Seaweed Biostimulant Made From 100% Giant Kelp (Macrocystis Pyrifera)
Increasing Crop Productivity And Resilience
Every minute, we lose 30 soccer fields of soil, primarily due to intensive farming.
And about a third of the world’s soils are already degraded. If we continue at this rate, all top soils of the world will be degraded in only 60 years.
Unpredictable weather patterns further stress crops, decrease yields, and risk the world’s food security.
Conventional farming techniques and practices must change. New products and procedures must need to be widely adopted to reverse the damage and ensure ongoing productivity.
for the Planet
Our biostimulant helps crops cope with climatic stresses, increases productivity, restores soil health, and increases the crop’s nutritional content.
Stimplus+ also reduces the need for synthetic fertilisers, thus reducing the excess nutrient runoff that finds its way back into the coastal oceans disrupting coastal ecosystems and increasing ocean acidification, dead zones, and algal blooms.
for the Farmer
Top 3 Benefits for Crops
1. Improves resistance to abiotic stress
Droughts, floods, early frost, excessive heat, cold, or salinity are some of the abiotic stressors responsible for 50-70% of the yield losses farmers report.
These stress factors can alter the internal processes of plants, making them more susceptible to pathogens and pests, reducing productivity, growth, and survival rate.
Early trial results show that treating crops with Stimplus+ is an effective way to improve:
- Tolerance to stress in adverse growing conditions
- Plant establishment

2. Improves Soil Health
Soil health is essential to sustainable and productive agriculture.
Synthetic fertilisers are widely used in agricultural practices today but are a double-edged sword. While they boost plant growth and make up for soil’s nutrient deficiency by injecting large amounts of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus, they disrupt the activity of microorganisms in the soil and the balance of plant nutrient uptake.
Excessive fertiliser use leads to soil toxicity, decreased soil organic matter and fertility and surface and groundwater contamination, which can cause significant harm to the environment and human health.
Stimplus+ restores and maintains agricultural soil health and increases its fertility while increasing the biodiversity and activity of soil microorganisms essential to crop health. It contributes to the production of organic products while leaving no chemical residues. Long-term harm to the soil is decreased because of the reduced need for synthetic and chemical fertilisers.
3. Increases Nutrient Uptake
Nutrient uptake is the mechanism plants use to absorb nutrients essential for their growth and is vital to healthy and efficient plant development. The nutritional content of fruit and vegetables is declining because of the need for more available nutrients in the soil. Efficient nutrient uptake contributes to stronger crops that can resist environmental stress.
Biostimulants naturally stimulate the plant’s physiology to increase the use of available essential nutrients. These nutrients positively affect the plant’s metabolism, increasing fruit size, weight, colour, and firmness with more uniformity.
They do this by stimulating root growth, creating a more robust root system, and increasing nutrient uptake efficiency, ensuring that plants can absorb nutrients when needed, despite a lower availability.
- increase micronutrients and macronutrients in the leaves
- increase plant and grain concentration of nutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, P)
- increase in nutrient uptake, growth, and root size
