Uses: Plant Energy, Microbial Food, Quick Plant Stimulation, Anti Pest Insect. We love Molasses and put it in almost everything we make. Molasses is sugar, sugar is carbon and carbon is the building block of all life. We also have learned that Molasses will provide a quick stimulation to plants when applied during their growing season. It appears to work like this; plants use the sun for their photosynthesis process which makes their plant food (sugar). Molasses is a way to directly apply sugar to the plants which they absorb through their leaves and roots. And as the brix (sugar) level is increased you see less pest insect problems. This is particularly effective for fighting sucking pest insects.
