KELP MEAL  

North Atlantic kelp meal (Ascophyllum nodosum) is a type of seaweed that is sustainably harvested from the cold, pristine waters of Nova Scotia, Canada.  It has a rich biochemical composition and is known to be one of the world's most nutrient-dense kelp varieties. It contains in excess of 70 minerals and trace elements, vitamins, polysaccharides, all essential amino acids, and a wide range of plant growth hormones like cytokinins, gibberellins, betaines, and auxins. 

  • Enhances Plant Growth And Development: Kelp meal contains natural plant growth regulators, such as cytokinins and auxins, which can promote cell division and elongation, leading to healthier and more vigorous plants. It can also increase root growth, which helps plants to absorb nutrients and water more efficiently. 
  • Provides Essential Nutrients: Kelp meal is rich in essential plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and micronutrients like iodine, iron, zinc, and manganese. These nutrients can help to improve plant health and boost crop yields.
  • Slow-Release Fertilizer: Kelp meal releases nutrients into the soil gradually over time, this can help provide your plants with a steady supply of essential nutrients for several months. 
  • Improves Soil Water-Holding Capacity: The polysaccharides in kelp meal Help to increase soil porosity and water-holding capacity, helping plants to better withstand drought conditions.
  • Resistance To Environmental Stress: Kelp meal contains a range of compounds such as betaines, polyamines, and mannitol, which can help plants to resist environmental stress such as drought, salinity, and extreme temperatures. These compounds help to improve plant cell membrane integrity, increase water-use efficiency, and reduce oxidative damage to plant cells

Overall, North Atlantic kelp meal is an excellent natural fertilizer and soil amendment that can provide many benefits to plant health and soil fertility. Its sustainable harvesting practices in Nova Scotia ensure that its use does not negatively impact the marine environment, making it a great choice for eco-conscious gardeners and farmers. 

 It is processed within 24 hours of harvest to preserve its natural benefits.
