What is Compost Tea?
Compost Tea is a liquid extract of compost that enhances the microbial life of the soil. High quality compost is infused with water, aerated for a 24 hour period and then sprayed as a foliar spray and soil drench. Compost Tea is used on organic farms, orchards, and vineyards and is now becoming more popular in organic lawn, landscape and tree care.
Compost Tea is a signature component of Earthcare's landscaping. We have been brewing tea for several years and have pioneered the use of ACT (Aerated Compost Tea) in this region. We utilize a special large capacity brewer and test our teas regularly to ensure that our product meets a high standard. We spray compost teas at well above the typical application rates to more effectively coat leaf surfaces and penetrate the soil. The end result? Our compost tea improves soil nutrient cycling, soil porosity, root depth, and long term soil health. These conditions lead to better plant growth and resistance to stress.
