What is compost tea?
Compost tea is your secret ingredient to grow giant vegetables! The key to plant growth is nitrogen. About 78% of all nitrogen exists in the atmosphere. Unfortunately plants cannot absorb atmospheric nitrogen. Nitrogen must convert into other forms so that it can enter the food chain.
Compost tea contains the three primary nutrients plants need: nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. Not only does compost feed the plants that grow in this soil, but it does so using existing materials, many of which are free or by-products of the food system already.
When used as a foliar spray, compost tea can provide many beneficial microorganisms to plant surfaces and help kill pathogenic organisms, and suppress diseases, using foliar spray will also increase strength within the plant stem and help produce more foliage.
