Applying Your Compost Tea
After brewing the compost for 12 - 18 hours with the 5-gallon brewer or 24 hours for the larger brewers or extended life brewer, the tea may be used as a foliar spray with a backpack sprayer on your plants or lawn. The backpack sprayer has a more useable nozzle that will not clog with the application. You may also apply with a watering can directly to the roots.
Application should be done in the morning or under cool conditions. It may be done in the rain when applied to the soil/lawn. When applied to leaves, it should be done during dry conditions. Because the microbes are active, they will attach themselves in 20 minutes.
The compost tea is most effective when used within 4 hours after the brewing process is completed. When the machine is turned off, the microbe population starts decreasing and you will want to use the tea when it has the highest microbe count. Four hours is the maximum time delay before application.
Frequency of Application
The frequency of application is dependent upon your region, the particular plant and its susceptibility for disease, weather conditions and other factors may apply. Call us (1-866-558-0990, 425-558-0990) or email Leon Hussey at email@example.com if you have specific questions. You cannot over apply compost tea.
There is a patent pending on the KIS® Tea Brewer.
