    What can we use Lactobacillus Serum for? I use it to break down organic materials for fertilizers, and it is especially useful when making my homemade fish hydrolysate fertilizer.

    Here are more uses for this stuff, copied from the web:

    Lactobacillus bacteria used in Composting

    One of the major workhorse beneficial indigenous micro-organism used in natural farming is lactobacillus. This particular beneficial microorganism is often used in composting for stopping foul odors associated with anaerobic decomposition. Lactic acid bacteria thrive and feed on the ammonia released in the decomposition normally associated with foul odors. So if you need to decompose or ferment wastes and stop foul odors, lactic acid bacteria is the specific bacteria to use. Its application in organic farming is enormous.

    Lactobacillus used in Aquaculture

    In aquaculture, one of the problem is related to water quality. Poor water quality stresses the fish which in turn stunts their growth and affects their health. This is very evident especially in high density and tank aquaculture. The ammonia produced through fish excretions pollute the water and stress the fish. Regular addition of lactobacillus beneficial microorganisms to the water, minimizes the ammonia problem, if not stopping it completely. It helps hasten or complete the denitrification by converting wastes into forms not harmful to fish.

    Lactobacillus used in Agriculture

    Spraying a diluted solution of lactic acid bacteria serum on to a plant and soil helps plant growth and health. As it is applied to the soil or the leaves, these beneficial bacteria aid in the decomposition process, thus allowing more food to be available and assimilated by the plant. Plants go crazy when given this stuff.

    Lactobacillus used as a Pro-Biotic

    Lactic acid bacteria are also known to produce enzymes and natural antibiotics aiding effective digestion and has antibacterial properties, including control of salmonella and e. coli. Farmers see an improvement in the general health of the plants and animals, better nutrient assimilation, feed conversion and certain toxins eliminations.

    Making your own lacto is easy. It requires a bowl of rice, some water and a gallon of whole milk, and to make a very useful garden product, some molasses. In future installments, if I see interest in natural organic gardening, I will show how it is done.
