Building Orchard Health
Fruit trees, as with all trees, prefer more fungal-based soils (versus bacterial) – see our article on compost tea (soil conditioner) for more details. Consider how they would grow in a non-cultivated natural woodland environment: leaves, branches, and woody matter fall to the ground, decompose and then these nutrients eventually cycle back to the tree with the help of all the members of the Soil Food Web.
In a cultivated orchard, we ensure that the proper nutrients are available via the soil and foliar applications. This allows a tree to be able to realize its full genetic potential and to express natural defense mechanisms.
Our organic fruit sprays serve as much to build health as they do to prevent problems. In spring, early summer and fall, actively aerated compost tea, fish hydrolysate, seaweed extract, molasses and pure neem oil help supply essential nutrients and fatty acids to feed not only the tree but also the beneficial microbes in the soil and on the foliage. These probiotic sprays serve to help build a healthy immune system and keep microorganisms in balance.
