Compost or Tea

Compost is food for the soil, OM for the soil, physical presence in the structure of the soil and an aid for optimizing the air/water ratio of the soil...

The Tea microbes consume/cycle the raw materials of the soil then die...
That fact of life,,, is basic to all life...

BTW, I'm not against AACT and I understand the value of healthy vibrant soils alive with SOM and its microbiology...

I also understand that microbe populations CHANGE quickly depending on its Habitat,,, so:
What should my concerns be about the habitat I apply the CT into?
Will the aerobic microbes survive long enough to help an anaerobic clay loam that never gets a chance to dry out???
How about soil temps???

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
