DRIKELP® is sundried Ecklonia maxima collected from the shoreline and milled to a 2-3mm dried flake. Commonly known as brown seaweed, it is gathered on the West Coast of South Africa after being fed by the nutrient rich cold Benguela current that runs north from the Antarctic.
Ecklonia Maxima contains micro, and macro nutrients, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). The full range of amino acids. Natural growth hormones, auxins and cytokinins which are present, are easily taken up by land plants.
When applied to the soil DRIKELP® builds up and over time improves the quality and structure of the soil as it breaks down. As this product decomposes vitamins, plant hormones and a broad spectrum of macro and micro-nutrients are released; these nutrients release slowly and are long lasting plant food that promotes soil health.
