AfriKelp® LG-1

is a biostimulant cocktail extracted from the freshly harvested South African giant brown seaweed Ecklonia maxima. The naturally occurring biostimulants – mainly

auxin and cytokinin

– are present in a special ratio of high auxin and low cytokinin that stimulate the green plant by disturbing that plant’s own biostimulant balance.

The

auxin

permeates down to the roots, and causes the roots to stimulate cell division and growth, as well as stimulating the plant to produce the cytokinin necessary to get back into balance. The cytokinin then moves in the opposite direction, viz to the leaves, and initiates the growth above the soil.

AfriKelp® LG-1

thus stimulates the plant to produce more biostimulants to put it into balance again.

The end result means more roots which equals a stronger plant, that can take up more available nutrients and can defend itself much better against natural predators, resulting in higher yield and quality crops.
