When & Why Do I Need A Calcified Seaweed Substitute?
Maxicrops Cal-Sea-Feed is a sustainanable substitute for calcium seaweed. Maxicrop Cal-Sea-Feed is approved by the soil association for use in organic growing.
The calcium in cal-sea-feed is used to reduce the PH or acidity of acid soils. When the PH level of soil falls below 6.0 the availability of important nutrients like phosphorous, potassium, calcium and magnesium decreases.
The availability of metallic micronutrients like zinc, manganese, copper and iron increases but if the levels are allowed to drop below 5.5 they may occur in concentrations which are actually toxic to plants.
Using Maxicrops calcified seaweed substitute has the same effect as adding lime to reduce the acidity of garden soil with the added advantage of adding the broad range of beneficial trace elements found in seaweed. Trace elements will increase the microbial activity in the soil which in turn makes more nutrients available to the roots of your plants and thus stronger healthier plants.
Cal-sea-feed is a blend of sustainably harvested dried seaweed and natural calcium carbonate. Soil structure is improved and acid soils are effectively neutralised.
