Benefits of Compost Tea

Compost tea has many of the same beneficial attributes of standard compost, but it is clearly a different product. Unlike compost, compost tea can be applied directly to plant foliage which provides nutrition and beneficial microorganisms that colonize leaf surfaces. This is believed to be instrumental in disease suppression. Compost tea can also be applied directly to the soil and is a way to boost biological activity between compost applications.

Compost Tea Brewers

Making your own compost tea with compost tea brewers is easier than you may think. Compost tea is easily made by soaking or steeping compost in water. By using compost tea to replace chemical-based fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides, you can garden safer and be more eco-friendly. Compost tea is made up of living organisms that die over time, this means making your own is more beneficial than buying pre-made compost tea since you can apply the tea right after it is made, making sure that no organisms die off before being applied.
