How to Make Fermented Plant Juice (FPJ) – Fermented Plant Juice is a form of indigenous microorganisms (IMO), a Korean technology that is similar to and cheaper to produce than effective microorganisms (EM) from Japan. A liter of EM costs P100 or even less. FPJ can be used to spray and deodorize a piggery and other biodegradable wastes to hasten its decomposition. Farmer entrepinoy can make organic fertilizer out of the biodegradable wastes from his farm and could save money from buying costly commercial fertilizer.
Procedures to make FPJ:
First pick part of kangkong, banana, camote tops or any succulent vegetable that would be used as a raw material before sunrise so that the energy of the crop is still intact.
Chop the plant parts and add 1 kilogram of molasses for every 1 kilogram of plant parts. Mix it thoroughly, place it in a jar, and then cover the jar with Manila paper or coupon bond.
Dig a six-inch-deep hole in an area that is not directly exposed to sunlight and place the jar in it. The jar can be placed also inside a room or in any cold area that is not exposed to sunlight.
After seven days, transfer the juice into a plastic container. Use an old cloth to filter substances in the juice that may clog the sprayer when spraying FPJ mixture. To make FPJ mixture, mix two tablespoons of FPJ to every 1 liter of water.
Spraying must be done either at four o’clock to six o’clock in the morning or at four o’clock in the afternoon onward for three times. Microorganisms are very alive at these times due to cold temperature. For faster decomposition, chop biodegradable wastes before spraying FPJ solution.
It takes at least a week to completely decompose the wastes, which can be used as a fertilizer. To use FPJ as deodorizer, spray or sprinkle it to manure and the foul smell would be gone.
