Prepared BD #500 Alex Podolinsky Method (BD Spray Preparation)

Prepared BD #500 stimulates seed germination, root growth, and humus formation. Use when planting, transplanting or turning in cover crops. Prepared BD #500 includes BD #502-507. It is the same as BD #500, but with added influences of the BD Compost Preps.

This preparation was created by Alex Podolinsky (Australia). In Australian practice, although “Prepared” 500 was initially used only after two years of application of regular BD #500, further experience now calls for its use from the very beginning of conversion to biodynamic agriculture in virtually every case.

How to use Prepared BD #500 Stir for one hour. in 3 to 5 gallons of water. Prepared Bd#500 should be applied in the afternoon. Spray immediately after stirring. One unit treats up to one acre.
