    Has anyone run tea through an irrigation fert injector? What about ICT Bill, have your products been used thru 1 of these systems? This system is run off a well, so no chlorine issues. It isn't installed yet, just wondering if it has a usefull role in organics or not. Thanks for any responses.

    Fertigation is a wonderful thing

    Absolutely, these things will get down to 4000 to 1 ratios for very concentrated stuff, ours is more 250 or 300 to 1. The comment I hear back most is, "when I start to smell that nice earthy smell I know the fertigation system is working"

    What if you could fertigate while you cut grass?? or something like that

    fertigate on, most tea will survive. and it does not mind some water.

    I do the poor mans fertigation through my dial and spray miracle grow thingy, I fill it with compost tea hook one end to the hose bib and the other to the hose and either water or hook it to the drip hoses I have buried under my shrub/flower beds

    Don't need it now as we have already gotten over 7 inches of rain this month, I am about to start building an arc
