The seaweed, taken fresh from the sea, is chopped, dried
and milled into seaweed meal.
This approach minimises loss of active constituents or microbial
contamination problems associated with other manufacturer
processes that leave the seaweed
to dry naturally.
Maxicrop is now manufactured in modern facilities in Norway, by
our parent company Algea. However, the base extraction process still
follows the successful formula developed by Maxicrop in the UK where
macerated seaweed is hydrolysed in a pressure chamber, facilitating
the extraction of all the main beneficial substances in seaweed.
This process is known to enable maximum extraction of beneficial
compounds such as betaines, short-chain carbohydrates and sugars.
Over 50 years, the process has been refined to produce a highly
active, more complete base product than virtually all other extraction
Maxicrops base extract, manufactured by this process, is sold
in a variety of markets including organic sectors and gardening.
It is also produced in more concentrated forms, which are the base
for Maxicrop Triple a flag-ship product widely
used in agriculture, horticulture and turf management.
We also supply products with a range of additional nutrients, thereby
providing a complete fertiliser and bio-stimulant combination effect
for a range of situations.
Rigorous quality control checks are carried out to ensure product
