*** Sorry folks we are out of kelp meal. However we do have liquid seaweed made from kelp meal in stock. This should be better as it is concentrated, it goes further, and shipping is cheaper : https://lahaveriverberryfarm.ca/shop/seaweed-plant-food-0-0-1/ ****

 

Kelp Meal contains a wide range of naturally occurring plant nutrients and trace minerals essential to plant growth, health, and productivity. Kelp meal features naturally occurring trace minerals that are naturally chelated and acts as a nutritional supplement which releases its nutrients as it breaks down. An excellent source of organic matter composed primarily of carbohydrates such as alginic acid and mannitol which also act as effective chelating agents for micro-nutrients and contribute to building soil structure. 

The organic matter and soil conditioning properties in kelp meal are important in maintaining fertility and productivity of agricultural soils. Organic matter in the soil, and associated soil microflora, bacteria, and fungi, play an important role in soil fertility by making nutrients available for plant uptake.

Kelp meal acts as a soil conditioner by stimulating microbial activity, a process often disrupted by modern agricultural practices. The minerals released and humus colloids formed during the decomposition of kelp meal, result in the aggregation of soil particles and the retention of nutrients which might otherwise be leached from the soil.

Good soil structure provides improved aeration, water holding capacity and soil fertility, and makes soils less prone to erosion and erosive forces.

Our kelp meal comes from the waters off of Nova Scotia.
