus (Rhizoctonia, Pythium), Sclerotinia, and so on. Although wood vinegar usually is able to reduce soil diseases through its ability to destroy harmful microbes and encourage the growth of helpful ones, occasionally there are not sufficient useful microbes or there are too many acid proof germs in the original soil. In these cases, it is important to apply compost along with the wood vinegar. The compost introduces such useful microbes. Such changes in the biota or microbes not only inhibits diseases of the soil, but also helps plants take root well and grow strong. Wood vinegar also kills clubroot eelworms. Though the reason is not clear, it is presumed that wood vinegar not only has a toxic effect on the eelworms themselves, but also increases the numbers of the eelwormsโ€™ predators. #woodvinegar #farmer #farming #agriculture #urbanfarming #organicgardening #organic #natural #nature #organicfertilizer #fertilizer #pesticides #pesticidefree #herbicides #antibacterial #soilamendments #soilenrichment #mangroveforest #mangrove #forest #matang #charcoal #charcoalfactory #insta #instagood #instaplants #instafarm #instadaily #malaysia #agricultureglobal
