Compost Tea

This is our 3rd year using Compost Tea at Cruden Bay .
A bag of specially blended compost is brewed in the tank above and the Tea produced is then sprayed on our Greens .The Compost is brewed to extract and multiply beneficial Fungi and Bacteria . The profile of free draining  links greens are quite sterile and populations of these Fungi and Bacteria can be on the low side .

Regular applications of Tea help to break down locked up nutrients and make them available to the grass roots,increasing plant health ,drought and disease resistance.Many people wont have heard about compost tea,but it has a long history of use in agriculture dating back to Roman times !
