Korean Natural Farming aka KNF, Is a style of gardening created my Cho Han Kyu , better known as Master Cho. It focuses on indigenous microorganisms, fermented products, lactic acid bacteria serum, as well as many other natural inputs.
While providing optimal plant nutrition, KNF will reduce the need for pesticides, and chemical fixes. Healthy plants are more resistant to pests, disease, mold, etc... Focusing on the health of the soil with natural inputs allows KNF grown plants to thrive even when conditions change to less than optimal.
Using Korean Natural Farming Practices will reduce the use of fertilizers, as well as help control erosion all while saving water. Plant health will improve, and disease and pest pressure will be reduced.
Here at Redbud Soil Company we make lactic acid bacteria serum in house. It would be considered the back bone of KNF. When added to your indoor organic soil grow you will notice a difference in plant vigor and health almost immediately.
Labs helps to unlock nutrients in your soil, and makes them available to your plants. This reduces the need for additional fertilizers, and cuts the amount of amending needed in your soil. First time users notice a deeper richer green in the color of their plants, and cannabis growers will notice their leaves are praying to the sky more than they are use to.
For a shelf stable version of Lactic acid bacteria serum, bokashi is a great alternative. It is made by spraying labs on a grain carrier, and then drying it out. Once dried, it can be stored for extended periods of time. Bokashi is a great alternative to labs when shipping is involved. With bokashi you don;t have to worry about the water weight. When shipping long distances this helps to reduce overall input costs.
Fermented Fruit Juices are simple preparations of fruits, sugars, and labs, that can be used throughout the growing season to provide nutrients, and probiotics to your soil. Depending on what is being fermented you can use specific ferments for vegetative growth, and others for the flowering period. Some ferments can be used throughout a plants life cycle. FFJ are a great addition to gardens that are already using labs, or bokashi.
When using a no-till living soil for growing marijuana, hemp, etc., the KNF style of growing pairs very well. With the use of simple probiotic techniques you can push the terpene profiles of your plants much higher than with other methods. Despite hydroponic growers thinking you can add a bottle of terpblaster5000 the last 2 weeks of flower, that's not how terps are produced.
With KNF inputs your plant will develop terpenes its entire life while in flower. That is why the consensus says that the terpene profile of no0till living soil plants using knf inputs can't be beat. No only will knf help with oil production, but you will notice a higher visibility of densely packed trichomes. All of this can be achieved naturally with no harm to the end user.
No matter your skill level, the addition of knf inputs into your organic garden will bring an additional level of quality, and security to any size garden. This is why we have small home growers all the way up to large commercial growers using our KNF inputs to provide the very best end product for their customer base.
