EcoTea™ Microbe Functions
In the presence of specific pathogens, some of the microbes in EcoTea™ can produce antibiotics to fight against the pathogens, increasing your plant’s immune response.
EcoTea™ microbes can solubilize phosphorus that is locked up in soil aggregates. These microbes can reduce the amount of phosphorous applied by up to 20%.
The bacteria in EcoTea™ are capable of fixing the nitrogen gas in the atmosphere to an organic form of nitrogen available for plants.
The protozoa in EcoTea™ will “feed” off the functional bacteria releasing valuable nutrients in the plant’s root zone, improving the crops’ overall health and quality.
Certain EcoTea™ bacteria will help your plants find and uptake iron, improving your crop’s overall quality.
Plant Hormone Producing
EcoTea™ can produce a variety of plant growth hormones, IAA, cytokinins, gibberellins, ethylene.
