Compost Tea Agricultural
DCT Compost Tea is a aerated aerobic water-extracted soil inoculums.
It is derived from specialty compost and contains an enormous diversity of soil micro-organisms typically found in a healthy soil.
These beneficial organisms are fed and their populations increase during a ‘brewing’ process.
Chemical-based pesticides, herbicides and some synthetic fertilizers can kill a range of the beneficial micro-organisms that encourage plant growth, the aim of DCT Compost Tea is to restore your soil’s health by adding back to the land those beneficial soil organisms responsible for nutrient cycling, building soil structure, and pest and disease control, this all helps to grow your desired pasture or crop.
A fully diverse and balanced soil foodweb is needed to convert minerals into plant available nutrients (mineralisation) and retain these nutrients in the soil thus minimising leaching.
