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.
14 MAIN REASONS YOU SHOULD USE NATURAL ORGANIC SEAWEED FERTILISER
- Balanced natural fertiliser
Contains major plant nutrients and wide range of micronutrients making it ideal for addressing deficiencies
- Conditions soil
Contains mannitol and alginic acid which acidifies soils and help plants to absorb nutrients
- Encourages root growth
Auxins in seaweed stimulate growth of existing roots, particularly in lawns.
- 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.
- Crops store longer
Regular foliar feeding with seaweed increases plant resistance to bacterial and fungal decays which can spoil stored crops.
- Stimulates your microbes
Complex carbohydrates in seaweed stimulate microscopic soil fungi and other soil microbes; this increased activity heightens the availability of soil nutrients.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- Increases your strike rate
Auxins in seaweed help cuttings establish.
- Reduces fruit drop
Cytokinins help reduce the amount of embryonic fruit aborted, and stimulates early flowering.
- Fights nematodes
Helps suppress nematodes (eelworms). It reduces their breeding, weakening them so they find it harder to invade plants.
- Improves frost tolerance
Seaweed helps to strengthen cell walls, which helps reduce frost damage.
