Advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants

Published Dec 31, 2019



Seaweed fertilizer is an organic fertilizer produced by accurate processing of marine plant seaweed as the primary raw material. The main component is the natural organic active material extracted from kelp. 


Below are the advantages of seaweed fertilizer for plants:

1 Nutrient-rich

The active seaweed fertilizer contains a large amount of non-nitrogen-containing organic matter, including 40 kinds of minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and iodine, and abundant vitamins, which are unmatched by terrestrial plants, especially seaweed polysaccharides unique to seaweeds. Alginic acid, highly unsaturated fatty acids and a variety of natural plant growth regulators can stimulate the production of non-specific active factors in plants and regulate the balance of endogenous elements.

2 Easily absorbed by plants

The active ingredients in seaweed fertilizers are particularly active after they have been specially treated, and they enter the plants within 2 to 3 hours after application, and they have a speedy absorption and conduction velocity. Alginic acid in seaweed fertilizer can reduce the surface tension of water, forming a layer of film on the surface of the plant, increasing the contact area, water-soluble substances are relatively easy to penetrate the surface cells of stems and leaves so that plants can effectively absorb the nutrients in the seaweed extract.

3 Improve the soil

Seaweed fertilizer is a natural biological system that works in harmony with the plant-soil ecosystem. It can directly increase soil organic matter through soil or plants and activate various microorganisms in the soil. These microorganisms can act as catalysts in the circulation of plant-microbial metabolites, increasing the biological effectiveness of the soil.

4 Fertilizer effect special long

Seaweed fertilizer can directly increase soil organic matter through the soil or plants, and activate various beneficial microorganisms in the soil. These microorganisms can act as catalysts in the circulation of plant-microbial metabolites and increase the biological efficiency of the soil. Metabolites of plants and soil microorganisms can provide more nutrients to plants. At the same time, the chelation system formed by seaweed polysaccharides and humic acid can release nutrients slowly and extend fertilizer efficiency.

5 Safe and non-toxic

The seaweed fertilizer raw materials are derived from natural seaweeds, have good affinity with terrestrial plants, are non-toxic and harmless to humans and livestock, and have no pollution to the environment. They are high-quality fertilizers for the production of harmless vegetables.
