BIOFERTILIZER we bought reluctantly

We bought something during the last MAHA 2008 held in Serdang which is close by. A gallon sized container of Organic Fertilizer and Bio Immunizer of Nutri products. A bit expensive, but we somehow decided to buy them. We were given 500ml Nutri spray for free.

Too add to the collection of fertilizer, we bought 40 Kg bag of processsed poultry manure at RM 45 on a recent trip to Sungai Buloh, the haven for plant lovers. That will last for quite sometime.

What is MAHA?
MAHA 2008:
Malaysia, Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition 2008 (MAHA 2008). Hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry and organised by Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA), MAHA 2008 was the biggest event of the year serving the Agro-Based Industry. Being awarded by The Malaysian Book of Records as the Largest Exhibition in Malaysia, MAHA 2008 was undoubtedly the largest industry gathering in the South East Asia region. MAHA 2008 was regarded as a 'must attend' for the industry to be updated with the latest innovations and solutions and to do business. Over 950 local and international exhibitors had showcase their latest solutions to the industry.

So, our plants has been sprayed with the two products on weekly basis. For the moment, 500 ml is enough for the spray. We mix the two, fertilizer and immunizer for the weekly spray. The plants look healthy. We have reduced the use of NPK 15:15:15 chemical fertilizer ever since. Now, the stock of NPK fertilizer bought in Perak sometime early last year is finished. It was much cheaper then, now is rocket high!

I find this article, a country report by Khairuddin Abdul Rahim, Malaysian Institute for Nuclear technology Research, very interesting and helpful: click> ~ Country Report of Malaysia
which explains the perception, demand and promotion of Biofertilisers in Malaysian Agriculture. Another article by fao click> ~ Fertilizer use by crop in Malaysia is enlightening too.


  1. Hello Bangchik and Kakdah!

    I have to tell you that I love your site! I want to introduce myself.....My name is Ben Fairfield and I am one of the founders of The Urban Garden Project™. The Urban Garden Project™ is the initiative to encourage Americans to learn from history, become more self-reliant, save a significant amount of money, and eat healthier, all as a result of planting their own urban garden! The goal of The Urban Garden Project™ is to encourage and catalogue the creation of 100,000 urban gardens by 2020. We know that this is a sizeable goal, but we will accomplish it 1 garden at a time!

    As a result of your successful blog and your obvious passion for gardening I was hoping that you would visit our website at to learn more about the project. It costs nothing to support the project; we simply need help getting the word out to the world so that we can begin to catalog existing or new urban gardens. It would also be great to be able to add you to our garden catalog and link to your site through our blogroll! The official kick off for the project is April 1st 2009 and we are busy creating videos, tutorials, product reviews and more to make visiting worth everyone’s time!

    I am hoping that as a result of our shared passion for gardening you can help us in spreading the word about The Urban Garden Project™. Again, your support costs nothing. Our mission is pure and we hope that you can come along side us in this project to grow the gardening community and the number of urban gardens!

    Thank you so much for your time and we are looking forward to you visiting our site and letting us add your garden to our growing catalog of gardens from across the world!

    Have a great day!

    Ben Fairfield
