Compost Tea Ingredients

Starter and Activator

Compost tea starter

The Starter contains the microbial inoculant and is a propriety blend of various different kinds of composts that we manufacture ourselves. Ecosoil takes great care and attention when producing compost for Compost Tea purposes. Various compost recipes and microbial inoculants are used, some of which are personally collected in nature.

The various heaps are blended and sieved and the end product is called “Compost Tea Starter.”

The Activator is a combination of 8 different ingredients to multiply the organisms in the Compost Tea over a 48 hour period. The selection and amount of food additives were determined after stringent scientific testing to ascertain their effect on the multiplication on all microbial groups found in the Compost Tea (bacteria, fungi, protozoa and beneficial nematodes) without decreasing oxygen levels below 6 parts per million.

Most of Ecosoil’s products are certified according to European, American and Japanese organic standards.
