Kelpak (500ml) is a plant growth regulator which improves root, shoot and flower developmentof all indoor and outdoor plants. 

Some of the benefits to using Kelpak organic seaweed concentrate / biostimulants:

  • Encourages growth of the primary root tip and enhances lateral root growth - The obvious benefits of this are increased water use efficiency and nutrient uptake, a more resilient plant in drought conditions and a well-anchored plant in wind or storm conditions. As the roots develop they also interact with the microbes found in surrounding soil that enable the free movement of minerals and nutrients into the root system. This has been scientifically proven in more than 600 field trials over the past 40 years.
  • Nutrient and water uptake - Through improved root development and vascular tissue growth, water, nutrients, sugar molecules, amino acids and hormones can be transported through the plant more efficiently, ensuring the crop remains hydrated and nourished, ultimately ensuring an improved crop yield. This also ensures that the crop benefits fully from your usual fertiliser program, as more nutrients are taken up by the roots and absorbed by the plant more efficiently.
  • Plant development - Plant cell division and leaf spread are improved, ensuring higher chlorophyll production resulting in a healthier plant.
  • Pollen tube developement - Recent scientic studies clearly indicate the dramatic effect Kelpak has on pollen grain germination and pollen tube elongation. The pollen grain germinates and the pollen tube develops much faster when treated with Kelpak. This ultimately results in improved fruit set and crop yield.
  • Fruit set - The number of fruits per tree is improved as the overall percentage of fertilised flowers is significantly increased, ensuring improved fruit set and healthy fruit development. Kelpak application also ensures a higher rate of fruit set in cold or drought conditions. These adverse conditions negatively affect fruit set and Kelpak application can help offset this.
  • Fruit and berry size - Kelpak helps in the development of the plant's root system and its vascular tissue which ultimately benefits fruit size through the provision of nutrients, minerals and essential compounds throughout the plant. Global trials and research indicate that the numerous natural bioactive compounds in Kelpak aid the plant's endogenous biosynthetic pathways that then lead to increased fruit sizing and uniformity.
  • Fruit colour - Fruit colour is an essential aspect of determining crop value. The active elements in Kelpak indirectly assist the plant's natural physiological processes, ensuring excellent fruit colour.
  • Fruit quality - Kelpak application improves firmness, shelf life and colour. By maintaining optimal nutrition and moisture levels in the plant before harvest, Kelpak application ensures that the fruit remains firm for longer periods on the shelf. Sugar levels are also improved as the additional nutrients deposit more starch which in turn is converted to sugars during ripening.
  • Resistance to abiotic stresses - Kelpak provides a healthy root system, stronger stems and foliar growth, ensuring your plant will be more tolerant to abiotic stresses. Kelpak application directly after a crop has experienced stress such as drought, frost, hail or flooding, also benefits the plant's recovery. After transplant and harvest, most crops will experience shock. Kelpak application before or after these events will significantly improve re-establishment and ensure healthy reserves during dormancy.
  • Prevents leaf burn - While calcium application is important in apple production, it often results in leaf scorch which will affect tree health and productivity. Kelpak acts as a buffer when applied together with calcium sprays, reducing leaf burn from these applications.
