Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is an important part
of any soil fertility/plant nutrition program. It contains
8% readily available Potash, a grade of 0-0-8 (N-P-K). Potassium
(K) is considered the "universal helper" and is
a major contributor to plant health because it regulates
so many important processes in the plant. AGGRAND Natural
Kelp and Sulfate of Potash also contains 2% sulfur (S).
Sulfur, called the "fourth major nutrient," has
many important functions in plant growth and must be present
in sufficient amounts in the soil and plant tissue to realize
the benefits of nitrogen and potassium.
Kelp and Sulfate of Potash utilizes kelp concentrate
from the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Kelp from
this source contains high levels of plant growth hormones,
amino acids, micronutrients and potassium. When used as
fertilizer, kelp makes plants more robust and healthy by
enhancing their heat, drought and cold tolerance. In addition,
kelp increases the plant growth rate and fruit production,
size, and quality.
Kelp and Sulfate of Potash contains minimally
processed sulfate of potash from Great Salt Lake in Utah.
Unlike other sources of potassium this source does not contain
chloride (Cl) which can be damaging to soil life and plant
roots. Potassium must be present in large quantities in
plants because it is a component of the fluids which flood
the plant tissue. Potassium-deficient plants are susceptible
to insect attack, have weak stalks, and underdeveloped root
systems. Sufficient potassium produces high quality vegetables
and tree fruits. Dark green leaves, high nutritional quality,
firm stalks, prolific root growth, greater plant vigor,
improved nutrient uptake, higher yields, fewer blemishes
increased disease and insect resistance, and increased fruit
shelf-life are benefits of crops grown with AGGRAND Natural
Kelp and Sulfate of Potash.
Sulfur is often present in plants in equal
or greater amounts than potassium. Sufficient sulfur produces
high quality and yields of vegetables, tree fruits, small
grains, legumes, and forages. High protein and oil levels
in seed and high protein and vitamin A production in forages
and legumes are benefits of increasing sulfur fertility.
In addition to the many benefits provided
by the kelp and sulfate of potash in AGGRAND
Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash, naturally
occurring proprietary ingredients added to this fertilizer
release nutrients from the soil, act as chelating agents,
aid in foliar and root uptake, and stimulate soil biological
AGGRAND Natural Kelp
and Sulfate of Potash is the key to overall plant
health, quality, increased marketability, high yields and
increased stress tolerance.
