1. Always store your Earthfood in a cool dark place between 5 and 45 degrees.

We keep ours under the kitchen sink or in the laundry cupboard. Over-heating and freezing the solution will result in perished microbes, but as you can see there is a fairly broad safe temperature range.

(Thermal mass temperature also has effect on volume. For example 1 litre bottle vs 1000 litre IBC)

2. Never transfer the Earthfood concentrate into other bottles.

The caps are breathable, allowing the microbes some air. And release any build-up of the natural gases they produce.

Previously used storage bottles could well be contaminated with harmful bacteria or chemicals, which could cause the microbes to perish.

3. Always make a single-use mix for your plants, garden or lawn application.

Only make what you will use as microbes can't live in water, they will perish after 1 hour in the spray bottle or knap-sack.

For commercial users, drone operators: the volume used would allow a longer time. Always pre-rinse equipment with black strap molasses and water to clean out previously used contaminants which could terminate the microbes.

Remember that water is the 'vehicle' to transport the microbes to their home in the soil particle or the cellulose cell of the plant.

4. Add water* for your measured application in a spray bottle or watering can for use.

*The best water to use for your mix will always be rainwater, tank water, well water, spring water or strongly filtered water.

If using town water with chlorination, allow a window of 1 hour of fully functional microbes. Shortly after one hour in chlorinated water, your microbes will perish, so get your Earthfood mixture onto your plants or into the soil as soon as possible. Use it or loose it!

5. Earthfood is non-hazardous, non-toxic and 100% organic.

It is bee kind, pet and child friendly, frog friendly, and waterways / reef safe.

Earthfood turns dead dirt into fertile, healthy, living soils.

Apply it to ALL plant types, grasses, food plants and trees, flowering plants and hydroponic plants. 

6. The best sign that your microbes are healthy and stored well...

Is that there will be some creamy sludge floating on top of the solution from time to time. That is good; it shows the microbes are happy and health. 

7. Using Earthfood for the first time.

For plants to respond well to your Earthfood applications, the soil needs to be restructured and activated.

If using any pesticides and chemical fertilisers previously, wait 10-14 days before using Earthfood.

Instead, apply Earthfood as a spray directly to the foliage and allow the microbes to start work from within the plant to the root structure; that way, it will allow the microbes to bring your soil back to good health pretty quickly.

Earthfood contains diverse microorganisms designed to replace and replenish the soil’s natural ecosystem and increase the plant’s natural defence against pests and disease, naturally.

Optimum plant growth is possible only when all essential elements are adequately supplied and balanced and using Earthfood it is a smorgasbord of goodness bioavailable and chosen by the plant.

Vigorous plant growth supported only by and excessive supply of NPK (particularly nitrogen) can lead to a deletion of mineral in the soil without the support of other minerals. If the depleted mineral is needed to produce a require amino acid, it follows that the protein will not be properly formed.

Loosely speaking, this is where several issues, such as plant shelf life, taste, and health, arise. Earthfood addresses all these issues by unlocking and making various elements available during application and regular use.

Earthfood changes the dynamics of plant growth by rapidly and continuously accelerating the process of soil health and promoting the complex interaction of microbial activity while supplying the full range of nutrients to plants when and as they require them.

Repeated use of chemical fertilisers constantly reduces the organic contents in soil.

Over time, the ground becomes hard, compacted, and cannot retain nutrients and moisture naturally.

Not only does regular applications of Earthfood restore all soils to their highest function, but it can also save up to 70% of the watering required to maintain healthy and thriving plants, both indoors and out.

8. Earthfood shelf life

The microbes in our Earthfood are in a state of suspended animation, through our world protected intellectual property, just waiting for a food source to wake them up and begin working for you.

Stored in a cool location and out of direct sunlight, Earthfood will be ready for you when you are. Even after ten (10) years in the bottle of testing in the above conditions, the microbes were still perfectly viable.
