Fair Dinkum Fertilizers Gold liquid seaweed is made from fresh Australian bull kelp, (Durvillea potatorum), collected from the rugged North West coast of Tasmania.
It is digested using a warm hydrolysis process specially developed for the brewing of fresh kelp by Fair Dinkum Fertilizers. It is also known as Seaweed - All purpose liquid seaweed concentrate.
The process maximises the extraction of the plant growth regulators. The extract has been extensively tested in both laboratory and in the field.
The plant growth regulators or hormones it contains, including auxins, cytokinins, betaines sugars and phenolics are stable compounds in the product and lead to increased chlorophyll production, increased root development, increased tolerance with environmental stresses caused by drought, frost, insect attack and salinity, and an increased uptake of “locked-up” nutrients in the soil.
Fair Dinkum Fertilizers Gold, has been found to give significant increase in root development in a range of plants including ornamentals, vegetables and cereals. Best results are obtained by two or more applications between 3-5 L/ha.
The results are more marked if the application is made in the early stage of plant development. However, it is not recommended that potatoes are treated before tuber initiation as this will lead to an increased number of small potatoes. (This may be used to advantage for seed potato production).
Gold contributes to greater microbial activity in the soil and this in turn, together with greater root development leads to increased nutrient availability.
Spraying sensitive crops such as citrus, capsicum and tomatoes with Gold can reduce damage from late frost. In drought conditions, plants sprayed with Gold have a better survival rate than unsprayed plants. In saline soils, Gold significantly increase plant vigour too. In marginal land, the correct use of Gold can make the difference between a profitable return, or a loss.
