Do a few searches for activated compost tea, soil food web, soil micro-biology.

The theory is that properly made compost tea will increase the beneficial soil microbes and aid in increased nutrient uptake and disease resistance.

Many consider it too strange for them, but the more you look into it.......

A lot of farmers are seeing good results. Several turf care companies are adding it to their toolbox.
