Seaweed (kelp) additives


Seaweed additives can provide micro nutrients, cytokinins, auxins, gibberellins, polysaccharides, amino acids, and proteins. These are all very beneficial to plants.

Seaweed products are derived from the soluble ‘extract’ of seaweed species such as Ascophyllum Nodosum and Laminaria. The extract is widely regarded as providing the following benefits to plants:

1. Acts as a soil conditioner to increase the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils and aid nutrient uptake.

2. Improves water holding capacity of soils.

3. Promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria.
