I am seriously interested in using Compost Tea for disease suppression and would welcome some discussion of the various additives folks are using.
Can you add for example, Actinovate and Mycorrihizae to the brew? Would it increase the amounts in the brew? These are both fungal based so in theory should grow during the brewing period.
Regards to all, beeman

I do wonder if mycorrihizae would be able to grow in a liquid since they're a soil dwelling fungus. I've never given it any thought before. It will be interesting to see the discussion on it.

Well....no discussion.. pity!!
I did finally get an answer from both companies, (email from them is more snail mail) it seems it's not a good idea to add before the brew, but after, before spraying.
As Mycorrihizae is a root fungus there isn't much point in adding it to a foliar spray.
