Kelp contains essential plant macro- and micro-elements as well as plant growth regulators (PGRs) or phytohormones such as auxins, cytokinins and gibberellins.
Kelp is high in alginate which has chelating properties, binding to cations which then absorb moisture and expand to improve soil texture and growth of beneficial microorganisms. Kelp as a foliar application may prolong leaf health under stressful conditions. It has benefits for soil and plant and can be applied throughout the plant’s life cycle. Kelp also improves root formation and development on propagated plant tissue i.e. on stems during plant ‘cloning’.
