Black Sea Kelp (1-1-17)
Sea Kelp contains naturally occurring plant growth regulators, namely cytokinins, gibberellins, and indoles. In addition, Seaweed also contains achelating compound called mannitol, which naturally chelates micronutrients into forms that are readily available for plant use.
Benefits to Plants and Crops:
> Promotes seed germination
> Excellent food source for beneficial fungi in the soil
> Increases root growth and crop yields
> Increases nutrient uptake and improves plant stress resistance
> Improves plant tolerance to temperature extremes
> Contains naturally occurring antibiotics
> No worry about burning plant roots - compatible with all plant nutrition programs
PLEASE NOTE: Sea kelp is not curative but used as a preventative, it is most effective when applied before the plant or crop experiences any particular stress. Repeated, low dose applications show the optimum results as opposed to fewer, high applications. Treatments during and after any stress will help the plant recover from stresses such as drought and cold temperatures
Sea kelp can be applied to the roots or foliage of the plant. When applied as a foliar spray, sea kelp helps the plant uptake certain elemental nutrients through the leaves. When applied to the roots, sea kelp increases the number of plant beneficial microorganisms found in the rhizosphere (the soil region subject to the influence of plant roots and their associated microorganisms). To maximize these effects, sea kelp should be applied the roots early in the plant's life cycle and later applied as a foliar spray.
