Sorry if I missed this in previous messages, but I couldn't find it in
the archives.  Is APC available in the US??

Also, I'm wondering what this means: "When APC is used
to make a water-extract, the resultant compost tea combined with the
soil
product applied as a mulch has suppressed and prevented disease
completely."  Does that refer to making aerated compost tea from the APC
alone?  And does it mean first you make and apply the tea and then you
use the APC you made the tea from as a mulch??

Thanks for your thoughts.
