Kelp Fertilizer vs Liquid Kelp Nutrients

What are Liquid Kelp Nutrients?

The use of Liquid kelp based nutrients in agriculture goes back thousands of years and is still an important part of the farming industry today. It can be said with honesty and scientific facts that kelp is the most effective additive next to the highest ranking advanced fertilizer. Kelp is actually classified as a soil conditioner in the gardening world, however, its benefits go way beyond that.

The specific type of kelp that we use in our plant nutrient JEWEL is called Ascophyllum Nodosum. It is sought after for its source of micronutrients, macronutrients, and minerals. It also contains a variety of organic compounds such as amino acids, hormones, enzymes, and general organic matter. When extracted using our proprietary enzymatic methods, all of these beneficial compounds are readily available as a very concentrated material that can be added to growing all mediums such as soil, coco, hydroponic, aquaponics, and aeroponics, and it is also a very powerful foliar spray.

The Benefits of Liquid Kelp Over Powered Kelp Fertilizers

Liquid Kelp is an essential investment for any maintenance program for the growing of plants. Kelp contains over sixty minerals and traces of elements, along with numerous biostimulants. It also contains iodine which is a natural disease suppressant. Many chemical fertilizers and powdered kelp varieties contain synthetic ingredients or use a chemical process to breakdown the kelp into a powdered form. Powdered formulations are also not ready for immediate nutrient uptake, therefore, growth and health can be negatively impacted compared to the results when using liquid kelp nutrients.

Moreover, because most plants absorb their nutrients through their leaves, plants benefit significantly more from a foliar application.​ When using JEWEL as a foliar spray, it works quickly to give your plants the micronutrients they need. On average you can expect to see results in the first 24-48 hours after a foliar spray type application. Buying a liquid kelp product will help save you money not only on nutrient but also on equipment as our concentrated mix will not clog your lines or create nasty buildup.
