Hi Neptune, Bactivate looks like a new way of improving soil. Their site is very interesting so am going to learn more about this new approach to improve soil quality.

Thanks for posting re this product.

Did anyone every use that cow horn stuff that they made a big deal of a few (?) years back.

They were sying that something like a spoonfull would reactivate an acre of soil but never heard much more about it.

Balinbear, I remember that claim, looked at it and thought a cow horn full of manure would just about feed an indoor plant for 12 months.

The deep litter poultry manure is great, I use a couple of handfuls in the 8" pots about every 6 weeks. That relates to a cow horn full every 6 weeks.

Neptune, just went and looked at the makers site of this product and biochar, not much info, coal and baccilus bacteria, unless you have found more than me ,could you tell us your possible use of them or if you have nematodes. If you have a microbal difficiency can you let me know and the amount of land that requires the addition of said product.

Actually Dave , I was asking a question to find out information on this subject, so I could make a decision if I warranted going out to buy the product

I actually reckon you could make your own fairly easily Neptune. I found a DIY recipe to make Bokashi compost activator... this is basically the same kind of thing. I wrote a post about it a while back. You can see it here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I reckon with a bit of scaling up you could do this in a garbage bin and then spread it out under your lupin mulch and it would do the same thing it was intended to do in the Bokashi composter.
