What can you use as compost
How to make a compost is a profesion in itself. Using, for instance, your kitchen scraps, mixing it with leaves and mawn grass is hard but thankfull work. But not everyone has the chance to make his own compost pile. Organic Earth has a lot to offer when you want to make your own compost tea: Plagron Mega worm, Plagron Bat Guano, Bio Tabs PK Compost Tea, Lurpe Green Sunrise, Lurpe Healthy Harvest,
The main disadvantage to compost tea is that its benefits are reliant upon the quality of the compost used to make the tea. This makes its effectiveness very difficult to predict because no two batches are exactly the same, even if you use compost from the same pile.
On the other hand; if you trust mother nature, you know this is the way to go.
How to use
You can apply compost tea in irrigation and via foliar. A foliar application of tea will cover the surface of the leaves with microbes that protect from pathogens.
