Seaweed Therapy

The use of Seaweed Spray for growing food is a therapy that assists the natural process. By improving the health of all living things Seaweed helps the soil regain its fertility and allows the soil to heal itself naturally. We all know that, given time, Nature will itself heal our battered soils and microbial life. Working with nature in a regenerative way of growing we can see our soil gradually change and come back to life. We can help that process along gently and naturally with Seaperia Sea...

Urea and Our World

The Urea Nitrogen Story is much bigger than you may think. It is actually an extension of World War Two and the stockpiles of nitrogen for making the millions of explosive munitions used in that dreadful conflict. When peace returned there was the problem of what to do with all this now unwanted material... an Austrian scientist had the answer and very quickly big business saw an opportunity not to be missed... make it into fertilizer and make heaps of money. It did not matter that this scienti...

The Science of Seaweed

Recently there was a comment on our online chat... "this is not evidence based" That was it.  My first thought was "you have got to be kidding! Seaweed is one of the most researched organisms on our planet. There have been thousands of studies over many decades specifically testing its effect on animals and plants, not to mention all of those who are researching seaweed as an alternative bio-fuel and plastic, farming for carbon sequestration... it just goes on and on!" But hang on.What is t...

Organic minerals

Elements are the building blocks of the universe, and of life on Earth.  All life on Earth is based on the element carbon. Interestingly there is speculation that life on other planets could be based on other elements such as silicon. Minerals occur in 2 basic forms... "hard" minerals that are contained in rocks, and "soft" or organic  minerals that are part of living things. When you need extra minerals for your plants or your animals this is the choice you have. Remember though that ...

Seaperia vs good old NPK

Firstly I want to say... this isn't rocket science, it is good old common sense and it works. I am simply sharing our knowledge and adding a very simple tool to your line up of effective, non-toxic products.  Many farmers are already using Seaweed - most brands come in plastic drums with lots of water and other additives, and are only around 20% Seaweed.Seaperia is different because it is simply dry, pure Ascophyllum Seaweed.  Firstly can I ask, do you really want to pay for water, pla...

It works 5 times faster!

Seaperia Soluble Seaweed Spray works five times faster when sprayed onto the leaf and not the soil... this is a fact.  Foliar sprays are preferred by many growers these days because they can see the response more quickly. This is because the seaweed solution passes directly into the plant and doesn't have to go the long way round... into the soil, then up through the root system and only then into the plant to do its work. Because Seaweed uses photosynthesis just like land plants, Seaperia ...

Organic hay - a personal experience

We always love hearing from you, no matter where you are or what you do, whether you use our Seaperia or not.I particularly loved this. It's a couple of comments that were actually on a facebook post. This lady wasn't a customer at the time but I really loved her in-depth account of her experience. This is what she wrote... "Hi, I have no connection to this firm. I write this because I am keen to see more people employ a non chemical attitude to farming. I have come to learn that organic is so m...

From little things big things grow....

This blog is about the future… and I hope so much that in a few years time I’ll look back at these words and say “we’ve come a long way!”.There is no doubt that our world is changing – it always has and it always will. That is how nature works, that is how our planet and all its living ecosystems have evolved and that is the way it should be.But now in our human world change is happening so fast that our planet can’t keep up. We just have to look at Australia’s weather ...

Be Brave

You are doing your day-to-day jobs, getting through each day's work, but in your mind you have a grand vision. You want a farm that is truly working to its full potential, a farm that you are proud of and that provides a happy and healthy lifestyle for yourself and your family.  Well, you could just keep doing what you'r...

Fruit trees + Seaperia = sweet success!

Over the years fruit in general has become virtually tasteless in comparison with what can be remembered in years gone by... not so long ago I was in the north of England at the site of an old farm in what was the apple orchard. There were just a few hardy, old, gnarled trees left and I wandered around the leafless autumn branches, above my reach just one large apple survived. I knocked it down, it was an old-fashioned Bramley and as I sank my teeth in its wonderful flavoursome juice ran down my...

Change is scarey (but it doesn't have to be)

The world is changing. That’s nothing new. What’s new is the rate of change now that information is so easily and quickly accessible, and so easy to share. How we grow food is changing, and so is what we want to buy. As consumers we are so much fussier than we used to be, and that’s because we have information at our fingertips about what we should be eating for better health, how to find the best produce and cook it so that it tastes amazing, and the impact our choices are having on other...

Seaweed, Dog Teeth and Fresh Breath!

Lately we’ve had more and more enquiries from pet owners asking if our Ascophyllum nodosum Seaweed is good for their dog’s dental health. Well yes it is! Just take a look at this comment Rachelle left on our online store recently... "2nd time round purchasing for my greyhound. I hadn't paid heaps of attention to how well it worked till I stopped using it for a while and changed his kibble. A quick peek at his teeth revealed brown plaque build up half way down his canine. Back onto ...

Sheep, Wool and Seaweed

Supplementing with Seaperia will boost the overall health and fertility of your flock... your lambs will grow stronger as their mothers will have more, richer milk, with less mastitis and health problems. Rams will be more fertile and ewes will produce more lambs over their lifetime. Over many years we have proved that Seaweed improves coat or hair in all animals... better hair, hooves, nails and even teeth is simply a product of better nutrition and a healthy gut. In sheep this should produce ...

Kelp vs Ascophyllum nodosum

In Australia there is a tendency to call any Seaweed “kelp”. This is reinforced by agricultural companies, meant to be experts in their field, who talk about kelp as if it is the only Seaweed in the world. At Seaweed Enterprises Australia we don’t sell Kelp.We sell Ascophyllum nodosum, and I’m going to explain to you the difference. Across the world there are around 10,000 species of Seaweed.These are broken into 3 groups – brown, red and green. The largest group by far is Red, with ab...

Seaweed and frost protection

Living in the Tropics it can be a bit of a challenge to get a photo of frost, but last year I did! I live at 1000 metres above sea level so frosts do happen in mid-winter. Frost is a challenge for all of us who are growing plants or feeding animals. In just a few hours it can destroy a year's work and hit hard in the hip pocket. Seaperia is proven to give plants an extra 2 to 4 degrees of frost tolerance! I know, this is an incredible fact and this winter it could save your crops, gardens and pa...

Essential Elements

The periodic table is fascinating. To think that everything in our lives... E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G-! ... is made from combinations of just 118 different atoms – the elements. Five of them are so rare they have only been discovered in the last 20 years. No doubt there are many more yet to be found. We refer to them broadly as Trace Elements – they are needed only in trace amounts, and those trace amounts in the correct balance are essential to life and health. Even though trace elements are esse...

Carbon and Carbs

Understanding soil carbon as a component in the success of your farm is very important for every farmer worldwide... it is the Primary Unifying Factor in soil health, for the main component in soil carbon is organic matter - this is what gives soil its dark brown colour and rich earthy smell. Our grandfathers knew this - they would pick up a handful of their soil, squeeze it between their fingers, break it with their thumb, then smell it to find out if everything was OK... they knew instinctivel...

Locusts - A Story of Biblical Proportions

Back in 1974 the West family made an epic journey, migrating from South Australia to Far North Queensland. There were 12 of us – 3 generations, 3 families, 3 trucks and caravans.  Brother Ashley and family led the way in his Landrover, then Mum & Dad in a large International truck, and following Edna and I and kids in our International ex-Police paddywagon, all pulling large caravans and all packed to the hilt.  From Adelaide our convoy made slow but steady progress rumbling along th...

Legumes and natural Nitrogen

Legumes are a large family of plants that includes beans and peas as well as feed crops like alfalfa and clover. Grown all over the world as food for animals and humans (who doesn't love Baked Beans!), they play an important role because of their unique nitrogen-fixing ability. It is ironic that farmers spend so much money on Nitrogen fertilisers and yet we are surrounded by Nitrogen in the air we breathe. In fact our atmosphere is 78% Nitrogen. And it's the best type - it's free! Growing legume...

Potato Rot

The humble potato doesn't seem to have the resilience and lasting qualities it once had - in fact if not eaten quickly the common supermarket potato soon breaks down into a slimy, smelly mess.Not so many years ago potatoes were stored - gradually losing moisture they would slowly shrivel and grow shoots in the sack. After months of storage they would be soft but still full of nutrition - the shoots were rubbed off and those potatoes were scrubbed or peeled for dinner. Apples as well would last f...

Love your weeds!

Weeds are just like everything else in nature, they are there for a purpose. For example, weeds with large taproots bring up nutrients from deeper layers and can grow through and loosen compacted soil. We've all seen bare areas of poor soil that will hardly grow grass, and yet weeds such as fleabane are flourishing. These weeds are nature's front line, they are first to fight in the battle to get that soil back to health. These weeds should be slashed and mulched rather than sprayed and killed. ...

The Drought

There is no doubt that in the past couple of weeks everyone in Australia has finally become aware of the severity of the drought we are facing, and how it is impacting farmers and communities in regional Australia. I have to tell you about a phone call to our dear friend Margaret. Margie and her husband are both in their 70's and manage a cattle station near Richmond. I'm sure you can imagine them - sun-hardened "salt of the earth" wonderful people. Margie is a very special person to us because ...

10 reasons we say "Seaperia is The Superior Seaweed"

1. Seaperia is pure Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed. Ascophyllum nodosum is the most scientifically studied seaweed on the planet and is proven to give greatest results. Many other products contain inferior, cheaper varieties of seaweed. 2. Seaperia comes as granules and you simply add the water. You can mix your solution to suit your situation - stronger or weaker - and add whatever you want to the mix.3. Seaperia is light because it has no water. Even large agricultural quantities are easy for you...

Sugar isn't just for us sweet-tooths!

When it comes to sugar and farming I know the first thing we all think of is sugar cane. There are many of you reading this who are cane farmers, but sugar is important to every farmer.Plants use chlorophyll to trap the sun's energy and then use it to produce sugar via photosynthesis. This sugar energy is either used for growth, exuded through the roots to feed the microbiome or stored within the plant.Cattle and other animals will always favour pasture that is higher in sugars. We human animals...
