Every farmer and gardener should be using kelp in conjunction with a regular fertilizing program. Research and field trials have confirmed the role of kelp in increasing crop yields, drought resistance, frost protection, and stress recovery. Although kelp extracts do contain small amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, their value is not as a fertilizer but as a growth stimulant. They contain potent concentrations of trace minerals, micronutrients, amino acids, and vitamins essential to plant growth – but most important, kelp contains many growth hormones, including cytokinins, auxins, and gibberellins, which stimulate cell division and larger root systems. Kelp extracts can be applied as a foliar spray or as a soil soak and are excellent as a root dip for reducing transplant shock. Important to use recommended rates because these extracts are so potent. We now carry our very own, high quality, potent and effective liquid kelp.
