Alternative to Organic Fertilizer Products?

I see these new products where fertilizer & chemical rates can be reduced but can we not make our own and have same results? Seems a good compost tea with a LITTLE liquid nitrogen would do the same? Seems too all these products including tea would not be as effective over 90 degree temperatures.

My question to this forum is what additional ingredients should be added to be a substitute for the packaged products on the market.

I will start by mentioning Humic acid,Fish hydrolysate,kelp and maybe a 18-3-6 liquid fertilizer, a good compost base (I use earthworm castings that feed on cottonburr compost).
