Hey there! This post is going to talk about jadam liquid fertilizers and their many benefits. Jadam Liquid fertilizer, or JLF for short, is a type of fertilizer that was made by extracting nutrients from organic material like leaf mold. It’s important to use an anaerobic process called putrefaction because it ensures that the JLF is completely safe and doesn’t contain any chemicals. When you’re ready to make your own JLF, you’ll need 1 cup or handful of leaf mold and organic materials like wild grass and garden crops (with chlorinated water allowed to settle for 24 hours). All together, it should be about 3 gallons worth in a bucket. It’s important that this is a real wild grass, too because the live organisms in the mixture will use it to produce new organisms, which will make your JLF even more potent. The bucket you choose should also have a lid so that it doesn’t dry out and form bacteria, which can ruin your JLF. I usually use an empty 6 gallon toilet tank because it’s easier to store and transport than something like a bucket.
Jadam Liquid Fertilizer, or JLF for short, is made from the chemical compounds that accumulate the most naturally in plants over time. In the Jadam Fertilizers, this means that the microbes in microscopic soil pockets will eat live microbes and convert it into a liquid that acts like a fertilizer. This liquid fertilizer is similar to kelp and seaweed extract, but much more concentrated and potent. JLF has all of the nutrients that plants need, and can be used for food crops or potted plants. Many people use JLF as a base for their hydroponic fertilizer because it contains everything you need for plant growth.
Once you’ve made your JLF, use 1/2 cup per gallon of water to feed your plants with, or mix it with 2 parts water and 1 part JLF (1/4 cup) in a spray bottle for foliar spraying or pest control applications. JLF is safe for humans, animals and the environment, but not every bacteria is. If you’re using JLF on your plants to fertilize them, be careful when applying it so that there’s no contact with your skin, as this can cause a skin rash. If you’re using it as fertilizer on your garden or lawn, ensure the area you plan to use it is clean and avoid touching the surface of it with your bare hands if possible.
When you’re done using your JLF, you can either keep it in its bucket/container or in a different sprayer for future use. If you plan to store it for a long time, it’s better to keep it in the bucket and make sure you put the lid on tight so that nothing leaks out or dries up. You can make this process even better by adding some water purification tablets and sealing the lid tight with duct tape, then shake the container well before spraying. This will ensure that your JLF is as safe as possible since tap water has been known to contain many contaminants.
Instructions on How to Make the Jadam Liquid Fertilize
Instructions on how to make the fertilizer follow below. All you need are some empty containers, water, and a few easy-to-find items such as dark leafy plants or kitchen scraps. Follow the instructions below for this in-depth guide on how to make liquid fertilizer with JADAM liquid fertilizer.
Gather the Ingredients
Once you have your tin cans, fill them with water, then gather the following ingredients: leaf mold (any type of decaying vegetable matter), organic material, water.
Steps to Make the Liquid Fertilizer
- Add organic materials (e.g., leaves, stems, grass clippings) to a bucket. This extra material provides an added boost of nitrogen. The organic materials should compose roughly two-thirds of the total bucket volume.
- Next add small branches, twigs and/or leaves to fill the bucket but leave a few inches at the top for stirring and adding water.
- Now pour water into the bucket so that it is about three-quarters full or until all of your organic matter is thoroughly moistened, whichever comes first. Use cool water because warm water will start the fermentation process sooner than desired.
- Add a handful of leaf mold, the final ingredient that is most important. The leaf mold should be roughly one hand-full in size.
Refer to the ingredients section above for how much and what type of material to add and follow this simple step.
Once you have all of your materials together, brew your fertilizer as follows:
- Stir the mixture thoroughly to make sure all of the ingredients are mixed into a fluid slurry, which is just a fancy word for being completely combined with water. This can be easily accomplished with a bamboo stick or even your hands.
- Pour the mixture into your tin cans one can at a time, making sure that each one is completely filled.
- Another option is to have someone else pour the liquid fertilizer into your buckets at the same time. A 5-gallon bucket can be easily filled in this way.
- Do not allow any excess light to get in as this will speed up the decomposition process and results in bubbles rising to the surface which can cause sediment problems. To prevent these bubbles from forming, use darkness to block any light, if possible.
- Fill the remaining empty buckets with water and seal them tightly so that no air can enter.
- You can also store excess liquid fertilizer in a 5-gallon pail, but only if you are going to use it within a week or two.
- To determine when to apply the liquid fertilizer, you must first calculate how much fertilizer is needed, and then apply that amount based on the ambient soil temperature. For example, if the soil temperature at planting time is 50 degrees F (10 C), then you would use one-half gallon, or 0.25 gallons per plant.
How to Apply Jadam Liquid Fertilizer to Your Plants
With the right quantity, you can apply JADAM by simply following the instructions above. As with any fertilizer, more is always better. Mix in a small amount of fertilizer at planting time and then every two weeks thereafter. If applying too much, plant will not be able to absorb all of the nitrogen it needs and may suffer from nutrient deficiency or imbalance.
How to Store Liquid Fertilizer
Storing your liquid fertilizer properly in a cool dark place is essential for storing it for later use. If you do not do so, it will degrade quickly and create additional work for you should you need to make another batch in the near future. To avoid these problems, follow these steps to store your fertilizer in an appropriate manner.
Storage of JADAM Liquid Fertilizer
After brewing, you can store the liquid fertilizer for up to one year if you follow the proper storage procedures. The proper way to store the fertilizer is in a cool dark place. The temperature should be between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit (10-15 degrees Celsius). To prevent degradation, avoid storing above freezing or freezing and make sure that it does not get exposed to too much light. Keep in mind that light itself will not degrade the liquid fertilizer; however, it will speed up the process by forcing unwanted bacteria into action more rapidly.
Preparation of JADAM Liquid Fertilizer
If you need to make more liquid fertilizer than the compost bin can produce, then the following process can be used to purge the organic material. It is important to use a compost bin that is tall enough for your materials (6-8 feet) and should be covered with a heavy tarp or lid with a tight fitting flange. Because as much of this material will be placed in your compost bucket, it is important that it does not get wet. After more than five minutes, if you will not have time to brew before storing, throw out any “condensed” liquid fertilizer in order to eliminate any potential contamination and diseases from growing.
Ingredients for Purging JADAM Liquid Fertilizer
Now that you have brewed the liquid fertilizer and have the buckets ready for storage, finish off the process by purging it. You need two or three buckets of water and three to five large branches (1″ diameter). Stir up the mixture in your bucket thoroughly until it is completely dissolved. Then pour it into your other half-gallon plastic bucket with a funnel and let any excess drain out. Next, fill the third bucket with water but do not stir it. Now drain all of this water on top of the first bucket, but do not stir it again to avoid environmental damage from stirring. Now place this second bucket on a tarp or other waterproof surface (do not allow it to touch the ground) and leave it for at least three hours. This will kill any unwanted bacteria, fungi and algae that may have gotten into the bucket. Be sure to do this process thoroughly, or you risk even more possible contamination by going against this procedure.
When you are ready to use your collection of JADAM Liquid Fertilizer, simply empty out your buckets and cover with a tight fitting lid. The liquid fertilizer can remain active for a year or more without degradation from light, excessive heat or moisture. If it has not been used within that time period, then there is no need to make another batch. Any remaining material that you cannot use in the first cycle can be used to extend the life of your compost; however, you will have to repeat this process about once a year.
How to Use Jadam Liquid Fertilizer
Stale, nutrient-deprived soil is the cause of a huge swath of agriculture-related problems such as plant diseases, poor growth, slow crop maturity, and poor water absorption. To combat this unsavory landscape, farmers are turning to liquid fertilizer additives that inject nitrogen directly into their soil. But where do you find these magic potions? Generally in local garden centers or at agricultural supply stores. Here’s how to use them and maintain healthy plants with Jadam Liquid Fertilizer!
Liquid fertilizer application
According to Jadam’s website, one gallon will cover about four acres of crops for about three months. For extensive planting, you will want to apply this as soon as possible after hilling. Make sure that you wait for the soil to dry before applying and that it is not windy when you apply this fertilizer. Apply using a sprinkler, sprayer or hose-end sprayer. For smaller areas it may be easier to simply use a lightweight garden hose and squeeze bottle, evenly coating the affected area with the fertilizer.
Liquid fertilizer benefit
Because liquid fertilizers are made from natural fresh ingredients they have the ability to be absorbed into your soil quickly and efficiently (which is not always the case with synthetic fertilizers). Jadam liquid fertilizer is made from fresh organic ingredients that are high in nitrogen thus giving your plants a boost when they need it most.
Directions for use
Once the soil has dried, apply Jadam Liquid Fertilizer to the bare soil. Look for the product name, JADAM ORGANIC, or use the PURE ORGANIC product on the label. Make sure that you don’t apply to grass or any other type of plant near areas with broadleaf weeds (it will kill these plants too). To prevent excessive rain from washing off your newly applied fertilizer we recommend using a plastic mulch or covering your lawn with a tarp during heavy rain. Jadam is a mixture of liquid organic fertilizer which feeds the root system of your crop giving it a quick, healthy boost to its roots. When used as directed, it will last at least 3 months in sub-irrigated and dry soil conditions.
Jadam Liquid Fertilizer can be used in compost. Since it is a liquid fertilizer and will dissolve in the compost, it will not be immediately visible. However, once the compost is finished, you can add Jadam to your garden or other overwintering area to boost plant growth and pest resistance.
If using Jadam as a mulch or as an irrigation water additive, apply lightly since liquid fertilizers can burn bare patches of earth. Because of these risks, we recommend using only light amounts of this product. Tend to your plants as they grow and make sure that your soil is well watered throughout their growth cycle (especially during hot dry times).
One way to keep your soil moist is to use a drip irrigation system, like the Micro Drip System. This is a great solution for businesses and smaller farms because it is cost effective and easy to use. Rather than using sprinklers that waste water, the Micro Drip System uses water efficient nozzles that avoid complete saturation of your plants. It also has the added benefit of a fertigation system which means that you control how much fertilizer goes into your plant’s root zone. Overall, the Micro Drip System provides healthier plants with more consistent water and fertilizer delivery over time so that you can have healthy crops all year long.

Drawbacks of Using Jadam Liquid Fertilizer
If you’re looking for a good liquid fertilizer, it’s important to know the facts. Read this article to find out what you should consider before deciding on a product.
- The first thing to look at is the NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) ratio of the fertilizer. A general rule of thumb is that plants prefer a 10:5:5 NPK ratio on low-light days and 7:10:14 on high-light days. You’ll likely want to choose a fertilizer that matches your specific needs, so also take into account other factors like what kind of soil you have and if you are using any additional nutrients.
- Next, keep in mind that you need to use an amount of liquid fertilizer equivalent to 1/2 the volume of your water solution. For example, a solution with a half-gallon capacity will need one cup of fertilizer.
- From there, it’s important to note that some kinds of liquid fertilizer are more concentrated than others. You’ll want to compare the concentration levels among several brands and choose the kind with the lowest concentration because those will last longer.
- You may read that the biggest drawback to using liquid fertilizers is the high cost and relatively short shelf life. In other words, many people conclude that they just don’t think it’s worth it because they have to buy so much more often. However, there are a few things to consider before making a choice.
- First of all, if you’re using commercial fertilizer then it’s important to realize that it’s actually not all that expensive. You might read that liquid fertilizers are as much as $40 per gallon, but that is actually only the price of the concentrated diluted solution. For example, the product we sell is $7.50 for 1-gallon concentrate.
- Also keep in mind that there is a formula behind how much liquid fertilizer you need to use and how long your supply will last, so you’ll be able to make an educated decision based on how much your plants need and how long you plan on using it.
- Finally, some people worry that they won’t be able to tell what’s in the fertilizer they’re using and how it might affect their plants. But, as you’ll learn here, this is actually not a problem. In fact, the only product on the market that comes from an FDA-approved laboratory is Jadam! So, if you want a high quality and carefully made fertilizer for your garden then don’t hesitate to select Jadam!
