DESCRIPTION FOR USE:

Whenever possible, the total dosage should be applied in several smaller-dose applications, not one large application.  Do not spray or irrigate more than once every 7 days.  It may be applied by itself or as an additive with most companion materials.

The powder may be diluted in any volume of water; however, it is recommended that enough water be used to make sure complete leaf coverage.  The addition of biodegradable surfactant is recommended for most dispersal and leaf adherence.

Seaweed Extract Powder soluble powder should be used at the rate of 1 gm / 1 L for turf, crops, and plants.  A minimum of 24 applications per year is recommended, but more frequent applications are preferable.  Do not exceed 1 gm / 1 L water in any one application.

BENEFITS OF SEAWEED EXTRACT POWDER AS FERTILIZERS:

When applied as basal dose Seaweed Extract Powder improves soil texture and promotes natural flora and worms. As a basal application, it is excellent supplement to chemical fertilisers. It adds humus to the soil. It improves soil fertility as nutrients and hormones directly available to the plants in a natural form.  Seaweed Extract Powder supplies Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potash as well as trace minerals like Zn, Mn, Mg, Fe, etc.  Seaweed Extract Powder has natural plant growth material like auxins, gibberellins and cytokinins.  The trace elements present in Seaweed Extract Powder are in naturally chelated form and are readily available to the plants.

Specific carbohydrates in our Seaweed Extract Powder serve as a source of food for beneficial and benign soil bacteria, resulting in a large increase in microbe numbers. These microbes produce plant growth stimulating compounds that encourage root growth and a much larger root mass. The increased bacterial population can also either physically exclude or compete with potential plant pathogenic soil fungi.

Seaweed extracts in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India – Manufacturers and Suppliers

Seaweed extracts in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India – Manufacturers and Suppliers

The seaweeds resources are intensively used to improve harvest quantity and quality in agriculture and horticulture. The beneficial effects of seaweed products on the cultured plants are well documented.


At Saosis we manufacture one of the best in class Seaweed liquid formulation (25% concentration) which is suitable for all kinds of cultivation. To learn more about Seaweed product click here. You may also visit our online shop to buy it online and get free home delivery. For more information contact us at +91 9830609065


The using of seaweed products improve seeds germination, seedlings development, increase plant tolerance to environmental stresses (Zhang and Ervin, 2004, 2008), and enhance plant growth and yield. Moreover seaweeds are used as soil amendment in pests control and plant diseases management. Liquid extracts obtained from seaweeds have gained importance as foliar sprays and soil drench for many crops including various grasses, cereals, flowers and vegetable species. Also they apply to stimulate seedling germination and rooting.

At present one of the most promising applications of seaweeds is their use as plant biostimulants. For example, aqueous extracts of Sargassum johnstonii at concentration from 0.1 to 0.8% (w/v) that is equivalent 1–8 mgSW mL-1 used as foliar spray and soil drench enhanced vegetative growth (plant height, shoot length, root length, and number of branches) and reproductive parameters (flower number,
fruit number, and fresh weight) of tomato. Also foliar application of 15% (v/v) aqueous extracts prepared from fresh Kappaphycus alvarezii resulted in 57% increase of Glycine max yield compare to the control and intensified nutrient uptake by soybean. The introductory soaking of Triticum aestivun seeds in 20% (0.2 mgSW mL-1
) extracts of Sargassum wightii for 24 h gave an 11% increase in seed germination, a 63% enhance in number of lateral roots and 46% increase in shoots length in compare to control.

Seaweed extracts contribute to the recovery of damages caused by insects and bacterial or fungal diseases. Formulations basing on algal extracts are rich in phytohormones (gibberelins, auxins, cytikinins), amino acids and fatty acids which are responsible for plant growth, development and resistance to pathogens.

Biostimulant activity of extracts obtained from marine algae is connected with the presence of plant growth regulators, particularly cytokinins mainly responsible for plant aging delay, mitosis induction, stimulation of chloroplast maturation, growth of shoot and lateral buds. The amount of cytokinins changes and their ratio to other plant growth hormones depends on the species of algae resulting in different effects of seaweed extracts on plant cultivation.

How to make effective use of seaweed based plant fertilizer

Seaweed_fertilizer
Saosis Seaweed contains 25% Seaweed. To buy it online Click here

Deep in the bed of almost every ocean and sea, there lies a large plant-like organism
that survives incredibly harsh conditions through the sheer power of its natural vitamins, nutrients and hormones. The turbulent waves and swarms of kelp eating animals mean that to survive, it has to propagate easier and grow faster than your average plant.

Companies manufacturing products for Hydroponics harness everything that makes Seaweed such a powerful, fast growing and disease resistant plant by distilling it into seaweed plant food.

Seaweed plant food can make a fantastic addition to your overall nutrient and supplement strategy, especially if you are growing organically, but only if you know how to do it correctly. Here are the best ways you can make sure that you are getting the most out of your Seaweed based plant food.

Spraying it on leaves – Though the Saosis seaweed Powder plant food is produced with the expectation that it will be used primarily in the root zone, it can also make for a fantastic fertilizer. This can be particularly helpful you if you want to protect your plant from disease. Kelp has natural antibiotics that can help keep harmful bacteria at bay. In addition, foliar feeding can help give your plants an extra boost of vitamins and hormones that they might not be receiving through their roots.

Seaweed extracts in plant cultivation

Seaweed extracts in plant cultivation

Seaweed extracts in plant cultivation research show that the application of seaweed extracts in plant cultivation exhibits positive effect on cultivated plants. Algae extracts improve plant resistance to frost and drought and increase crop yields. Plants sprayed with the use of seaweed extracts are also characterized by higher resistance to pests and pathogens and more efficient consumption of nutrients from soil.

Seaweed extracts contribute to the recovery of damages caused by insects and bacterial or fungal diseases. Formulations basing on algal extracts are rich in phytohormones (gibberelins, auxins, cytikinins), amino acids and fatty acids which are responsible for plant growth, development and resistance to pathogens.

Biostimulant activity of extracts obtained from marine algae is connected with the presence of plant growth regulators, particularly cytokinins mainly responsible for plant aging delay, mitosis induction, stimulation of chloroplast maturation, growth of shoot and lateral buds. The amount of cytokinins changes and their ratio to other plant growth hormones depends on the species of algae resulting in different effects of seaweed extracts on plant cultivation.

Seaweed extracts can be delivered to plants in many ways. Soaking of seeds in algal extracts is one of the methods. This way of treatment can effect seeds germination. Foliar and classical soil application can be used as well. In addition to application methods, also the concentration of seaweed extract, species of algae, plant variety affects the efficiency of seaweed extracts as plant biostimulants.
