Natural Farming: Fish Amino Acid

Natural Farming: Fish Amino Acid Introduction Commercially available fertilizers are a cost-effective means of supplementing soil with nitrogen (N) for plant growth and high crop yields; however, improper or excessive use of N fertilizer can lead to nitrate pollution of ground or surface water (Foley et al. 2012). Producers can minimize this predicament by implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) for fertilizer use that reduce nutrient losses and avert runoff and leaching from agricultural lands. Natural Farming incorporates the use of indigenous microorganisms (IMO) (Park and DuPonte 2008) and fish amino acid (FAA) to increase N availability in soils and improve crop yields while sustaining water quality. This fact sheet addresses the production and use of FAA in Natural Farming. click the link to learn more.>>>>
