The live plants are naturally dried at low temperatures to maintain the proper moisture level for vitamin and amino acid stability. Then they are pulverized into small pieces so that it readily decomposes in the soil.
Oceanic Kelp Meal contains 60 trace minerals, 21 amino acids, enzymes, and alginates, which feed and stimulate the soil microbes (bacteria that live in your soil). This aids in the breakdown of organic material and improves the quality of the soil.
Kelp Meal improves soil structure and water holding capacity. Kelp Meal forms cross-linked organic chelates with nutrients, protecting them from loss by leaching and making them readily available for plant uptake.
Many species of seaweed have been used in agriculture and large differences of nutritive values exist among them. As with many natural soil amendments,
Kelp Meal continues to provide benefit for years after initial application.
