Compost tea is a natural and sustainable way to improve soil microbiology. It is an aqueous extract full of micro-organisms, in which both bacteria and fungi can be dominant. Compost tea can be used to support the microbiological life of plants and trees, both on the leaves and around the roots.

Traditionally, compost tea is made by placing compost in a vessel with water and aerating it. This process can take 24 to 48 hours.


Compost tea is applicable for any horticultural company after a soil nutrient web survey (zero situation). The compost tea Xtractor is the result of years of cooperation between Compara, Oxydent and Global Horticare. Since the introduction of the first compost tea machine in 1999, there has been much development of compost tea machines due to advancing practical and scientific understanding.

Using compost tea can lead to healthier plants and trees and higher yields. Moreover, it can contribute to a sustainable and healthy horticulture sector by reducing the use of fertilisers and pesticides.
