Kelp meal is an organic, non-pollutant resource that adds valuable micronutrients, natural growth hormones and vitamins that help increase yields, improve soil structure, reduce plant stress from drought, and increase frost tolerance.
Kelp meal can be incorporated into potting soils, seed and transplant beds, as well as composting material and even used in teas or foliar spray.
Kelp meal is also used to enhance the flexibility and sheen of the skin and coat in dogs, cats, and horses.
