Alginic acid is obtained from seaweed/kelp cell wall, and is an important fertilizer for plants. In addition to supplying nutrients, it also acts as a soil conditioner.
Also called alginate, alginic acid is derived from kelp. It actually makes up a significant percentage of brown kelp’s mass, and is responsible for helping give the plant rigidity while submerged in seawater.
Alginic acid can reduce the surface tension of water, form a film on the surface of the plant, increase the contact area, make it easier for water-soluble substances to enter the plant cell through the surface cell membrane of the stem and leaf, so that the plant can absorb the nutrients in the seaweed extract most effectively Therefore, if the seaweed liquid fertilizer is used in combination with insecticides, fungicides and chemical fertilizers, the effect will be better, which can reduce the cost of spraying and has a synergistic effect on pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Foreign reports have reported that the natural antibiotics contained in alginic acid have antiviral effects. Seaweed fertilizer The raw material is selected from natural seaweed, which has good compatibility with terrestrial plants, is non-toxic and harmless to humans and livestock, and has no pollution to the environment. It has advantages that no other fertilizer can match.
Alginic acid can be soil conditioner to directly increase the organic matter in the soil or through plants, activate various beneficial microorganisms in the soil, and act as a catalyst in the cycle of plant and microbial metabolites, increasing the biological effectiveness of the soil. The metabolites of soil microorganisms can provide more nutrients for plants.
Alginic acid is a natural biological agent that works in harmony with plant and soil ecosystems. The natural compounds it contains, such as sodium alginate, are natural soil conditioners, which can promote the formation of soil aggregate structure, improve the pore space in the soil, coordinate the ratio of solid, liquid and gas in the soil, and restore the soil due to excessive soil burden and chemical The balance of natural colloids lost by pollution increases soil biological vitality, promotes the release of available nutrients, is conducive to root growth, and improves crop resistance.
