The increasing use of organic compost tea in the commercial turf industry is encouraging. Turf professionals are seeking sustainable organic alternatives to traditional chemical regimens as their costs continue to rise, performance diminishes and environmental conditions evolve.
The components of aerated compost tea include beneficial microorganisms, vital organic compounds and essential micro-nutrients producing and sustaining a diverse microbial population in soil. Healthy microbial ecosystems improve soil structure and porosity creating a better plant root environment, increases moisture infiltration-permeability, reducing bulk density of heavy soils improving moisture infiltration rates and reducing erosion and runoff. Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils, reducing water loss and nutrient leaching, improving moisture retention. Improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils and supplies organic matter in growing media, encourages vigorous root growth, allowing plants to more effectively utilize nutrients while reducing nutrient loss by leaching, enables soils to retain nutrients longer and buffers soil pH.
