Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed extract.
Free amino acids obtained by acid hydrolysis of proteins of vegetable origin.
Qualitative aminogram: Ala, Arg, Asp, Glu, Gly, His, Ile, Leu, Lys, Met, Phe, Pro, Ser, Thr, Trp, Tyr, Val.
Liquid NPK 1-1-8 fertiliser with a high content of seaweed extracts and free amino acids. Its use is recommended to promote rooting after transplantation as well as to help plants to better tolerate soil pathogenic fungi and nematodes.
Seaweed extracts provide several beneficial substances for plants:
- Alginic acid: polysaccharidde which forms a polymer able to retain great amounts of water in soil.
- Mannitol: sugar alcohol with antioxidant properties, with osmotic activity that alleviates salt stress and with sugar transportation ability ithin the plant.
- Natural hormones: the ratio of auxin to cytokinin-like substances contribute to the proper growth, and development of flowers and fruits.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and thus, are essential at every developmental stage. Additionally, they play a very important role during stress episodes: some of them act as osmolytes while other amino acids can regulate ion transport, stomata opening and closing, gene expression, redox homeostasis and help in detoxifying when there is a high concentration of heavy metals in soils.

Apply 2-4 times, beginning at transplantation. It is recommended to wait 7 days between each application. The doses to be used per application are as follows:
|Horticultural, citrus and fruit trees||6-8 l/ha|
|Tree nurseries||0.5-1 ml/pot|
Note: These recommendations are general and indicative, and must be adapted by a qualified technician based on agronomic and edaphoclimatic factors.
