Compost Tea

Hi Folks,


Recently I started using compost tea as organic fetilizer to my plants. I shall say it works well. The plants have been responding quite good to it. This can be considered as a cheap but effective alternative to panchgavya or jeevamrutha especially in uban areas where cow dung and cow urine etc are not easily available.


Preparation of Compost tea is easy. You may need to buy a small aquarium pump and air stone for continuous aeration . But you should be able to substitute that with manual stirring using a stick (this is what I do at home) at regular intervals.


Here are some videos on it that may be useful:

Very interesting post.
Certain items are difficult to get in urban India.  I have trying to source fish emulsion locally without any luck. Heard they are very good for plants. 
Maybe I should try this with my home made vermicompost.
