Why choose Ascophyllum algae seaweed fertilizer

October 28, 2022

With the increasing popularity of organic fertilizers, seaweed fertilizers, as the fourth generation of new fertilizers, have higher production process requirements and higher raw material costs, and still occupy a large part of the market. This article will help you understand why you choose seaweed and what kind of seaweed fertilizer to choose.

What is seaweed fertilizer?

Seaweed fertilizer refers to a fertilizer made from macroalgae growing in the ocean by extracting the active ingredients in seaweed. Generally, kelp is used as a raw material, while Khumic and other high-quality seaweed fertilizers use foam Leaf algae as raw material.

Seaweed fertilizer can be applied to plants as nutrients during use, which can promote plant growth, increase yield and improve the quality of agricultural products. At the same time, as the fourth-generation new fertilizer, it has no harm to soil and environment.

What are the advantages of Ascophyllum nodosum?

Ascophyllum algae is mainly born in the Atlantic Ocean. Khumic is also a natural Ascophyllum algae directly imported from the North Atlantic origin. It is rich in mineral nutrients and organic nutrients and is the best raw material for processing seaweed fertilizers.

Ascophyllum algae is born with strong resistance to stress and has tenacious vitality. It grows on rocks at the seaside or on the seabed, and has strong enrichment and absorption capacity. It can metabolize and synthesize dozens of biologically active substances such as seaweed polysaccharides, mannitol, phenols, alginates, brown algae polyphenols, kelp polysaccharides, fucoidan, cytokinins, and gibberellins.

Ascophyllum nodosum is rich in minerals: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sulfur, as well as rich in vitamins: C, E, K, B and folic acid, and trace elements: zinc, iodine, manganese, copper, etc. ....

Characteristics of seaweed fertilizer

1. Rich in nutrients, active seaweed fertilizer contains a large amount of non-nitrogen-containing organic matter, more than 40 kinds of minerals and rich vitamins such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, iodine, etc., which are unmatched by terrestrial plants, especially those in seaweed. The unique seaweed polysaccharides, alginic acid, highly unsaturated fatty acids and various natural plant growth regulators can stimulate the production of non-specific active factors in plants and regulate the balance of endogenous hormones.

2. It is easily absorbed by plants. After special treatment, the active ingredients in seaweed fertilizer are in an active state that is easily absorbed by plants. They enter the plant body 2-3 hours after application, and have a fast absorption and conduction speed. The alginic acid in the seaweed fertilizer can reduce the surface tension of the water, form a film on the surface of the plant, increase the contact area, and the water-soluble substances can easily penetrate the surface cells of the stems and leaves, so that the plants can effectively absorb the nutrients in the seaweed extract Element. The use of seaweed in combination with pesticides, fungicides and chemical fertilizers is more effective, which can reduce spraying costs and have a synergistic effect on pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

3. It can improve the soil. Seaweed fertilizer is a natural biological agent, which can directly increase the organic matter and various microorganisms in the soil or through plants. These microorganisms can act as catalysts in the plant-microbial metabolite cycle, increasing soil bioavailability. Metabolites from plants and soil microorganisms can provide plants with more nutrients.

The natural compounds contained in seaweed fertilizer, such as sodium alginate, are natural soil conditioners, which can promote the formation of soil aggregate grenades, improve soil pore space, and coordinate the proportions of solid, liquid and gas in the soil. Restore the colloidal balance lost due to heavy soil burden and chemical pollution, increase the release rate of soil bioactive substances and effective nutrients, facilitate root growth, and improve crop resistance and resistance to repeated cropping.

4. The fertilizer effect is very long. Seaweed fertilizer can directly increase the organic matter in the soil or through plants. Various beneficial microorganisms in the soil can play a catalytic role in the cycle of plant-microbial metabolites and increase the biological efficiency of the soil. Metabolites from plants and soil microorganisms can provide plants with more nutrients. At the same time, the chelation system formed by seaweed polysaccharide and humic acid can release nutrients slowly and prolong the fertilizer effect.

5. Non-toxic, the raw material of seaweed fertilizer comes from natural seaweed, which has good affinity with terrestrial plants, is harmless to humans and animals, and has no pollution to the environment. It is a high-quality fertilizer for the production of harmless vegetables.

How to use seaweed fertilizer?

When seaweed fertilizer is used, it is generally mainly sprayed. The longer the moist time of foliar fertilization, the more nutrients the leaves absorb, and the better the effect. Under normal circumstances, it is advisable to keep the leaves moist for 30 minutes to 60 minutes. The effect is most obvious when the dilution concentration is 400-600 times.

The seaweed extract produced by Khumic has been proved after use, whether it is fruit, flower or field crops, the most obvious effect of using seaweed fertilizer is early maturity and increased yield, and Khumic production uses better Ascophyllum nodosum. The precipitation of the production line also has a great advantage in price.
