Biodynamic Horn Manure (500)

This is the original soil spray made from fresh biodynamic cow manure stuffed in a cow horn and buried in rich biodynamic topsoil for 4-6 months over the winter. In winter the soil is filled with Sun-life-forces. These forces cause seed germination; root development and growth of the plant as well as humus formation in the soil. These forces described…

Biodynamic Manure Concentrate (MC)

This compound preparation was developed by Maria Thun, who called it Barrel Compost, as a way of getting the influence of cow manure, the biodynamic compost preparations, potentised basalt dust and a living form of calcium in the form of crushed eggshells out onto the soil. Because the manure concentrate is pre-stirred for an hour in its manufacture it only…

Biodynamic Paste

Members will know this product as Tree Paste and how fantastic it is for not only trees, but roses, grapevines and other shrubs. We hope you’ll like the name change which we feel reflects the wider uses of the paste. Winter is the ideal time to be using it. A 10kg bucket will generally cover about 5 trees (to 3m…

Biodynamic Soil Activator

This preparation was developed by Harvey Lisle and also independently by Anders Skarlind for the treatment of badly degraded soil either from chemical use or erosion or compaction through stock or excess mechanical cultivation. It contains, in minute amounts, all of the biodynamic preparations – 500 to 508 as well as horn basalt, horn clay and crushed eggshells. These are…

Combined Soil Preparation (CSP)

This compound preparation was developed by Biodynamic Agriculture Australia to incorporate the benefits of the horn manure, the manure concentrate, winter horn clay and fermented equisetum into the one soil spray. Each of these ingredients is included at the same rates as if they were to be used separately, ie 1 ha of combined soil preparation contains 85gm of horn…

Dorrigo Basalt Crusher Dust and Palagonite

These igneous rock dusts remineralise the soil and supply trace elements that may be lacking. The finer dust in these products means that normal weathering processes will release minerals more rapidly. These two rock dusts also benefit soil with their paramagnetism. They can be spread out on the soil or incorporated into the compost as it is being made. The…

Drought Breaker Kit

Is your garden dry? Are your stock thirsty? Crops dying? DO YOU NEED RAIN? If you answered – YES, it’s time to do a ‘Biodynamic Rain Dance’ and a little Sequential Spraying, to bring on the rain. HOW DOES IT WORK? “Sequential Spraying” refers to the technique of spraying all nine of the biodynamic preparations (included in The Drought Breaker…

Equisetum Arvense (508)

Equisetum is the ninth of the biodynamic preparations indicated by Rudolf Steiner in his lectures. Its purpose is to regulate the watery element brought on by too strong or too weak moon forces. In other words use of equisetum is able to curb the strong moon forces (too much water) and encourage those forces when they are too weak (not…

Fish and Seaweed Concentrate

These liquid manures, fermented using the biodynamic compost preparations, are an excellent tonic for all plant growth and also stimulate the soil life. They supply trace elements and sea minerals essential for plant growth and strengthen the plant in times of stress. They are usually applied as soil sprays but can also be used as a foliar spray. We sell…

Horn Basalt

This preparation is made by stuffing cow horns with fine basalt dust and burying them over the six months of summer. Horn Basalt can be applied to a field as an atmospheric spray to increase the potency of any application of mineral basalt or rock dust. When used in this manner you will find that you will only need 10%…

Horn Silica (501)

In the first lecture of the Agriculture Course Steiner says “Plant life as we know it today can thrive only when these two forces – the forces of substances like lime and like silica – are in equilibrium and are working properly together”. The substance which helps establish this equilibrium and ensures that the lime and the silica (two very…

Palagonite

Palagonite – our new Basalt Dust Product As Min-Plus (BAA’s previous basalt dust product) is no longer available, BAA has sourced Palagonite as a substitute from mines in Queensland. The freshwater lake in which the diatoms formed the diatomaceous earth deposits at Mt Silvia were also the formative environment of palagonite, which formed from successive lava flows entering the lake…

Winter Horn Clay

Horn Clay is the key in boosting the ebb and flow of the plant’s sap resulting in a lively exchange between the roots and tops. Winter horn clay is made from horns stuffed with clay and buried with horns stuffed with manure over the winter. It is sprayed on the soil by adding it to the horn manure at 10gm/ha…
