Important Plant Hormones in Soil Mate Wild Harvested Liquid Seaweed Fertiliser
Liquid Seaweed Fertilisers are hormones. Seaweed contains four primary hormone types: auxins, cytokinins, betaines and gibbelerins. These hormones, although only required in very small proportions, are essential to plant health and vitality.
+ Auxins There are many different auxins, and they all have a specific role. The primary function of auxins is to balance the plants speed of growth. They have both growth-stimulating and growth-delaying functions. They also stimulate root growth and prevent bud forming or bud opening at the wrong times. Seaweed plays an important role in the plant’s own auxins production as the hormones form with the help of trace elements from the liquid seaweed fertiliser.
+ Cytokinins Cytokinins are another group of essential plant hormones. They initiate and activate basic growth processes. Cytokinins available in liquid seaweed stimulates growth with greater vigor because they mobilize nutrients in the leaves. They also provide protection from marginal frost (up to -3 Celsius). Cytokinins also control the senescence, loss of a cell’s power of division and growth (aging processes) in the plant.
+ Betaines Betaines play an essential role in the osmotic processes in plants. They help to increase the water uptake in plants and are extremely helpful in dry conditions. Betaines are also particularly helpful to plants undergoing stress.
+ Organic Carbon Organic Carbon is the basis of soil fertility and is a powerful food source and stimulation for biological growth and reproduction.
• Acts as a powerful bio-stimulant to accelerate biological growth
• Improve fertiliser efficiency
• Increase cation exchange capacity
• Increase penetration and retention of calcium in the soil
• Reduce leaching and increase soil fertility
• Increase water holding capacity
• Improve soil structure for the long term
• Decrease plant stress
• Increase root growth
• Improves profitability through yield increases
