How to Make Biostimulants from Organic Wastes

Please join us on this all-ages Saturday morning at the Dallas AgriLife Research Center to make Biostimulants!

During the interactive morning session Water Is Alive will demonstrate some of the ways biostimulants can be used to improve plant nutrient uptake by applying biostimulants and mycelium such as mycorrhizae to the plants roots. The first 10 participants will receive a gallon of onion-based biostimulant and a sample of mycorrhizae fungi. Please join us on this all-ages Saturday morning at the Dallas AgriLife Research Center where you will: Make biostimulants by fermenting your organic kitchen wastes. Take a tour of where we are building soil at the Research Center from agricultural by-products to grow and test organic waste-based biostimulants on Bermuda grass. Learn about how to apply biostimulants to Bermuda grass and garden plants and why that can help improve the water quality in our watershed and the health of your plants. Learn about the science of why fermenting onion juice, and many other fermenting agricultural by-products, can ward off insects, and which common insects can be controlled by the application of your home-made biostimulant. Learn about the Trinity River Bioremediation Demonstration Project and how strategically applying fermenting agricultural wastes to impaired waterways can improve water quality. Water is Alive is a Texan by Nature Conservation Partner.
