Fungal dominated tea and powdery mildew

Post  jimmy cee on 9/1/2018, 10:39 pm

Just read a bit of info today that some may be interested in.
Plants leaves exude a substance that attracts microbes, a fungal dominated compost tea sprayed on plants will help greatly in resisting and suppressing  powdery mildew.
After the tea is attached to the leaves is is difficult for them to be removed, this means rain nor wind can remove them..

Good info, Jimmy!  Over the years I have learned that the healthier the soil, the less the diseases and pests.  Years ago we purchased some Peony roots from a local nursery, and the next fall the leaves were totally covered with Powdery Mildew - to the point that the leaves were dying.  Since it was late in the season, I trimmed the plants back to the ground and burned all of the leaves & stems. Then I applied a coating of Azomite over and around the roots, and watered it in with a compost tea soil drench. After the cold weather set in, I covered them with about 3" of compost and left them for the winter. The next spring beautiful plants emerged from the compost, which resulted in beautiful blooms. They have never had powdery mildew on them since.


BTW, Jimmy, you may have to change your signature from "It's in the Compost", to "It's in the Compost Tea!"   Very Happy
