Fair Dinkum Fertilizers Seaweed Gold liquid seaweed is made from fresh
Australian bull kelp, (Durvillea potatorum), collected from the
rugged North West coast of Tasmania.
It is digested using a warm hydrolysis process specially developed
for the brewing of fresh kelp by Fair Dinkum Fertilizers. It is also
known as Seaweed - All purpose liquid seaweed concentrate.
The process maximises the extraction of the plant growth regulators.
The extract has been extensively tested in both laboratory and in
The plant growth regulators or hormones it contains, including
auxins, cytokinins, betaines
sugars and phenolics are stable compounds in the product and lead to
increased chlorophyll production, increased root development,
increased tolerance with environmental stresses caused by drought,
frost, insect attack and salinity, and an increased uptake of
“locked-up” nutrients in the soil.
Fair Dinkum Fertilizers Seaweed Gold, has been found to give significant
increase in root development in a range of plants including
ornamentals, vegetables and cereals. Best results are obtained by
two or more applications between 3-5 L/ha.
The results are more marked if the application is made in the early
stage of plant development. However, it is not recommended that
potatoes are treated before tuber initiation as this will lead to an
increased number of small potatoes. (This may be used to advantage
for seed potato production).
Seaweed Gold contributes to greater microbial activity in the soil and this
in turn, together with greater root development leads to increased
Spraying sensitive crops such as citrus, capsicum and tomatoes with
Seaweed Gold can reduce damage from late frost. In drought conditions,
plants sprayed with Gold have a better survival rate than unsprayed
plants. In saline soils, Seaweed Gold significantly increase plant vigour
too. In marginal land, the correct use of Seaweed Gold can make the
difference between a profitable return, or a loss.
