1. ORIENTAL HERBAL NUTRIENT INTRODUCTION Oriental Herbal Nutrient (OHN), a fermented extract of herbs, is used in Natural Farming to provide plants and soil microorganisms with micro-nutrients, which may optimize their resilience to environmental stresses (wind, heat, drought, etc.). OHN is a mixture of edible, aromatic herbs extracted with alcohol and fermented with brown sugar. It is used to discourage the growth of anaerobic, potentially pathogenic microbes and encourage beneficial aerobic microbes in the soil and on plants.). These herbs are used in the creation of OHN. MATERIALS NEEDED IN ORIENTAL HERBAL NUTRIENT 1. 3 or 5 of Plant material examples are: Garlic, Ginger, Onion, Siling Labuyo, Oregano etc. 2. Beer 3. Gin or Coconut Vinegar 4. Brown Sugar or Molasses 5. Jar or container 6. Paper and Rubber Band STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE 1. Chop equal amount of choice of herbs (Ex. 1kg of Garlic, Ginger and Onion). Any combination of the above will work. An easier way instead of chopping is pressing, hammering them to break the fibers. Place in the jar or container. Add beer to the level of the ingredients. Cover with paper and ensure with rubber band, keep in a dark, cool place. Leave for 12 hrs. 2. Add Molasses the amount of used individual herb (1kg molasses using above example) .Cover again with paper/rubber band and keep in a cool, dark place. Ferment for 7days. 3. Add Gin or Coconut Vinegar, equivalent to the amount of Beer that was used on day1. Cover again and keep in a dark, cool place. 4. After 10 days. Time to harvest the OHN. Just filter out the sludge. This is considered the first cycle 5. Repeat Step 2-4 for the 2nd cycle 6. Repeat Step 2-4 for the 3rd cycle USES AND RATES OF APPLICATION OF OHN

2. PROPER USAGE: 1-2tsp per Liter of water  PEST AND DISEASES o It's primarily used as an IPM input. It kills PM and downy mold very well, promoting good colonization of microbes. o Apply as a foliar spray on plants to repel insects. Apply during late afternoon or early morning hours. o When plants have soft rot or anthracnose add water soluble calcium (WCA 1000) to this solution.  ANIMAL o OHN keeps our chickens healthy. Use it 3x a week to strengthen their immune system. When the chickens are sick, they are given OHN for 3days straight. Use 2 Tablespoons for every liter of fresh water.  SOIL o Apply diluted OHN as a soil drench prior to planting to activate dormant soil microorganisms.  PEST AND DISEASES o It's primarily used as an IPM input.
