Aggrand Natural Kelp


Aggrand Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash

According to the Aggrand website:

An Important Part of Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition

? Provides increased heat, cold and drought tolerance

? Decreases susceptibility to insect attack and infection

? Aids in early plant growth and development

? Promotes early ripening

? Improves quality and extends shelf-life of fruits and vegetables

? Aids in seed formation

? Convenient liquid concentrate

? Increases nitrogen use efficiency Butterfly

? Increases nitrogen fixation in legumes

Potassium is considered the "universal helper"

AGGRAND 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 enhances heat, drought and cold tolerance.

AGGRAND 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.

Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash contains no chloride.

It 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.

Sufficient Sulfur produces high quality crops.

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 activity.

AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is the key to overall plant health, quality, increased marketability, high yields and increased stress tolerance.
