Soil nutrition

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”.

AgriSea Soil Conditioner:

  • increases soil micro-biological activity – more worms and microbes to manufacture humus for soil health
  • soil health improves progress with each application
  • no harmful residues = no withholding period after application
  • improved palatability - “stock will clean paddocks up”
  • releases locked-up minerals and nutrients
  • promotes healthy root mass development and therefore increases the density of pasture
  • greater root mass provides additional protection in times of drought
  • ideal as a compost starter and/or activator because its primary
  • function is to feed biological life.
