Sigma Kelp Meal is made of dried and milled seaweed. Kelp Meal is an excellent source of micronutrients and beneficial plant growth promoters. Kelp meal is a very high-quality natural fertilizer. It is a good source of nitrogen and potassium. It also contains minerals, amino acids, and trace amounts of other micronutrients.
Kelp meal is seaweed, specifically Ascophyllum nodosum (also known as rockweed, Norwegian kelp, knotted kelp) and laminara brown algae.
Kelp meal contains over 60 naturally-chelated minerals and essential elements that the fast-growing sea plant absorbs from nutrient-rich waters of the north-western coast of Europe including East Greenland, North Atlantic Ocean, and others cold water oceans.
When added to all soils, kelp meal will enhance plant nutrition, improve overall plant vigor, and encourage tolerance to crop stresses such as insect pests, disease, frost, and drought.
Managing the fertility of agricultural soils is an everyday challenge facing farmers all around. In many areas, heavy farming practices have diminished rich and productive agricultural land into soil with poor physical structure and nutritional deficiencies. Low fertility levels in depleted soils have limited potential for producing quality crops.
Nourishing healthy soil requires good management practices to improve the soil’s physical, biological, and chemical characteristics. Today’s successful farmers can do so by using the natural soil additives of all of Sigma Marine Fertilizers. Sigma Kelp Meal is one key component of soil nutrition.
