Discover how our Kashi Blend, a diverse grain bokashi, can jumpstart your gardening and composting efforts!
What is bokashi?
Bokashi is fermented using lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) inoculated into soil has been shown to increase decomposition of organic matter. This may lead to a faster release of plant nutrients within the inoculated soil, increase humus and the overall life of the soil. LAB may also contribute to disease suppression
Kashi Blend is not a stand-alone inoculate or nutrient but compliments a complete microbial inoculation program in a properly amended soil.
What’s in your Kashi Blend?
Our Kashi Blend is derived from organic molasses, organic rice bran, organic wheat bran organic camelina meal, organic insect frass, EM-1, and trace minerals.
Post-Fermentation: Organic powdered malted barley and charged biochar that’s inoculated with Rootwise® Mycrobe Complete.
How to Use On Plants:
To use simply apply 1/3 cup to 15 gallons of soil every 10-14 days.
How to Make Tea:
When making a tea, we advise you steep rather than make an aerated brew.
Use 1/2 cup – 1 cup per 5 gallons of water. Steep for 4 to 12 hours, strain and apply.
If you choose to aerate, we suggest you brew for a maximum of 4 hours.
Kashi Blend can be used to make a tea, however the formulation is most suitable as a top dress.
How to Use as a Compost Accelerator:
To use simply sprinkle a generous amount on top of each new layer you place in your composting bin. Once full, take the bokashi compost and bury outside for 2 to 3 weeks. After the 2 to 3 weeks, simply dig up and use as you would any other compost.
**You can purchase a special bokashi composting bucket or make one at home.
