North Atlantic kelp meal (Ascophyllum nodosum) is a type of seaweed sustainably harvested from Nova Scotia, Canada's cold, pristine waters.  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.  

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

  • 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, providing your plants with a steady supply of essential nutrients for several months.    
  • Improves Soil Water-Holding Capacity: The polysaccharides in kelp meal Help increase soil porosity and water-holding capacity, helping plants 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 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 benefit 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 an excellent choice for eco-conscious gardeners and farmers.
