Eco-Tea™ is a 3-part system:
Inoculum – earthworm castings and plant-based compost “brewed” on-site into a super-concentrated liquid (much more concentrated than soil or foliar products)
Microbial foods – humic, fulvic, and long-chain amino acids, kelp extract, simple and complex carbohydrates, and enzymes designed to feed the array of beneficial bacteria, fungi, and protozoa (this food is customized to different end uses–e.g. foliar vs soil vs seed).
Catalyst – used just before application to activate the biodiverse populations of plant beneficial microbes in the tea.
Eco-Tea™ Liquid Seed Treatment is shipped to the producer in 3 parts: 1) concentrated liquid inoculum 2) microbial food, and 3) catalyst. The producer tank mixes the microbial foods and catalyst prior to application to “activate” the microorganisms.
Eco-Tea™ concentrated inoculum has a shelf life of 60 days (before the addition of the microbial foods and catalyst) given it is stored out of direct sunlight.
Eco-Tea™ Liquid Seed Treatment must be used within 3 days of mixing.
Treated seed must be planted within 3 days of treatment (the sooner the better).
