Wood Vinegar for Organic Agriculture

Wood Vinegar Premium Organic Fertilizer

Studies showed that when wood vinegar was used as feed supplements in poultry, salmonella bacteria, which are responsible for gastrointestinal diseases of chickens, were eliminated.

Results:

(a) In chicken egg production, farmers claimed that their hens improved

(b) Their egg-laying performance improved

(c) Had better rearing characteristics

(d) Improved their hatching efficiency

(e) It also improved the quality of eggs such as


  • Better taste
  • Reduced cholesterol content
  • Had harder egg shells


Mixed with water at rates of between 1:500 and 1:600 (1 liter of wood vinegar with 500 liters of water). Wood vinegar reduces the cluster of water to 1/3 and  can adjust bacterial levels in the digestive tract which improve the absorption of nutrients from feed and mineral elements of water .

Application:

Livestock


Wood Vinegar as supplement for livestock feed. Mixed with livestock feed and water at rates of between 1:200 and 1:300. Wood vinegar can adjust bacterial levels in the animal digestive tract which improve the absorption of nutrients from feed.

Application:

The result is non-stimulating Deodorization that is non-toxic and leaves no residue, creating a good-bacteria forming environment that is healthy and fresh for your livestock.

(d) Improve feed efficiency

(c) Increase milk production substantially

(b) Improve fertility rate

(a) Improved meat quality

Wood Vinegar is suitable for poultry, and other livestock like sheep, cattle, etc. Wood Vinegar is an all-natural livestock deodorant derived from plant extracts. The skin friendly plant chemicals bind themselves to odor-causing agents on the animal’s body and wastes, effectively breaking down, absorbing and transforming them into a natural acidic state and destroying and suppressing bacteria, viruses and other odor causing pathogens.  It effectively controls the production of odor causing bacteria on the animal and the farm resulting in healthier livestock and increasing yield. In cattle, it is said that wood vinegar alsoPig

Studies on swine production showed that sows improved their performance. They became healthier, their fertility rate improved, and piglet size became uniform. It has been suggested that wood vinegar can improve the performance of weanling pigs by improving the nutrient digestibility and reducing harmful intestinal coliforms. Moreover, the performance of pigs fed with wood vinegar was found to be better than those fed with organic acid. The fatteners also improved their feeding efficiency and meat quality. The foul odor from the manure of the pigs was also reduced. Furthermore, reports from farmers indicated that their sows increased their milk production and diarrhea among piglets were prevented or cured.

What are the claimed human applications of wood vinegar? Wood Vinegar is thought to have great venom-removal power. The application of Wood Vinegar to insect bits can help to draw those toxins out of your body.

Wood vinegar, or pyroligneous acid, is produced through thermal decomposition of wood or other vegetable materials in a low-oxygen environment. In the process charcoal is created and several gases are emitted. Some of these gases are condensed and can be refined into wood vinegar, oil and tar. A simplified version of the current process is shown below. Next to wood vinegar, tar, charcoal and some gases are also products. All these byproducts have their usages. Charcoal, for example, can be used for cooking.

As you can see, the only input material is leftover wood, which is sufficiently present at small farmers in Thailand. This is the main reason why we have chosen to focus on small farmers in Thailand. In the Netherlands for example, farmers do not have the amount of waste wood to produce enough wood vinegar for their land. This would mean that it would not be self-sustainable. In Thailand however, this is the case on small scale farms. They have enough leftover wood every week to produce the necessary amount of wood vinegar.

Wood vinegar can also be used as food additive, mostly known as ‘Liquid Smoke’. You might know the smell of wood vinegar, it has an acrid smoky odor and is for example used in barbecue sauce.

Aside from water (80%-90%), it consists mostly of acetic acid, acetone and a small amount of methanol. In total there are more than two hundred organic compounds in wood vinegar. Because of this large amount of compounds, there are a lot of different kinds of wood vinegar and it has multiple usages.

The most important property for this project is the usage of it as pesticide and soil improvement supplement. However, it also can be used as food supplement for farm animals. The egg production and quality increase when wood vinegar is added to the feed of chicken. Adding wood vinegar to the feed of pigs increases the nutrient digestibility.
