The Liquid Seaweed biostimulants is made of liquid kelp organic seaweed extract, contain several natural biologically active substances complemented by natural carbohydrate and carboxylic acid complexes that promote positive natural activity within treated plants. The product was historically seen as auxin-based, due to the strong rooting effect when applied on plants. However, more recent research showed only micro levels (parts per billion) of these elements in the liquid seaweed biostimulants but significant levels of polyamines and phlorotannins. Active levels were measured analytically, with the biological activity measured in plant bioassays 10 days after treatment. The complex actives like polyamines and phlorotannins in Algadofen indirectly promote the production of natural compounds within the plant itself, rather than delivering hormones to the plant. The combined effects of these actives and compounds leads to a healthier and stronger plant, producing better yields.
Liquid seaweed biostimulants benefits:
1. root development:
Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant, through its effective and safe extraction process, contains a significant level of phlorotannins, polyamines and other biological actives, all working in harmony to promote the plant's natural responses thereby triggering root initiation and development.
2. pollen tube development
Recent scientic studies indicates the dramatic effect Algaedofen has on pollen grain germination and pollen tube elongation. The pollen grain germinates and the pollen tube develops much faster when treated with our product. This ultimately results in improved fruit set and crop yield.
3. Fruit set
Not only does our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant stimulate pollen growth which leads to improved fruit set, it also plays an important role in the reproduction of plants from the development of reproductive structures in flowers, seed filling (the accumulation of starch, lipids and proteins in seeds) and the subsequent germination of seeds.
4. Fruit and berry size
Our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant promotes cell expansion and elongation having a direct effect on fruit sizing. By improving pollen growth and subsequent fertilisation, more seeds are formed in fruit. The seeds in fruit secrete compounds that in turn improve fruit and berry size.
5. Fruit color and shelf life
Our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant enhances quality attributes of produce, including fruit firmness, sugar content, colour, and longer shelf life.
6. Resistance to abiotic stresses
Scientific research shows that when plants experience stress, polyamine concentration dramatically increases, helping them to endure the threat. Our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant contains beneficial levels of biological elicitors, assisting the plants to better withstand drought, flooding, nutrient deficiency, frost as well as recovery from transplant shock. Our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant provides a healthy root system, stronger stems and foliar growth ensuring your plant will be more tolerant to abiotic stresses. Our product application directly after a crop has experienced stress such as drought, frost or flooding, also benefits the plant's recovery. After transplant and harvest crops can experience shock. Its application before or after these events will significantly improve re-establishment and ensure healthy reserves during dormancy.
7. Prevents leaf burn
While calcium application is important in apple production, it often results in leaf scorch, which will affect tree health and productivity. Our Liquid Seaweed Biostimulant acts as a buffer when applied together with calcium sprays to reduce the risk of leaf burn.
