Sardina Pilchardus Hydrolysate as Fertilizer

Sardina Pilchardus Hydrolysate as Fertilizer


This ingredient is contained in LoraQuil, a popular Neuroscience vitamin product.

When sardines or pilchards are processed for canning, their non-usable parts are mixed into water and ground up to form a new substance called Sardina pilchardus hydrolysate. This is formed from the procedure known as hydrolysis, which breaks down complex molecules into simpler ones through chemical reaction with water.


This fish hydrolysate is an effective organic fertilizer and is used in many agricultural farms and even golf courses. The secret with this fertilizer is its rich content of fat, protein, nitrogen and different minerals. In a standard gallon, the total protein content of sardine hydrolysate can be up to 9% while nitrogen content can be up to 2%. Of course, the protein is broken down into amino acids courtesy of the hydrolysis. Some of the most abundant minerals present in the fish hydrolysate fertilizer are sodium, calcium, iron, calcium and zinc. The natural fish oil and enzymes are usually still present in the product.

A small amount of preservative such as phosphoric acid is mixed with the hydrolysate to keep the microbial activities minimal and avoid over-production of gases that could cause the container to explode.


When used as fertilizer, the smell may be a minor problem with sardine hydrolysate but when you mix it with an effective microorganisms product for a few hours, the smell should be mostly neutralized and you will be able to use it with no problem.


Fish fertilizers are usually sprayed on the plants or pre-mixed with the soil before using it for planting. It can also be put on the topsoil after planting. For more effective results, sardine hydrolysate fertilizer is mixed with other sea-based fertilizer products.


These kinds of organic fertilizers are a better alternative over the artificial fertilizers since they are more effective and are more environment-friendly.
