SEA PLANT FOLIAR FEED & MEAL
AMENITY TURF CARE
ALGIFOL & NUTRIDIP
(The Proven Amenity Sea Plant Products)
Sea plant products are effective and environmentally friendly
The effectiveness of organic sea plant products has to be
reviewed in a sensible manner. Quality and consistency
values must be independently appraised.
Basic manufacturing criteria
Simply stated it is as follows: -
- Organic sea products must
be manufactured from selected sea plant material (seaweed).
- These materials must be stored in prime condition prior
to processing (not left drying in the sun).
- Processing must be designed not to damage the biological
components of the sea plants with either excessive
heat or damaging chemical treatments.
- Use competent experienced people of integrity.
If the above manufacturing criteria
are adhered to then, and only then, will the potency of the
Otherwise the effectiveness of the final turf care product
will be greatly reduced.
Products manufactured using the foregoing parameters can
release to turf care the maximum biological benefit of
natural plant hormones etc.
Plant hormone efficiency offers a fair index of the wider
range of bio-benefits that can be imparted to green plants
when sea plant extracts are used.
Bearing in mind that these bioactive factors are short-lived
within the plant - three weeks approximately - routine low
level application is the norm at high season.
Why use sea plant extracts
Sea plant extracts are good for turf care because: -
induce better plant metabolism which is evidenced in
better root development and healthier green tops plus improved
resistance to infection and stress, etc.
- Sea plant extracts
are complex bioactivators that have been well proven
to perform - A fine subject for a PhD. thesis
if one wishes to examine the details.
- The bioactivity of AlGIFOL & NUTRIDIP have
been well proven in the commercial field and in University
over many years.
- These products can be applied to golf greens
and will contribute greatly to invigorating good green
health and may be co-applied
to boost plant health with other chemical regimes.
The use of sea plant extracts
Inducing good healthy green grass complies with the human
adage - 'feed a cold to starve a fever'. Extracts raise
the immune levels of the plant.
Modern greens are highly stressed in order to achieve the
required playing specifications and therefore they are very
susceptible to a wide range of infections and infestations.
Application rates for mown grass areas
It is known that routine applications of ALGIFOL at 2 - 5
cc. per 10m2 at 3 - 4 weekly intervals will suppress nematode
multiplication as well as assist with other stress related
infections and physical problems (drought and mowing).
NUTRIDIP can be applied at 10 - 15 grms. per m2 at the time
of thatch coring and will have a direct input on root development
and therefore will improve the green herbage stress level.
