Fitting Seasol into Asparagus production

  • Regular application (every 2-4 weeks) during the growing season as a general plant tonic can be used to enhance productivity.
  • Targeted application at specific growth stages can be used to provide increased resistance to the impacts of cold or heat.
  • Application with or immediately after any fertiliser application can be used to aid nutrient uptake and utilisation.
  • Post-harvest applications can be used to help plants store nutrients and energy reserves for the following season.

Production benefits in detail:

The use of Seasol products results in significant improvement of both plant health and crop development resulting in:

  • Improved plant establishment. By stimulating root growth needed for rapid establishment after planting.
  • Drought/heat tolerance. Seasol products significantly increases drought tolerance by increasing the innate capacity of plants to resist water loss.
  • Cold tolerance. The same mechanism that protects against drought stress also provides significant frost protection by reducing the temperature at which cells freeze.
  • Disease resistance. It has been consistently reported that Seasol products treated plants demonstrate reduced incidence and severity of various disease impacts.
  • Increased microbial activity. Seasol products are a food source for beneficial microbes, increasing their number and diversity.
