Buy Frass – a rich fertiliser blend containing 80% frass and a 20% mix of biochar and wood vinegar.

Frass is an all-natural fertiliser made from insect manure that has up to two-hundred times more beneficial microbes than typical compost or worm castings and is more nutrient dense than typical compost or worm castings. Frass is also high in chitin, which activates natural plant defences against insect attack and soil-borne diseases including root rot. 

The frass used in this product is sourced from a local producer - Beyond Ag. We have combined this frass with Green Man Char's Biochar and Wood Vinegar to make a supercharged frass fertiliser blend.

Biochar provides a massive charged surface area to store nutrients and water and provides a complex habitat for beneficial soil microbes. Wood vinegar is rich in organic molecules and acts as a biostimulant, stimulating the growth of beneficial microbes and increasing the uptake of nutrients in plants.

All ingredients in this fertiliser are carbon-negative and produced using 100% sustainably sourced biomass from local Australian suppliers. The frass used in this product derives from black soldier fly larvae processing organic biomass; the biochar and wood vinegar is produced from the pyrolysis of pure woody biomass.

How to use

Frass can be mixed into the root zone with soil or applied as a top dressing for established plants.

This product is designed to be used as a standalone fertiliser and applied as required. Application rates and frequency vary depending on plant nutrient requirements. Frass can be used with other fertilisers and soil conditioners, however, care should be taken to not over-fertilise the soil.
