Fair Dinkum Liquid Seaweed for Tomatoes is a blend of organic liquid seaweed and added nutrients. The seaweed extract on its own is not a complete fertilizer so macro and micronutrients have been added at an appropriate level.
It has been specifically formulated with a high level of potassium to enhance fruit set and development. If grown in a reasonably fertile soil no other fertilizer treatment will be needed but if grown in a low nutrient potting mix it is suggested that a small amount of lime may be beneficial to enhance skin texture.
Compared with traditional tomato fertilizers Fair Dinkum Liquid Seaweed for Tomatoes will give better availability of both macro and micro nutrients and less build up of salts in the growing medium.
The seaweed extract component is made from fresh Bull Kelp, (Durvillea potatorum), collected from the rugged North West coast of Tasmania. It is digested using a warm hydrolysis process specially developed for fresh bull kelp.
The process maximizes the extraction of plant growth regulators. The extract has been extensively tested in both laboratory and in the field. It contains a number of plant growth regulators, (or hormones) including auxins, cytokinins and betaines.
It also contains a number of sugars and phenolics. These compounds are stable in the product and lead to increase chlorophyll production, increased root development, increased tolerance of environmental stress caused by drought, frost, insect attack and salinity and increased uptake of “locked-up” nutrients.
The product is suitable for both plants in pots or in the soil but should not be used for two weeks after planting out until seedlings are established.
