Seaweed (kelp) remains a scientifically proven, natural, cost-effective, biodegradable agri-input that improves crop health and yields. Seaweeds naturally increase chemical messenger levels required for intracellular communication. This not only stimulates a stronger root development, it increases water utility efficiency and aids in overcoming environmental stressors. The result is healthier plants that are less susceptible to disease. When combined with a proper fertilizer plan, kelp extract improves crop production, quality and shelf life. Once plants are established, regular applications of Auxano to the foliage should commence.
