Natural seaweed extract for better crop yields
ECKLONIA MAXIMA kelps are large brown algae seaweeds that make up the other Laminaria. There are about 30 different genera, Ecklonia Maxima or Sea Bamboo being found only in the South African West Coast and each one being unique in his chemical structure.
Ecklonia Maxima contains all growth promoting nutrients. Compared to other Laminaria, Ecklonia Maxima is unique due to its high Auxin content and Alginate composition.
From before history seaweed was used to promote crops. What did they know?
We offer our Ecklonia Maxima kelp extract manufacturing services to bulk users with a wide range of Free IAA, pH and Micro element compositions. Our products are quality assured according to your specification with the option of a white label for commercial clients.
Production processes also have an influence on kelp extract functioning and brings some unique but mostly overlapping product characteristics. Available extraction processes are:
From freshly harvested or dried kelp;
Solvent based extraction;
Freeze and thaw cycling;
Pressure release rupturing;
The above at different temperatures;
or Combinations of the above.
It is the aggregate of components in Ecklonia Maxima that makes our extracts effective. There is not a single component that is solely responsible for the functioning of kelp extracts.
The contributing components are:
Plant growth regulating substances, predominantly free IAA with the full range of amino acids present. All the micro nutrients in minor quantities, enzymes, approximately 60 other elements that may be beneficial to plant growth, alginates that have been proven to evoke auxin like responses in plants, poly- and oligo-saccharides, vitamins and lipids all in a natural format that’s biologically available for plant uptake.
For the above reason we use the entire kelp in our products.
KelpX-5 is the final product of a combination of manufacturing processes that brings the benefits of each process into the product.
KelpX-5 is a concentrated high viscous brown liquid with a ocean odour pre-filtered to 50 micron.
KelpX-5 with dilution the bacteriostatic effect disappear and is then beneficial for micro-organisms.
KelpX-5 has a 50% carbon content and contains no colourants.
KelpX-5 is standardized on 375 micro gram Free IAA content, the dominant Auxin, by an Independent Laboratory.
KelpX-5 is cost effective due to its high concentration, saving on packaging and distribution cost.
400ml/ha foliar application at 3-4 leaf stage.
200ml/ha in-furrow during planting and 400ml/ha at 3 weeks after emergence yielded a 23 percent improvement
200ml/ha in-furrow during planting and 400ml/ha at 3 weeks after emergence yielded a 19 percent improvement
Focused on increasing root growth, plant establishment, nutrient uptake, stress resistance, crop quality and yield.
