From the makers of Mills Magic Mix!! The benefits of seaweed go beyond supplying nutrients. The sea water that provides seaweed with nutrients also carries bacteria, viruses, and fungi. As a defense against these organisms, it is thought that seaweed synthesizes an arsenal of chemical compounds, and these in turn can be used by garden plants. Seaweed also suffers damage from storms and foraging marine animals, yet regrows rapidly. In fact, some seaweeds are rich in compounds known as plant growth regulators. When seaweed is incorporated into soil or sprayed on leaves, plants absorb its compounds for their own use. Seaweed promotes rapid, healthy growth and also stimulates the activity of bacteria that decompose soil particles into simpler nutrient compounds that plants can readily absorb. Chelating compounds in seaweed latch onto these nutrients, preventing them from leaching out of the soil, yet readily releasing them to plants.:This product is not considered a fertilizer as the amounts of NP&K are relatively low, but it contains all the micro-elements from A to Z, growth plant hormones, vitamins, enzymes and carbohydrates. It's a biostimulant, root system developer, and minor-nutrient deficiency cure. It can be used in conjunction with any water soluble spray. Reduce herbicide by adding liquid kelp, yet maintain the same kill effectiveness.
