Insects frass, or simply insect excrement, has been nourishing our forests and jungles - that's why you don't need to manually fertilise nature, because insect frass, which contain high nutrients and beneficial amounts of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus (NPK), have always been naturally fertilising the Earth.
To prove the efficiency of our Hermet Frass, our team of agronomists have been active in collaborating with the Dept of Agriculture, Johor, as well as stakeholders in the application of Hermet Frass.
We applied our frass vs a control "X", which is the standard farmer practice over the growth period of leafy vegetables spinach, or also known as bayam in Malay.
This was what we observed with the usage of:
Hermet Frass - 7kg
Control X - 50kg
Yield: Comparable, but the plants that grew with Hermet Frass had visibly less weed, and longer root growth!
Longer root leads to better growth of plant as the plant would be able to tap into more nutrients inside the soil, while also not dependent on the water irrigation.
Check out more pictures from our happy agronomists:
Picture 2 and 3 depict the length of root with the plant using Hermet Frass, in comparison to the line-up of plants using Control X - see how significantly shorter the roots are!
The Black Soldier Fly larvae is an all-rounder beneficial insect as protein and oil for animal feed, great at valorising biomass, and its frass great for plants! Truly a superhero.
