Seaperia - The Superior Seaweed

Seaperia promotes healthy growth of plants and crops

Betaines in Seaperia 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.

Recent research has found that the betaines in Seaperia 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.

Seaperia's natural hormones work to strengthen the walls of every cell, giving the plant up to 4 extra degrees of frost tolerance.

Trials have clearly established that Seaperia 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. 

It has been proven that fruits and vegetables produced by plants sprayed with Seaperia have a longer shelf life than the produce of untreated plants. In leafy vegetable crops, Seaperia has the effect of delaying the wilting of the leaves, giving growers more time to get their produce to market in top condition.

Seaperia boosts microbial activity in soils and compost

Seaperia 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. Seaperia 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.

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 Seaperia 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.

Seaperia can be sprayed over compost heaps to boost fertility and reduce pathogens. The benefits of Seaperia 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, Seaperia actually works like a natural insecticide by making plants indigestible for leaf eating insects.

"it's really dry here but when we had that shower of rain the pasture that I've sprayed with Seaperia definitely came back more quickly than the rest" - Sharon, Qld

"I've planted ginger but I only had enough Seaperia to spray half. I need more! The half that I sprayed is well ahead of the side that missed out" - Scott, Qld

"the grapes look bigger for this time in the season - they look great! Can't wait to see how the citrus crop goes" - Ross, Vic

"the potatoes had so many flowers it looked like snow on the paddock! And the plants are so high! The only thing we did different was 2 sprays of Seaperia" - John, Qld

So easy to use

Seaperia Soluble Seaweed comes as dark, almost black, granules similar in texture to instant coffee. It is completely soluble and will pass through the finest sprayer.
Seaperia is super-concentrated - it is mixed with water at the rate of just a level teaspoon to 10 litres for a home garden, or just a kilo per hectare for farmers. Click here to view our typical analysis - you will be impressed!

A word from another happy farmer...

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 Seaperia as the proof is in the photos."

A Unique Vision - Our SEA Hub Farms

Are you a farmer wanting to save money on freight and meet like-minded farmers in your area?
Get your seaweed directly from one of our SEA Hub Farms.

We have SEA Hub Farms that service the Atherton Tablelands, Ayr and the Burdekin, Mackay and the Pioneer and Lismore/Northern Rivers regions, which means you don’t have high transport costs for your Seaperia. 

Our SEA Hubs hold pallets of Seaperia at their farm, so all you have to do is order and pay, then drop in and pick up your Seaweed.
Our SEA Hub Farmers are friendly and share our passion for Seaweed. And at SEA we believe that the power of farmers learning from each other and working together is a formidable force for good.

Seaperia Meal as a soil improver

"Initially, when in drought and as always trying not to use much water in our raised gardens, general gardens and habitat areas, we sprinkled and mixed into the soil 3 handfuls of Seaperia seaweed meal per square metre.
Since then, with all of our plantings, we put a sprinkle (about a dessertspoon) in the bottom of each hole to help retain moisture down where the roots need it. Our plants are doing very well with just the occasional watering (and until recently very little rain).
Also we are adding the meal to our potting mix for seeds, cuttings and potting up, using about 125g per 10 litre bucket of soil. 
We are also sprinkling 3 handfuls per 1 cubic metre on our compost bins, which get turned twice a week – heaps more earthworms now.
We haven’t done a scientific study but gut feel is that plants are happier and soil is looking and feeling moister and more alive."
