1. It's not used too much on the lawn end where I work, but I did use it on a few lawns with red thread and summer patch. Stopped the spread of the disease. In the fall, it's mixed with a cocktail of other organic ingredients and marketed as a fall liquid aeration.

2. If I could buy it? It's brewed on site.

3. Charge for apps is something you would have to figure out after costs. Charge as a top dressing, soil amendment, etc.

Do you know that the tea will only last, give or take 4 hours without oxygen?

We started making it with a 7 gallon container and use it on all our flower beds at commericial sites. I also used it on my lawn and trees at my house, and I think this is a long term process. I did see worms in the flower beds this year and haven't seen that for awhile. We also are using it on compacted islands in parking lots as experiment.
