Research has shown that to get the best results, Maxicrop needs
to be applied in low doses but at regular intervals throughout the
periods of active plant growth.
This "Little & Often" application approach keeps the
plants and, where possible, immediate soil environment, 'topped-up'
with all the beneficial components of our seaweed extracts.
This helps ensure that a suppressive soil is built up around the
plants roots. It also strengthens the natural resistance mechanisms
of the plants themselves, thereby leading to improved plant health
and productivity. Research has shown that plants that are regularly
exposed to low levels of our seaweed extracts establish bigger and
deeper roots and are faster growing.
They also develop bigger and greener shoots that are more resistant
to stresses from pests, diseases and adverse weather conditions,
thus allowing the plants to realise more of their yield and quality
To achieve faster crop establishment our seaweed extracts must be
applied to the soil or young plants around the roots. Hydroponics,
or drenching roots every week via a fertigation or some such other
system, provides excellent results.
Once plants are well established, regular applications to the foliage
should commence. These will improve the plant's natural resistance
mechanisms making them better able to fight off foliar diseases
especially if they are applied along with a fungicide - sap-sucking
insect attacks and to combat the negative effects of adverse weather.
Applications to the foliage and roots will also enable plants to
protect and maintain their photosynthetic apparatus during periods
of stress allowing for better light utilisation and so providing
greater energy for growth and productivity.
