Liquid Seaweed concentrate 1 litre (NZ only)
Has more than 70 minerals, vitamins and enzymes that are not found elsewhere. These nutrients fuel the plant cells’ growth resulting in healthier, stronger and more disease-resistant plants.
Increases uptake of nutrients from the soil, better resistance to frost and other stress conditions, increased resistance to pests, and increased yields.
Since most plants absorb their nutrients through the leaves, applying it with a foliar method benefits the plant even more. As the plant absorbs sunlight, it will also absorb the nutrients in the fertiliser.
Alginates (sponge-like starches found in seaweed) hold water droplets near the plant roots, making moisture available to them without drowning them.
Another major component is the hormones. Their main functions are the balanced control of speed of growth. They have both growth-stimulating as well as growth-delaying functions. They stimulate root-growth and prevent bud-forming or opening at the wrong times.
