Olive Trees Survive Disease, Increase in Oil Produced

A Bakersfield olive orchard struggled with soil borne disease. The young plants were infected from the nursery and the disease spread thru the orchard. In the first year, Bacillium disease affected the young plants and he lost 15-20%. After using Vermisterra Worm castings on all 40 acres, only one died and the rest survived. He found that the harvest was the same, but the trees that received VermisTerra tea produced more oil per pound of olives!
