So what is ArborBrew? ArborBrew is a compost tea; a liquid made by both cold-brewing and aerating compost in water. The purpose is to extract beneficial organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, just to name a few. During the brewing process, the organisms are fed yucca, fish proteins, kelp, humates, worm castings and more to allow for those beneficial organisms to rapidly increase their numbers and productivity. The brewing must be in a constant state of aerating and has to brew for at least 24 hours.Â Once the tea is ready then it can be applied in several different fashions.Â Soil drenching is one of the most common ways of application, though injection and foliar sprayers are used as well.
Compost teas apply beneficial organisms to plant surfaces so disease-causing organisms cannot find infection sites or food resources. These beneficial organisms provide nutrients as well. As a soil drench, compost tea develops a biological barrier around roots to prevent root disease-causing organisms from being able to find the roots. The tea also provides nutrients for the roots to improve plant growth and improves nutrient and moisture retention. K.C. Arborist Tree Care utilizes ArborBrew compost tea to maintain healthy soils in existing landscapes as well as repair damaged soils following construction damage.
