To promote the health of your home orchard, this kit contains: 1 gal Fish Hydrolysate, 1 qt Neem Oil, 1 quart EM-1 (effective microbes), 1 gal Liquid Kelp, and 1 pint of Karanja Oil. These are the key ingredients in the Holistic Spray recipe developed and recommended by Michael Phillips and the Holistic Orchard Network.
The five components work together to enhance tree and fruit growth and help ward off disease, especially during the primary infection window in spring. Includes all the ingredients needed except biodegradable dish soap and molasses. Assuming a rate of ~1½ gal of spray to cover a mature tree on standard rootstock to the point of runoff, the amounts in this kit will be enough to cover 7 trees for one year, though this will vary depending on your situation.
