About Us

Wood Vinegar aims to create awareness about organic fertilizer, wood vinegar (Pyroligneous acid), and a global coalition connecting farmers with the resources they need to contribute to an ecologically sound food system and prosperous planet. The mission is carried out through the three pillars of the organization: information exchange, outreach and advocacy.
Wood Vinegar, also called Pyroligneous acid, Liquid Smoke or Mokusaku, is a dark liquid produced through the natural act of carbonization, which occurs when a biomass is heated in an airless container during charcoal/biochar production.

Vinegar

Wood vinegar can be applied to the soil surface to help increase the population of beneficial microbe sand to promote plant root growth..

Pine Tar

Wood tar is used as a wood preservative against termites and is also used as a wood stain. Wood tar is a viscous, blackish brown liquid obtained...

Biochar

Biochar is defined simply as charcoal that is used for agricultural purposes. Biochar is used by spreading it across agricultural fields...

Blog

Our blog features articles related to Wood vinegar, Wood Pine Tar, and Biochar. We discuss their many uses, benefits, origins and much more.

Wood Vinegar Production

Through foliar application of wood vinegar, the leaves become shiny and darker in color. This is due to the increase in chlorophyll through the effect of ester in the wood vinegar which promotes photosynthesis. This ester also helps in the formation of sugar and amino acids. This also results in a better taste of the produce. The healthier leaves naturally have a stronger resistance against pests and diseases.

Wood Vinegar

Our success and the use of wood vinegar as a natural fertilizer will increase the use and understanding of ecological agriculture practices throughout the world while advancing appreciation for farmers and their work. By empowering local farmers to develop site-specific adaptations of sustainable agriculture principles that serve them, their soil, and their community, woodvinegar.org will help build a prosperous future by connecting a global community of growers and creating a culture where these growers can thrive.

Five plant hormones are closely related to the growth and health of a plant

Five plant hormones are closely related to the growth and health of a plant. These are: gibberellin, cytokinin, auxin, ethylene and abscisic acid. Ethylene and abscisic acid contribute to the plant’s resistance against diseases and attacks from bacteria. An amino acid called methionine effects the formation of ethylene. The formation of etherlene is reduced by the excessive intake of nitrogen. On the other hand, growth hormones like gibberellin, cytokinin and auxin will be produced. As a result, the size of the plant increases but the resistance against diseases is reduced. The formation of oxidized ethylene from ethylene and the formation of methionine is accelerated by acids. The wood vinegar helps in their formation due to its acidity.

Furthermore, wood vinegar accelerates the process of transformation from nitrogen to amino acids

Furthermore, wood vinegar accelerates the process of transformation from nitrogen to amino acids. In other words, nitrogen is effectively transformed into amino acids. This will also stabilize the formation of methionine. As a result, oxidized ethylene is also produced. These processes contribute to higher plant resistance against various diseases. At 500 times dilution, wood vinegar can reduce the cluster value of water to 1/3. This means that the water is activated and can be easily absorbed by the plants because water with a low cluster value is in a very small mass. Each of these masses will hold one or few mineral elements. These elements can be easily taken into the plants.
