Why choose organic farming?

Organic Farming or Agriculture is define as “a holistic production management system which promotes and enhances agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil biological activity. It emphasises the use of management practices in preference to the use of off-farm inputs, taking into account that regional conditions require locally adapted systems. This is accomplished by using, where possible, agronomic, biological, and mechanical methods, as opposed to using synthetic materials, to fulfil any specific function within the system.” (FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission, 1999). The public has grown awareness to organic agriculture and purchasing organic products due to the following reasons: To protect the environment by soil degradation, To maintain biological balance in the soil which results to long-term soil fertility To recycle materials and resources To maintain the organic integrity and vital qualities of the product at all stages of production To do away of non-renewable resources like petroleum products as fertilizers and rely on renewable resources that can be acquired locally Organic agriculture generally prohibits products of synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, synthetic hormones and ionizing radiation. These strict standards presents many challenges for some crops are difficult to grow organically. Nevertheless, with the proper information and know-how’s, every commodity can be produced... read more

What is unique about our product?

IT IS MADE FROM A COLD FERMENTATION PROCESS Other fertilizers derived from fish, and other natural sources are heated and dried to improve shelf life. This effectively eliminates harmful bacteria but destroys valuable nutrients in fish and deactivates endogenous enzymes that can be beneficial to the plant. Amino-Plus Bio Fish fertilizer uses a unique preservation process that does not involve high temperature processes. It makes use of slow, low temperature, fermentation through the action of beneficial microorganisms. Beneficial microorganisms like Lactic Acid bacteria compete with other harmful pathogens, thereby inhibiting their growth. IT STINKS This may not be very appealing as a first impression but the “stink” actually gives this product its advantage among other foliar fertilizers. The fermented fish smell (almost similar to Bagoong, a Filipino fermented fish delicacy) is due to its heat-free, all natural process. It retains the natural enzyme present in fish. The distinct smell is due to the actions of enzymes and microorganisms when it produces natural anti-microbials such as lactic acid (similar to those found in your yogurt) , acetic acid (what you get from fermentation of vinegar) and bacteriocins (produced by bacteria that inhibits growth of other harmful bacteria)   IT COMES FROM OCEAN CAUGHT FISH Unlike other sources of animal proteins, Amino-Plus comes from ocean caught fish and not from farms, eliminating the risk of accumulated toxins and growth hormones being transferred to your plants. IT COMES FROM A FILLETING BY-PRODUCT – NOT TRASH FISH By-product from fish filleting process is carefully segregated and handled to prevent contamination. From fish filleting, it is transported and processed for production of fish fertilizer,... read more
