Plants depend on healthy, nutrient-rich soil conditions to thrive. Acadian Kelp™ works with all soil types to create exceptional growing conditions with nutrients that result in maximizing the yield of organically-grown, healthy and stress-resistant plants.
Acadian kelp meal is 100% pure Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed meal. The organic matter and soil conditioning properties in Ascophyllum Kelp Meal are important to the fertility and productivity of agricultural soils. Its association with soil microflora, bacteria and fungi play an important role in soil fertility and plant nutrient uptake. The minerals released and humus colloids formed during decomposition of Ascophyllum Kelp Meal, result in the aggregation of soil particles and the retention of nutrients which might otherwise be leached from the soil. Good soil structure provides improved aeration, water holding capacity and soil fertility and makes soils less prone to erosion. Acadian kelp meal is used in horticultural soils, potting mixes and as a top dressing amendment in turf. OMRI listed for organic production.
