Re: [fukuoka_farming] Wong......Seedballs
I use laterite earth, compost, the seeds and mix it up
with liquid EM. I do not store the balls for later
use. As soon as the balls are ready, maybe in a day
or two, I will place them out into the fields.
However, I ALWAYS seed during rainy seasons. In my
experience, seed balls dry out very fast due to the
lack of protection from sun, wind and low humidity,
and will not work without regular watering (more than
normal) or without some form of cover (eg mulch of
dried grass, etc.). But if seeded during rainy
season, my rate of success is high, and the savings in
labour is worthwhile.
