What Is It?
Compost tea is a living fertilizer that may be applied to your crops. A healthy tea is a soup of bacteria, fungus, protozoa, and nematodes that help offer balanced nourishment while also protecting the body from sickness. Essential plant nutrients and biostimulants are present, and beneficial bacteria aid in the creation and maintenance of a healthy soil system. Compost tea's flexibility allows us to use it in irrigation as well as foliar applications. A foliar spray of tea will coat the surface of the leaves with pathogen-fighting microorganisms. Compost tea is a key element in a thriving garden that is healthy and mainly disease-free.
