Part-1 Fermented Fish waste (Gunapaselam)
Fermented Fish (Gunapaselam) Waste is an excellent plant tonic. It helps in plant growth by providing nitrogen (8%-10% of plant requirement).
It is a rich source of amino acids, microbes, micro and macronutrients that also help to enhance soil fertility. It is proven to be effective both as a natural growth promoter and as a pest repellent. _x005F_x000D_
Used in addition with other sprays, it helps control root grubs. _x005F_x000D_
This material was found to be nutrient-rich as it contains desirable macro (N, K, Ca, Mg, P and S) and microelements (Cl, Fe, B, Mn, Zn, Cu, Mo and Ni) found in the viscera and fish head._x005F_x000D_
• Use as a foliar spray. Use 3 percent-5 percent in water as a spray on any crop during dawn or dusk to promote growth, flower and increase yield. _x005F_x000D_
• It could also be mixed with irrigation water if one has more fish or fish waste (proportion: of 2 liters per 100 liters of water). _x005F_x000D_
• When we prepare this extract from 3-10 kg of fish, then the quantity is sufficient to be used in one acre of land._x005F_x000D_
