Sea Kelp Meal builds Plant Stage Development, Stress Resistance, and Yield
Sea Kelp encourages plant growth by delivering 60 + trace minerals and ready-to-acquire nutrients; nitrogen, potassium, phosphate, and magnesium. It also contains natural plant hormones and unlike manure, sea kelp does not need to decompose before providing a benefit to soil and crops.
Sea Kelp improves a plants’ ability to prepare before stress takes place and recover more rapidly from adverse environmental conditions. This enhanced stress resistance and recovery has been demonstrated on a wide range of crops and plants. When trees or vines are treated following harvest, plants have enhanced recovery from the stress of harvest, and are prepared for dormancy by building carbohydrate reserves for a strong next season.
Our Sea Kelp is line-grown in open ocean waters, hand harvested and sun dried.
