Organic Kelp Meal (1-0-2) 50 lb. Bag

kelp_meal_SSeaweed has been used throughout history as a natural fertilizer for growing crops. It contains literally every nutrient known to man. This organic kelp meal is great for activating dull and washed out soil and is great when mixed with compost material, soil or flowering beds. This gentle, organic fertilizer has an NPK readout of 1-0-2, meaning it has a gentle dosage of both nitrogen and potash (potassium).

Ascophyllum Nodosum, or Norwegian Kelp, is one of the most popular and most studied seaweeds in the world, and has been found to be highly beneficial in agriculture. This seaweed grows in the cold waters of the Northern Atlantic and is harvested offshore, removing the possibility of contaminants that are found in seaweed that has washed up on shore. This cold water helps to lock in the nutrients that are so beneficial to both plants and animals.

This organic kelp meal contains a multitude of naturally occurring compounds that influence various plant biochemical processes, leading to increased protein and enzyme synthesis, improved cell water retention and membrane integrity.
