Natural seaweeds extracts give to the crops the following benefits:
- ASSIMILABILITY OF THE ELEMENTS: Natural seaweed extracts improves the assimilation of active ingredients on plant through the leaf surfaces of the plants. They improve wetting, spreading and stick ability of these compounds to ensure improved uptake time and reduced losses due to washing off. Crystallizing is also avoided due to reduced water evaporation, resulting in an absorption rate of 80- 90%. As well stimulates the assimilability of the nutrients from the soil.
- PHYTOSANITARY STATUS OF THE PLANTS: Seaweeds extracts improve plant resistance to frost and drought and increase crop yields. Plants sprayed seaweed extracts are also characterized by higher resistance to pests and pathogens. Seaweed extracts as well contribute to the recovery of damages caused by insects and bacterial or fungal diseases.
- PLANT GROWHT PROMOTERS: Formulations based on seaweeds extracts are rich in natural phytohormones (gibberellins, auxins, cytokinin), amino acids and fatty acids which are responsible for plant growth. Bio-stimulant activity of seaweeds extracts obtained from marine algae is connected with the presence of plant growth regulators, particularly cytokinin mainly responsible for plant aging delay, mitosis induction, stimulation of chloroplast maturation, growth of shoot and lateral buds.
