Tobacco Dust fertilizer-used as pesticide

Tobacco Dust fertilizer-used as pesticide

Tobacco dust fertilizers contain high organic compounds, which improves the soil chemical structure by improving Ions structure, electrical conductivity and nutrient levels. Apart from this refining the water intake capacity, water retention capacity and improves the soil physically.

The tobacco dust fertilizers reduces the soil bulk density while its increases the organic carbon content (OC), soil holes and infiltration of the soil has stated that the carbon provision of the carbon (C) through the amendments such as tobacco dust leads to the facility of the energy sources to the microorganisms in the soil and make them energetic in the soil that cause of the aeration source /oxygen distribution into the soil.

Uses of Tobacco Dust Powder :-

1. In fertilizer

2. In lawn

3. In Pesticide

Necessary ingredients:-

1. Dry Tobacco Leaves (Cigarette Buds)

2. Mild liquid soap

3. Bowl or bucket

4. Strainer or cheesecloth

5. Container with lid

6. Spray Bottle

Preparation method:-

1. Put 1 cup of tobacco leaves (cigarette buds) in 1 gallon hot water.

2. Add 10 drops mixed light liquid soap. Soap helps homemade spray adhere to plants.

3. Steep the solution for at least 30 minutes.

4. Pour the solution through a mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a bucket or bin with a lid. Keep the mixture on hand for up to a month.

5. Put the mixture in some quantity in the spray bottle.

6. Spray the bottom part of leaves on affected plants. Cover the leaves thoroughly with the spray solution.

7. Spray the lower part of the plant’s stem and the surrounding soil. For large-scale plantings, pour the solution from the bucket onto the soil.

8. Refill spray bottle as needed for foliar applications, or pour the solution from the bucket onto areas with severe ground pest infestations.

Uses: –

Nicotine spray are a traditional treatment for many types of pests, including whiteflies, gants, root and leaf aphids, thrips and lefaminers. While commercial nicotine sprays are so powerful that they can kill many beneficial insects as plant predators, homemade “tobacco juice” is short-lived and much milder. Used sparingly, it may be an important member in your arsenal of natural pest control.

Benefit: –

Potassium and phosphorus, which can provide essential nutrients to the soil and plant. The local data of the Department of Agriculture (DA) also showed that when tobacco dust is mixed with organic compost, then its nitrogen content has a positive effect on vegetable and home-grown plants.

Warning

1. If using tobacco juices on edible plants, restrict your spray schedule to early growth, and apply it several weeks before expected harvest. Nicotine can stay in the plant’s system for many weeks.

2. Tomatoes, chilli and eggplants, which are in the same nightshade family as tobacco, are susceptible to tobacco mosaic disease. Check your nursery information to see if  your nursery  plants are bred to be resistant to the disease. If you are not sure, then skip the tobacco juice treatment for these plants.

Epsom Salt

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is the best use in the garden – one of which is as a insect resistant and pesticide.

Spraying and sprinkling are two of the most effective ways to using these magnesium rich salts to combat bugs.

Hydrated magnesium sulfate aka epsom salt contains two important elements: –

1. Those who need to maintain the optimum health of plants.

2. Magnesium plays an important role during photosynthesis.

3. It is also necessary by plants for the proper functioning of many enzymatic processes.

4. Seeds also required magnesium to germinate. Sulfur aids plant with many functions including amino acids production, increase root growth, and the formation of chlorophyll. This mineral also gives coal crop and Aliums their signature flavors. Fertilize onion, broccoli and cauliflower with Epsom salt to get healthier, sweeter-flavor vegetables. Use Epsom salt on tomatoes, chillies and roses plants grow stronger with more blossom. Epsom salt use as a normal fertilizer, Epsom salts are a cheap way to give healthy nutrients throughout your garden. An Epsom salt solution is also a great way to replenish magnesium and sulfur levels in depleted potting soil.

Uses of Epsom salt: –

1. Mix one tablespoon of Epsom salt with one gallon of water.

2. Apply to garden plants as a foliar-spray once every two weeks.

3. When feeding rose plant, use one tablespoon of salt per foot of the plant’s height mixed in a gallon of water. Spray once in the spring when the leaves begin to appear and again after rose starts bloom.

4. for vegetables, sprinkle a tablespoon of Epsom salts around each seedling as soon as they are transplanted in the garden. Repeat this feeding following the first bloom and fruiting. Mix two tablespoons of salt in one gallon water and use this solution in place of normal watering once per month.

5. Mix one cup of the salts in five gallons of water to make Epsom salt spray. Fill into a spray bottle and apply to the affected plants.

6. this will work to burn slugs and beetles, ensuring they keep their distance.

7. An easy choice, that you apply the application on every plant in the second week, sprinkle the salts around the base of your plants. This will not only deter pests. Rather increase nutrition absorption, as magnesium helps plants roots take up important nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur.

3. Cinnamon fungicide control

1. There is a fungal-based problem ranging from disease, which begins to grow in small seedling plants.

2. Cinnamon helps prevent this problem by killing the fungus. It also works to separate other fungal problems in older plants such as slim mold and mushroom infection in gardens.

Pesticides

Pesticides

Pesticides is a substance that interrupts or kills organisms. Which we present as pests, harmful insects, or micro bacteria, which cause disease. Natural insecticides are such insecticides, which are usually made by other organisms to protect themselves, which are obtained from natural sources such as minerals or plants.

 

Most people believe that natural insecticides are always safer and more ecologically friendly than human-made pesticides, and this is mostly true, but this is not always the case. For example, nicotine is a natural insecticide found in tobacco leaves, and cigarette smoke contains highly addictive components. But in reality, most modern synthetic pesticides are more poisonous than them. If you claim that “natural = secure” then there is little doubt, because some natural insecticides are highly toxic.

Actually natural pesticides are more secure and more environmentally friendly than conventional pesticides. Since they are also very effective natural insecticides, most home and garden pests should be your first choice for control.

Pesticides come in various forms. While most people connect the term insecticide to those chemicals, which are sprinkled or dusted on food crops.

There are many types of pesticides available. 

1. Fungicide – Designed to eliminate or control the fungus. Plants can also be made to present specific forms of harmful fungus.

2. Herbicide- Designed to eliminate or reduce the presence of aggressive plant species and weeds.

3.  Pesticides – Focus on pressing, hitting, fooling, eating one or more types of insects or stopping nuisance.

4. Bactericidal- Designed to prevent the spread of one or more types of bacteria.

5. Bats- This product is designed to catch or kill large insects which are found in rabbits and dogs.

6. Repellents- Instead of eliminating or subtracting their number, insects have been created to reverse.

7. Rodentides- The chemical is used to control the rodent.

8. Luures- To make the chemists attractive for pests or to entice them with the ultimate intention to kill pesticides.

Benefits of natural pesticides:

1. Eco-friendly, safe for user / applicant and very effective when used correctly.

Disadvantages of natural pesticides:

1. Small residual activity (some users consider it a benefit) can be more expensive than traditional conventional pesticides.

2. To a lesser extent it can be insect-specific. Especially when compared to new synthetic pesticides.
