Kashi Blend is typically applied as a top dress. If you like precision, you can use ⅓ cup per 15 gallons of soil. We typically like to throw down a handful per container.
It can also be used in a tea. This should be done without aeration. Simply soak 1.5 cups of Kashi Blend per 5 gallons of water for 24-48 hours. You can add some additional molasses at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of water if you’d like.
Using in the Garden Questions
This is entirely up to you. You can top dress up until harvest if you’d like. We typically stop applying 20-30 days prior to harvest.
When applying to soils with vegetables I would continue to use up until harvest.
The addition of Kashi Blend to a traditional compost pile can speed up the process and reduce the smell due to the microbes contained within.
When used as a bokashi compost bucket method, fermentation and pickling occurs. This preserves more of the nutrients in the material being composted. Once added to soil or a worm bin, breakdown happens faster because of the initial pickling/fermenting process.Learn more here.
The material in your bokashi bucket will not fully breakdown until it is added to soil or a worm bin.
Typically once the bucket is full, allowing it to sit for an additional 2 weeks before burying or adding to a worm bin would be optimal.
Once buried full breakdown should be achieved within 2-3 weeks depending on soil health.
