Manufactured from a sustainable NZ resource this product is hand brewed in small batches over 90 days. A mixture of herbs is added to provide a balanced ‘tonic’ for the benefit of soil dwelling organisms, as well as the root systems. Plants do not live by NPK alone –micronutrients are essential for plant growth and development. Seaweed, being a rich source of available micronutrients, supplements and compliments NPK. AgriSea Soil Conditioner is excellent at helping to release nutrients previously unavailable for plant use.
It is also a very good compost starter and activator. “Turf grass trials conducted at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute found that seaweed applications to the soil increased root mass from 67% to 175% when compared to the untreated plots”.
