If you're not familiar with BSFL Frass, you might be wondering what it is and why it's so important. Frass is essentially the waste produced by insects as they eat and digest their food.
While this might not sound very exciting, frass plays a vital role in the health of our ecosystems, and it's a necessary part of sustainable agriculture. In addition to providing essential nutrients for plants, frass also helps control pests and pathogens. In this post, we'll take a closer look at frass and how it can benefit your land.
Frass is created through the digestive process of Hermetia Illucens, commonly called Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL). The process involves BSFL transforming organic waste into high-quality fertilizer. BSFL Frass contains high levels of proteins, fats and minerals, which have proven to be an excellent organic fertilizer for plants, and also Frass has been shown to increase drought resistance and salt tolerance in various plant species.
The composition of frass offers a wide supply of nutrients, organic matter and soil health benefits to the soil, promoting varied microbial communities and supporting plant behaviour. It also encourages healthy growing conditions for plants, with studies showing that additions to the soil can encourage more pollinators, more extensive plant growth, and a higher yield of flowers and seeds.
