compost tea
 n.— «The compost teas are part of an approach known as biodynamics, a type of farming that bans use of artificial pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, and promotes crop and wildlife diversity to curb pests.…The theory is that if a plant is resistant to problems such as drought or insects “there’s something in that plant that causes that resistance. So you just take that, you make a tea out of it and spray it on whatever you want that you want to have that resistance.”» —“A Spritz of Sunscreen” by Michelle Locke Modesto Bee (California) Sept. 9, 2006.
