Beneficial Microbial Inoculant: Beneficial Microbial Inoculant is a liquid bacterial product used in agriculture and environmental management. The dilution ratio for Beneficial Microbial Inoculant can vary depending on its intended use. Here are some general guidelines: 

  1. For Agriculture: When using Beneficial Microbial Inoculant for agricultural purposes like soil conditioning or as a foliar spray, the typical dilution ratio is 1:1000. This means 1 milliliter of EM1 is mixed with 1 liter of water.
  2. For Household Cleaning: In household applications, such as cleaning and deodorizing, a stronger dilution is often used, around 1:100.
  3. For Animal Husbandry: In animal husbandry, Beneficial Microbial Inoculant is used for odor control and to improve the health environment of livestock. The dilution ratio is usually around 1:500 to 1:1000.
  4. For Waste Management: In waste treatment, like composting or septic treatment, a 1:100 dilution ratio is commonly used.

It's important to follow specific instructions provided by the manufacturer or relevant agricultural guidelines, as the optimal dilution ratio can vary based on specific conditions and applications. 

Hawaiian Volcanic Organic™ has developed a commercial product that is a testament to the power of nature, harnessing the rich microbial life fostered by the unique volcanic soil of Hawaii. This product is a concentrated solution of beneficial microbes, including bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms, all indigenous to the Hawaiian Islands.

Designed for use as a foliar spray, this innovative solution offers gardeners and farmers alike a multitude of advantages for their plants and soil. Here's how it is utilized and the myriad benefits it delivers

Utilization as a Foliar Spray

  1. Preparation: This ready-to-use product is carefully formulated to ensure the right balance of indigenous microbes. For application, it may need to be diluted with water following the guidelines provided, ensuring an optimal concentration that caters to the needs of various plants.
  2. Application Method: The solution should be sprayed directly onto the foliage of plants, ideally during cooler parts of the day such as early morning or late afternoon, to minimize evaporation and ensure maximum absorption by the plants.
  3. Application Frequency: While the specific needs of plants can dictate the frequency, a general recommendation is to apply the solution every 2 to 4 weeks throughout the growing season to support ongoing plant health and productivity.

Benefits of Hawaiian Volcanic Organic™ Product

  1. Nutrient Accessibility: The microbial action helps in fixing atmospheric nitrogen, solubilizing phosphorus, and mobilizing potassium along with other essential nutrients, making them readily available to plants.
  2. Disease Resistance: The beneficial microbes outcompete harmful pathogens on the plant’s surface, significantly reducing the likelihood of foliar diseases. They can also produce substances harmful to these pathogens, offering an added layer of protection.
  3. Stress Resilience: Plants treated with this microbial spray exhibit increased resilience to environmental stresses, including drought, salinity, and temperature extremes, by bolstering the plants’ inherent defense mechanisms.
  4. Growth and Yield Improvement: The symbiotic relationship fostered between the plants and microbes stimulates enhanced growth, leading to healthier plants and potentially higher yields due to improved root and shoot development.
  5. Eco-Friendly Solution: By leveraging indigenous microbes, the need for chemical inputs is reduced, promoting a healthier ecosystem by preserving the integrity of soil and water and encouraging biodiversity.
  6. Locally Adapted Microbes: The use of indigenous Hawaiian microbes means they are exceptionally well-suited to the local environment, providing a targeted and effective means of enhancing plant health and soil vitality.

Hawaiian Volcanic Organic™ microbial foliar spray stands out as a prime example of eco-innovation, blending traditional knowledge with modern science to offer a sustainable, highly effective solution for enhancing plant health and productivity while supporting the environment.

used it as a foliar spray and had great results. The plants look more vibrant and produced better than the unsprayed plants next to the sprayed plants

Liquid Microbial Spray

The HVO Liquid Microbial Spray is a type of effective microorganism (EM) product, which are microbial-based solutions known for their benefits in agriculture, especially in organic farming. Here's how your HVO Liquid Microbial Spray compares to other types of foliar sprays:

  • Microbial Content

    Both your spray and other EM-based products contain a mixture of beneficial microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria, yeast, and phototrophic bacteria. These microbes work synergistically to promote healthier soil and plant conditions, which is not a feature of all foliar sprays.

  • Mode of Action

    Unlike chemical-based foliar sprays that may directly supply nutrients or protect plants by killing pests and diseases, microbial sprays enhance the natural resistance of plants and improve nutrient uptake through the creation of a beneficial microbial environment. This can lead to sustainable agricultural practices with long-term benefits.

  • Environmental Impact

    Your HVO Liquid Microbial Foliar Spray, is likely to be more environmentally friendly compared to conventional chemical sprays. It supports soil health without the risks of chemical runoff or resistance building in pests and diseases.

  • Usage and Application

    While chemical and other biological foliar sprays are often targeted (e.g., specific nutrients or pest control), EM-based sprays like yours are more about creating overall plant and soil health. This broad-spectrum approach can help in various conditions but might be less immediately impactful in acute situations compared to targeted chemical treatments.

  • Cost-effectiveness

    Microbial sprays can be cost-effective in the long run by reducing the need for other inputs like fertilizers and pesticides, improving overall plant health, and increasing yield. However, the initial cost might be higher than some conventional sprays, and the effects might take longer to become visible.


What is mycelium?

Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus, consisting of a network of fine white filaments (hyphae). It is not a mold, although molds are a type of fungus. Mycelium plays a crucial role in the life cycle of fungi, including both molds and mushrooms. It is responsible for nutrient absorption and can spread over and into the substrate in which the fungus is growing. Essentially, when we refer to mycelium, we're referring to the part of the fungus that extends and exists mostly beneath the surface or within the growth medium, whereas what we often see above ground or on surfaces—the mushrooms or moldy patches—are the reproductive structures produced by the mycelium.
