Seaweed fertilizer

By Kirk Bachelder

Would you like to increase your yield by 25%? Well, we know how! Fertilizers are used to improve the yield from crops. It can be applied either from the root or through the leaves. Seaweed fertilizers have been known to improve the quality and produce of your plants. Did you know by using such fertilizers, you get rich fruits and vegetables high in nutrients. How? It starts at the foundation- the root. By expanding the root system and with improved seed germination, plants get healthier and stronger. Thus they are able to combat disease and pests such as red spider mite and aphids.

Common liquid seaweed fertilizer is normally used as a foliar spray. Extracted from seaweed, this fertilizer increases the produce when seeds are soaked in it for a while. Statistics has revealed that rice, black gram and green gram harvests increased significantly after using the substance. In order to use this brand, 100ml of MBP-liquid fertilizer has to be diluted in one liter of water. It can then be sprayed onto the plants.

Granular organic seaweed fertilizer contains micronutrients such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, sodium and many more, which are essential for the healthy growth of plants. The presence of these micronutrients retains moisture, keeps the plants aerated and increases the formation of humas. By stimulating the root system, plants are able to breathe easily. To apply this fertilizer you can add 25 to 30 kg directly to the soil.

Dried seaweed powder is another form of seaweed fertilizer where the salt from the seaweed is removed, and then it is dried and powdered. Like in the case of organic seaweed fertilizer, this can be applied directly to the soil. Results have shown that the soil improves in quality, becomes soft and porous. By improving the enzymatic activity it increases crop productivity. You can spread about 30 kg of the powder to one acre of land and then plow it to get more value out of it.

Neptune Harvest has come out with an Organic Fish/Seaweed Blend Fertilizer, which has increased the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. After using this brand, results have shown that flowers are more fragrant and do not fade away quickly. Goji Berries Inc has created a seaweed fertilizer by extracting seaweed found in Nova Scotia in the Atlantic. It is said to possess more than sixty micronutrients perfect for growing Goji plants. It is important that seaweed is selected properly and processed under strict quality standards. If this is not done the seaweed will lack in basic nutrients and thus affect the quality of the crop.

By applying the fertilizer in a correct manner, you can expect to get better germination of seeds, healthier leaves and stems, longer period for fruition, and over all strength to combat diseases and dangerous pests. In recent years seaweed fertilizer manufacturers have been found in China, Southeast Asia, South Korea, North Korea and Japan. Today there are about ten manufacturers who sell quality fertilizers, which have brought forth good results. Therefore, you have a wide choice to choose from in order to give your plants added life.
