From various organics, processed by traditional production methods, which generates quality wood vinegar suitable for various applications in agriculture sector:
To be used for prevention and elimination of plant pests such as white ants, termites, plant lice, brown grasshoppers, cicadas, etc.
Can be used as absorbent for leaves, to enchance the efficiency of the substance like follar sprays sprayed on leaves. So that the substances can be absorbed more efficiently through the pores of g leaves.
Wood vinegar sprayed on to plants sticks firmly ont he surface plants as well as pests, reduces the loss of sprayed substances otherwise washed away easily and distributes evenly on leaves and stems.
Stimulates the growth of plants as the dust particles of foliar sprays of wood vinegar sprayed ont he plants and leaves, coagulates and are well absorbed into the pores of the leaves thus increasing the growth and the yield of the plants.
Beech-Oak-Red Bakau– has strong tannins and Wood vinegar extracted from it has a strong gemicidal effect due to its high acidity and the presence of germicidal ingredients such as methanol and phenol. The microbes first killed by wood vinegar are bacili which have no spores, and some hyphomycetes which are weak in acid. However, when wood vinegar is diluted 20 times, it greatly increases the concentration of microbes in the soil.
Plants and microbes produce a substance named acetyl coenzyme from acetic aid. Acetyl coenzyme itself is then converted into various substances which facilitate the growth of plants and microbes. Wood vinegar usually is able to reduce soil diseases through its ability to destroy harmful microbes and encourage growth of helpful ones.
Wood vinegar both has a direct germicidal effect, and an indirect, prophylactic effect through changing the biota on the leaf surface. When leaves are temporarily acidified, it prevents the increase of germs.
The most conspicuous benefit of spraying wood vinegar on leaves is the vinegar’s ability to strengthen plants’ natural resistances to diseases and to increase the permeability of agricultural chemicals. The bottom line, wood vinegar is beneficial to plants.

Wood Vinegar Is a Safe and Reliable Product
Wood Vinegar is pure wood vinegar (tree cell fluid). It has not been condensed, diluted or mixed with any similar substances. The product is made by placing the natural smoke solution in a storage tank, ageing to naturally condense and settle, and then filtering the solution with activated carbon for refinement (to eliminate minute impurities). BioOrganic wood vinegar is a complete and pure wood vinegar.
Poor Derived Vinegar Is Hazardous to Animals and Food
Be cautious of wood vinegar derived from unspecified sources or wood type. During charcoal product testing, charcoal products are classified by wood type. Products that are not derived from a safe tree type and undefined products are not permitted to treat as charcoal. Similarly, the wood type used as a raw material in wood vinegar products must be clearly defined.
Recognising Good Wood Vinegar
- Wood vinegar that contains foreign elements or appears dirty when a small amount is placed in a glass container is poor quality. A good quality product has a clear yellowish brown to reddish brown tone. The color should be similar tot he pleasing hue of black tea, beer or wine.
- The wood vinegar should not have an offensive odor. Wood vinegar that has a strong odor is a synthetic product containing a substance such as glacial acetic acid to adjust the pH.
- The pH value should be around 3. Higher extraction temperatures result in higher acidic values.
- The specific gravity of wood vinegar should be around 1.015 at a liquid temperature of 15 C. Wood vinegar extracted at higher temperatures has a specific gravity. Please note that the specific gravity varies greatly when methods of production differs.
- You can also identify a good wood vinegar by lab testing. The wood vinegar is acceptable if the liquid remains transparent at the neutral point, and if the odor remains the same as the initial odor without abnormalities. The chemical test must prove that the liquid is the cell fluid(cellulose).
Dosing Wood Vinegar Guideline
The generally accepted standard for applying wood vinegar is at the dilution of between 300-to-1 and 1000-to-1. Concentrations under 300-to-1 can damage plants resulting in the following symptoms:
- Spots on leaves
- Plant growth stops temporarily
- Growth is accelated, delaying the maturing of fruit.
Guidelines on Use of Wood Vinegar: Frequency
To improve crop quality, the following standards for spraying wood vinegar are being adopted in Europe.
FRUITS. Wood vinegar is applied 2 or 3 times, or once every 15-20 days, during the growing season, up until about 15 days before harvest. By applying before the harvest, the esters in wood vinegar accelerate the fermentation of amino acids and sugar. In the case of tangerines, wood vinegar should be applied to shaded trees or when levels of sugar in the fruits are expected to be low due to cloudy weather. Wood vinegar encourages the production of sugar amino acids and improves aroma.
VEGETABLES spraying before harvest improves taste and quality and may delay wilting.
For fruits and leaf vegetables that are harvested over a long period apply wood vinegar 2 or 3 times every 15-20 days starting just after the beginning of harvest time.
For fruit trees, once the fruits have reached mature size and start ripening – in the case of tangerines, just before they start coloration – apply wood vinegar 1 or 2 times every 20 days until 15-20 days before harvest.
Soil sterilisation: Diluted with clean water at the ratio of 1: 50-100, sprayed tot he soil.
Reducing insect infestation: Diluted with clean water at the ratio of 1:300-500, foilar spray or root irrigation.
Seedlings: Diluted with clean water at the ratio of 1: 800-1000, foilar spray or root irrigation (first applied at second leaf stage) at intervals of 15 days.
Growing and mature plants: Diluted with clean water at the ratio of 1: 500-700, foilar spray or root irrigation at the intervals of 15 days.
Enriching the soil: Dilute the wood vinegar with water (1:200 ratio 1 part wood vinegar and 200 parts water) and sprinke it to the soil before planting. Application rate is 50 liters of solution to one compost.
Fertilisation: Dilute one part wood vinegar with 200 parts water and spray it to the leaves once a month. Dilution ratio can be changed to 300 parts water for the succeeding applications.
Seed germination: Dilute one part wood vinegar with 200 parts water then soak the seeds for 24 hours.
Pest repellent or deodoriser: Dilute one part vinegar with 20 parts water and spray the plant with it or tot he substrate in case of odor removal.
