Sunmatte Seaweed Extract is made of fresh seaweed (alga), such as Ascophyllum nodosum, Sargassum, etc, which are natural, non-toxic, harmless and non-polluting, and rich in minor elements and natural growth hormones.
Seaweed contains several nutrients that benefit plants. For years, farmers and gardeners who live near the coast have used seaweed to improve plant growth.
Seaweed fertilizer increases corn crop yields, according to research published in 2013 at the University of Rhode Island. Seaweed fertilizers also increase the production of a variety of crops, including potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, apples, okra and oranges, notes the National Gardening Association. It also helps make grapes sweeter and gladiolus flowers larger. These improvements are likely because seaweed contains phosphorous, which is is known for helping with healthy fruit growth.
Seaweed contains phosphorous, which helps plants develop healthy and strong root systems. Seaweed also improves soil texture, greatly improving drainage and aeration. Plants that grow in soils with good drainage are less likely to have issues with root rot or other diseases caused by excess moisture. To get these benefits from seaweed, add seaweed to your compost pile or incorporate some seaweed into the soil.
