INVENTOR OF PNG'S FIRST FULL SIXTEEN (16) NUTRIENT CONTENT ORGANIC LIQUID FERTILIZER

Mr Christopher Tep is the inventor and owner of PNG's first full sixteen nutrient content organic liquid fertilizer known as Grow Hariap Organic Liquid Fertilizer. For food crops to bear maximum yields, they must have a sufficient supply of sixteen known nutrients. Grow Hariap has been tested in Australia and PNG laboratories to have all the sixteen vital nutrients that crops need to produce maximum yields. The fertilizer is currently being distributed exclusively by Brian Bell throughout PNG. Mr Tep is an agricultural scientist with 30 plus years of experience in the agriculture industry in both private and public sectors. His story is very inspiring. We interviewed him at length about how he invented the fertilizer. We will publish the interview soon on this platform as well as our YouTube channel.

JOHN BROWN (AKA ‘FED’ AND ‘BENFORD’) (1818-1876)

John Brown (also known as “Fed” and “Benford”) of Southampton County, Virginia is best remembered as an escaped enslaved person who wrote an account of his bondage that was published in England in 1854. Brown was born about 1818 on the Betty Moore farm, three miles from Jerusalem (Courtland) on the Nottoway River. Due to the will of his owner, the Moore slaves were split between the daughters once they married. Brown, his mother and one brother, were taken by his new owner, James Davis, to Northampton County, Virginia in 1828. The rising price of cotton in the 1820s prompted an increased need and value of slaves particularly in the Deep South. Accordingly, Fed was sold to Starling Finney, a slave dealer, in 1830 and taken to Georgia. There, he was eventually sold for $350 to a cotton planter. Brown in his autobiography described Thomas Stevens as whipping his slaves every day. Young Brown tried to run away from the Stevens plantation several times. In the last attempt he wa
