"Organic solutions to fertilization are in strong demand, and coupled with the growing interest in sustainable, ecologically friendly farming practices, the time is ripe for fresh answers to old challenges," explained Humboldt Earth Technologies CEO Russell Pace. "The Compost Tea Calculator is the first entry in a new class of apps developed for both novice and experienced horticulturalists."
Gardeners who apply compost in the traditional way – as a mulch-like covering – have been missing the benefits of compost tea. Properly brewed compost tea concentrates the most powerful compounds in the biological matter and allows for more direct application to leaves or soil than solid compost does. Likewise, compost tea recipes can be tailored to remedy particular issues or meet the nutrient requirements of specific plant species.
The Compost Tea Calculator is an ideal introduction to the art and craft of brewing compost tea. The user interface is elegant and straightforward: Even someone who has never brewed compost tea can achieve great results with the CTC app.
Each of the CTC app's professionally formulated, built-in recipes contains an ideal ratio of essential nutrients and microbial life, helping boost yields and improve resistance to the most common plant diseases.
Positive reviews of the CTC app on Google Play have been steadily rolling in. "I'm excited to use the compost tea app this coming spring and summer," remarked one early user. "I have already ran a few 5 gallon test tea brews, and I was very pleased with how easy the app was to use and how plants responded to the teas!"
Future updates to the CTC app will include new recipes, conversion tools, how-to videos and more – all part of solidifying HET's position as a leader in this category.
