SEA Seaweed promotes healthy growth of plants and crops
HIGHER CHLOROPHYLL PRODUCTION
Betaines in SEA Seaweed help plants produce significantly more chlorophyll, in fact up to 70% more! Greener foliage gives the plant greater photosynthetic potential. This benefits the plant by increasing its biomass, improving yields and crop quality.
STRONGER PLANT DEFENCE SYSTEM
Recent research has found that the betaines in SEA Seaweed also enhance natural plant defence systems. This gives the plant a greater resistance to fungal, viral and insect attack. Your crops are better able to cope with environmental stress factors, reducing costs for you.
INCREASED RESISTANCE TO FROST
SEA Seaweed's natural hormones work to strengthen the walls of every cell, giving the plant up to 4 extra degrees of frost tolerance.
MORE FRUIT SET
Trials have clearly established that SEA Seaweed applied at or near full bloom increased the proportion of blossoms which actually set fruit and carry through till harvest. This effect has been observed in apples, pears, cherries, peaches, citrus, berry fruit and subtropical crops.
LONGER SHELF LIFE OF PRODUCE
It has been proven that fruits and vegetables produced by plants sprayed with SEA Seaweed have a longer shelf life than the produce of untreated plants. In leafy vegetable crops, SEA Seaweed has the effect of delaying the wilting of the leaves, giving growers more time to get their produce to market in top condition.
SEA Seaweed boosts microbial activity in soils and compost
STIMULATION OF SOIL MICRO-ORGANISMS
SEA Seaweed stimulates plant roots to produce more exudate which feeds the soil biome and increases their numbers, diversity and activity. The healthy biome in turn feeds the plant, rewarding it with more nutrients and protecting it from pathogens.
MAKE THE MOST OF OTHER FERTILISERS
More chlorophyll means more protein which is sent to the roots and stimulates the plant to exude more to feed the microbes in the soil. This is how SEA Seaweed increases microbial numbers and activity. The plants make more efficient use of soil applied fertilisers as well as nutrients already in the soil. The plant root system becomes more developed and the micro-organisms make soil-bound nutrients available to plants.
IMPROVE YOUR COMPOST AND MULCH CROPS
SEA Seaweed can be sprayed over compost heaps to boost fertility and reduce pathogens. The benefits of SEA Seaweed are ongoing - spraying on green manure crops will improve your following crops.
Insects are predators, taking the weak and sick. Studies have shown that, by raising the natural sugar levels in plants, Seaweed actually works like a natural insecticide by making plants indigestible for leaf eating insects.
SEA Seaweed contains Alginate, a sticky gel which holds approximately 30% its weight in water, helping the soils fertility and plant growth. Seaweed feeds the soil bacteria, flora and worms with essential elements, keeping them healthy, fertile and productive.
About SEA Seaweed Soluble
SEA Seaweed Soluble comes as dark, almost black, granules similar in texture to instant coffee. It is completely soluble and will pass through the finest sprayer. Our Soluble product is mixed with water at the rate of a level teaspoon to 10 litres for a home garden, or a kilo per hectare for farmers.
Mike (organic avo's, Northern NSW) sent us a couple of before and after photos - slightly different angle, same trees. This is what he said..."First photo is pre, second was this week. You will see they were really really struggling, some, if not all were close to total removal, most had little to none leaf growth, stunted and showing signs of phytophera. Now they are jumping out of the ground, great structure and fantastic leaf cover. Size now appears better from previous years right across the farm on mature trees. It has also boosted the custard apples along, with great fruit set, great leaf colour and good branch and leaf growth. The same spray regime is used on the Avos, custard apples, bananas, vanilla and our veggie garden. We will not change – sometimes one wonders why we go off something that works and gives good results, we will stick with the Seaweed as the proof is in the photos."
How to mix SEA Seaweed Soluble Granules
In this video Liz shows you how to mix SEA Seaweed Soluble Granules to spray on your plants or trees, or drench soil or compost. The method is the same whether you have a home garden or a hundred hectares to spray.
