FAQs—Frequently Asked Questions

What are the application recommendations for compost tea?
A We recommend the following application guidelines:

  • Compost tea should be applied throughout the growing season every 14 to 30 days. This rotation may be increased to every week during times of plant stress (known disease, environmental stress, etc).
  • Allow 7 days after your last application before harvest.
  • The microbes in compost tea are sensitive to UV light and should therefore be applied before 10 AM or after 4 PM.
  • During precipitation, applications to the soil should be made during light rains only. Foliar applications should be avoided during any type of precipitation.
