What’s seaweed extract?
When it comes to seaweed extract, it indicates seaweed powder or seaweed liquid. It is extract from brown seaweed ascophyllum nodosum. In addition to alginic acid, seaweed extract also contains essential plant elements nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sulfur (S), iron (Fe), and manganese (Mn), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), molybdenum (Mo), boron (B). It also contains 18 protein amino acids that plants can directly absorb and utilize, and plant growth substances that have significant effects on plant physiological processes ( Auxin, cytokinin, gibberellin, etc.), as well as contains vitamins, nucleotides, humic acid and plant stress resistance factors. Seaweed extract integrates plant nutrients, biologically active substances, and plant stress resistance factors. It is an ideal full-function seaweed fertilizer.
Why seaweed extract stimulates root system?
- Seaweed can absorb nutrients in seawater 440,000 times larger than its own volume. Seaweed has a well-developed root system and strong ability to absorb nutrients. According to scientific research and trial experiments, seaweed auxin has the function of stimulating the development of crop roots. The seaweed extract contains high seaweed auxin content, which can grow and strengthen roots after use, and can nourish and protect roots.
- Seaweed extract can improve the internal pore space of the soil, coordinate the ratio of solid, liquid, and gas in the soil, restore the balance of natural colloids lost due to excessive soil burden and chemical pollution, increase soil biological vitality, and promote the release of available nutrients , Improve crop resistance and ability to resist repeated cropping. The improvement of the soil environment is conducive to promoting root growth.
- The seaweed iodine and betaine in the seaweed extract can enhance the resistance of the root system to bad environment, thereby protecting the root system and benefiting the growth of the root system.
