I read an article about using wood vinager as a fertilizer and wondered if anyone knew more?

Seems to contain methanol and acetic acid among other things. Production sounds like a low temperature pyrolysis,
Below a couple of articles on production use and dilution. The third is an analysis of one form, you can see that they found about 100 compounds including furfural and various phenols; which are disinfectants, antiseptics and flavouring agents (smoky bacon). Unfortunately some are mutagenic and or carcinogenic.

I use a solar pond aerator and burn a little chipped wood in my greenhouse.
The tube from the aerator bubbles the smoke through a bucket of water, capturing some of the karrikins.
The water is then used on seed trays to enhance germination and growth.
I also burn a little now and again, in the greenhouse, to aid the growth of my solenaceae.
