  • add beneficial microorganisms and growth hormones to the soil that will protect plants against diseases.
  • will help to repel many harmful fungie and insects
  • and will improve the water holding capacity of soil. 

Worm tea and compost tea can be brewed in buckets that are heavily aerated by an air pipe connected to an air pump.

When worm tea or compost tea are used as a foliage spray, the leaves of the treated plants should be sprayed on both the upper- and the bottem sides.

Once the brewing process has been completed the beneficial properties of the worm tea and compost tea will be richly enhanced and should be used as soon as possible to achieve the best results.To prepare compost tea and worm tea to be used as a foliage spray they should be filtrered through a finely
