Mario de Haro Marti is making tea. It’s not black tea or green tea, it’s compost tea. A University of Idaho extension educator, he is applying his brew to corn as part of a study researching the effect of different biostimulants on corn silage yield. Over 45 farmers, marketers, industry representatives, graduate students and university scientists learned about de Haro Marti’s work Thursday as part of the University of Idaho Kimberly Research and Extension Center summer field day.
