Increase your soil health with our EcoTea™ 5 Gallon Single Application Pack. It's easy to use with our three part system. 1. Add Part A into your aerating dechlorinated water. 2. Add B to your filter and let hang in the aerating, mixing water. 3. After 24 hrs, just before applying (aeration should be turned off) add part C and mix all ingredients well together in your pail.
You can make EcoTea™ two ways...
1. Three Part Aeration Brew
2. Three Part Mix n' Go
Simply add Part A into your aerating dechlorinated water. (5 Gallons) Please note - To dechlorinate city or municipal water, agitate water for 1 hr prior to adding ingredients. To dechlorimanate allow 24hrs of aeration prior to adding ingredients. (Chloramine has a longer half life than chlorine by itself).
Place 300 ml of the Inoculum into our custom filter bag and simply hang from the plumbing of our EcoTea™ 5 Gallon Brewer's pail. Submerse into the aerating water and continue to aerate for 24hrs.
Turn aeration off and now that you have been aerating for 24 hrs, you are ready to add the Catalyst. Add 200 ml of Catalyst into the 5 Gallon pail and mix with a stir stick to make sure it's all mixed well together. Squeeze out filter to get all the "extra good stuff" out of the Inoculum. Each EcoTea™ Application Pack covers up to an acre. EcoTea™ can be applied concentrated or diluted 1 part EcoTea™ to 3 parts dechlorinated water (1:3 ratio) to cover a larger area. Apply directly to plant roots. Use a packback or pull sprayer and apply for foliar applications.
To dechlorinate city or municipal water, agitate water for 1 hr prior to adding ingredients. To dechloraminate allow 24hrs of aeration prior to adding ingredients. (Chloramine has a longer half life than chlorine by itself).
If you will be storing the Application Packs and ingredients, please store in a cool dry environment. Application Packages should be used within a year. If your Package's seals have been open, then your EcoTea™ needs to be used within three months.
EcoTea™ is filtered to 400 micron and will clog a conventional sprayer system if not adopted for compatibility. There are a few things that you must keep in mind when using EcoTea™ in a sprayer or irrigation system. Never use anything less then an White (0.08) spray tip, always remove the screens from your system and ensure that you have good circulation in the reservoir tank. EcoTea™ contains microbial food that is micronized, but not soluble, so it can settle out of solution.
EcoTea™ can be used as many times as you like on Trees. We recommend a minimum of three applications a season (more for high value trees). Use in the spring as a root drench (500 ml - 4L per tree depending on size), summer as a foliar spray (cover 70% of leaf surface and repeat as required), and fall root drench for hardening off.
Use EcoTea™ when transplanting seedlings from the greenhouse. This will completely reduce transplant shock and create a healthy growing plant more quickly. EcoTea™ is a great part of an integrated garden program and will help to increase the efficiency of fertilizer (less runoff) for healthier and more productive plants.
Bacillus, Pseudomonas, Enterobacter, Rhizobium, Azospirillum, Burkholderia and Streptomyces.
Amoeba and Flagellate.
Penicillium, Aspergillus and Trichoderma.
In the presence of a pathogen, some of our microbes can produce antibiotics to fight against it.
Some EcoTea™ bacteria help plants find and take up iron, which improves plant quality.
Some EcoTea™ microbes can solubilize phosphorus that is locked up in soil aggregates. This can reduce the amount of Phosphorus applied, by up to 20%.
Our Protozoa "feed" off of the functional bacteria releasing valuable nutrients in the root zone of the plant.
Bacteria in EcoTea™ are capable of fixing Nitrogen gas (from the atmosphere) to an organic form of Nitrogen available for plants.
Our bacteria can produce a variety of plant growth hormones. (IAA, cytokinins, gibberellins, ethylene)
