Seaweed fertiliser benefits

3 September 2021

Natural & organic as in other words just food, no additives of any kind.
You're sure to feel healthy after every bite. Natural seaweed has many health benefits, there’s a lot of research being done about the positive impact on body and mind after ingesting.

A seaweed fertiliser is made by mixing seaweed with a fertiliser such as pigeon pea or olive. Its commercial use dates back to antiquity.

With over 75 billion metric tonnes of seaweed consumed globally each year, seaweed is a valuable organic fertiliser.

Seaweed is becoming increasingly popular as an organic fertiliser, and is being used around the world in farming and gardening.

The growing seaweed farming industry is very widespread in Asia and Australasia.

Below please with our list of top reasons why you should use Seaweed fertiliser on your farm or garden.


  1. Balanced natural fertiliser
    Contains major plant nutrients and wide range of micronutrients making it ideal for addressing deficiencies
  2. Conditions soil
    Contains mannitol and alginic acid which acidifies soils and help plants to absorb nutrients

  3. Encourages root growth
    Auxins in seaweed stimulate growth of existing roots, particularly in lawns.

  4. Earlier, better, bigger crops
    Betaines, which are plant hormones, improve chlorophyll production, resistance to changeable weather including frost. Regular foliar feeding helps growth, earlier flowering, heavier cropping and increased yields.

  5. Crops store longer
    Regular foliar feeding with seaweed increases plant resistance to bacterial and fungal decays which can spoil stored crops.

  6. Stimulates your microbes
    Complex carbohydrates in seaweed stimulate microscopic soil fungi and other soil microbes; this increased activity heightens the availability of soil nutrients.

  7. Improves nutritional value of crops
    Our soils are generally deficient in selenium and iodine and half our diets are iodine deficient, regular applications of seaweed gets these minerals into our soils and our crops.
  8. Produces sweeter fruit
    Cytokinins are natural plant growth hormones found in seaweed, they increase sugar levels in plants, resulting in robust growth and sweeter fruit.

  9. Helps seeds to sprout
    Seaweeds retain their micronutrients, natural amino acids and plant growth hormones.These work together to assist diseases like damping off and assist seed germination

  10. Reduces shock
    These same hormones lessen the impact of transplant shock, aiding recovery. Dip the plants in solution before replanting or water plants in well afterwards.

  11. Increases your strike rate
    Auxins in seaweed help cuttings establish.

  12. Reduces fruit drop
    Cytokinins help reduce the amount of embryonic fruit aborted, and stimulates early flowering.

  13. Fights nematodes
    Helps suppress nematodes (eelworms). It reduces their breeding, weakening them so they find it harder to invade plants.

  14. Improves frost tolerance
    Seaweed helps to strengthen cell walls, which helps reduce frost damage.
