Organic Kelp Meal 1-0-2
Versatile soil conditioner and trace nutrient cornucopia
In addition to its potash content and touch of nitrogen, kelp meal is an excellent source of essential micronutrients, enzymes and plant growth regulators. Kelp meal contains iron and manganese to help plants in the process of photosynthesis. Because kelp meal is low in cellulose, it breaks down quickly to contribute to the accumulation of humus in the soil, making it a great all-purpose soil conditioner for a wide range of applications. This product is OMRI-Listed for use in organic farming.
