The importance of compost teas cannot be overlooked. These are suppliers of the most important nutrients and activators you could possibly add to your crops. In addition, the fastest way to supply extremely needed nutrients for a premium crop production. These teas promote terpenes to deploy much much better flavors and aromas. You can apply directly to the roots & soil. In addition, you can choose to foliar spray your plants until flowering begins. Then just root & soil application apply currently.
Explanation of Benefits
Applying compost tea to your plants, you reduce the need for fertilizers, and pesticides. This ultimately driving down the cost to keep plants healthy. Properly applied, compost tea suppresses foliar diseases. In addition, speeds up the breakdown of toxins. Compost tea increases the amount of nutrients available to the plant. This occurs through microorganism processes, resulting in an overall healthier plant.
Tea Use Improvements
You can improve plant growth as a result of protecting plant surfaces. Accomplish this with beneficial organisms which occupy infection sites. Therefore, prevent disease-causing organisms from finding the plant. Compost tea contains all the soluble nutrients extracted from the compost. They also contain all the species of bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes in the compost.
This helps to improve plant growth as a result of improving nutrient retention in the soil. Therefore reduce fertilizer use, and loss of nutrients in the ground & surface water. You can improve plant nutrition by increasing nutrient availability in the root system. A predator-prey interaction increases plant available nutrients in exactly the right place. In addition, the time and amounts that the plant needs. This reduces the negative impacts of chemical-based pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers on beneficial microorganisms in the ecosystem.
Compost Tea & Nutrients
Compost tea will also improve uptake of nutrients. This happens by increasing foliar uptake as beneficial microorganisms increase the time stomata stay open. All the while reducing evaporative loss from the leaf surface.
Results including water loss reduction, improve water-holding in the soil. This reduces water use, and improves tillage by building better soil structure. Only the biology builds soil structure. Essentially all the groups in the food web are required to be successful. You can’t have just bacteria. You must have fungi, protozoa, nematodes and microarthropods as well!
