    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

    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
