LUCE ??? Liquid Compost Extraction Unit
Australian Composting Technologies are pleased to introduce our Liquid Compost Extraction Unit – LUCIE – the first Australian designed and manufactured extraction system. The LUCIE systems has been designed to aid farmers and growers to return the beneficial microbes from compost to the soil, which reduces the need for watering, fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides.
Liquid compost extraction is different to compost tea brewing; it allows minerals, humus, and microbes to be extracted from compost in a fast and efficient process. Rather than having to brew for 24 hours, the Liquid Compost Extraction Unit allows liquid compost to be extracted continuously, with rates of up to three batches per hour. In addition, the liquid can be safely stored and used over a two week period, rather than having to be used within 24hrs. The microbial diversity that exists in the compost is preserved, but remains inactive until feeding prior to application.
Microbial diversity is essential for crop production with each species performing a specific function related to the growth and development of crops.
The Liquid Compost Extraction Unit is an essential piece of equipment for anyone who wants to improve their soil. Building soil health using basic biological management increases soil organic matter, water and carbon storage capabilities, soil stability and growing outcomes.
The Liquid Compost Extraction technology developed by ACT, allows farmers, viticulturists, horticulturalists, agriculturalists, and groundskeepers to naturally improve their soil as a growing medium. With better understanding of biological farming and rising environmental, economic and health costs of fertilisers, insecticides and fungicides, ACT???s compost brewing system can help you better future proof your crops, pasture, sports grounds, parks and gardens.
