Lack of awareness regarding the health benefits of wood vinegar is anticipated to hamper the development of the market in the near future, particularly in emerging nations.

Among wood vinegar applications, agriculture sector accounts for the largest share in the global wood vinegar market. Wood vinegar is a light brownish liquid produced by natural carbonization. Mostly it is used in agriculture as a fertilizer, and pesticide with a wide range of benefits such as strengthens roots and leaves, the quantity of microbes, stimulates plant and vegetable growth, improved absorption within the roots, repels pests and insects, prevents plant infection from fungal, bacterial diseases and viruses. Wood vinegar reduces the value of water in the cluster by 1/3. Due to its small mass, water is activated and easily absorbed by plants and animals. There are one or more mineral elements in each of these masses. These elements are easily absorbed by plants and the use of agrochemicals is greatly reduced. However, alkaline chemicals should not be combined.

Consumption of Wood Vinegar

  • The Organic Agriculture – Wood vinegar is extremely suitable for use in organic farming as it is a natural organic compound. In agriculture, a large number of toxic chemicals have been replaced by wood vinegar, a natural product used to promote growth and yield for crops such as rice, oriza sativa, sweet potato, Ipomoea batatatas, sugar cane, saccharum officinarum, melon, Cucumismelo. It has also been used to improve fruit quality, fight diseases and pests, speed up germination of plate seeds and serve as herbicides.
  • Alternative Medicine - Wood vinegar promote balance and increased body healing. A variety of sources such as chemical pesticides and food fertilizers, contaminated air as a byproduct from metabolism could accumulate toxin in the body. As weakness, pain and distress, illness, and disease are the result of continued accumulation of toxin. For instance, Gout, arthritis, rheumatism and back pain are common illnesses caused by body toxins. Regular removal of toxins can therefore lead to good health.
