Biostimulating effects of seaweed

๐Ÿ“œ The biostimulating effects of seaweed have been recognized by early agriculture practitioners since ancient roman times.

๐ŸŒฑ Plant seedlings were covered with algae to promote their growth.

๐Ÿงช The involvement of hormones as active compounds have been long speculated in algae, but the first proof of the bioactive forms of auxin, cytokinin, Gibberellic Acid (GA), brassinosteroids, Abscisic Acid (ABA), Jasmonic Acid (JA) and polyamines.

๐ŸŒฟ Phytohormones produced by seaweed have an impact on the whole growing cycle of a crop:

โœ”๏ธ ABA is a key regulating factor of seed dormancy and leaf abscision process,

โœ”๏ธ gibberellins are important regulators of the germination process,

โœ”๏ธ a joined action of auxins, gibberellins and cytokinins regulates key developmental phases from vegetative to generative growth.

๐Ÿ”Ž UKELP - is an Ecklonia maxima-based liquid suspension acting as an efficient soil conditioner and booster of crop field performance.

๐Ÿ’ก This extract offers the highest concentration of natural plant growth hormones, strengthening your plant cell walls and stimulating the yield potential.
