Kelp Meal promotes growth of phototropic bacteria, conditions the soil, increases moisture retention and soil aeration, increasing the plants ability to uptake trace elements. Kelp meal can help control nematodes; attract earthworms to upper level of soil to promote aeration. It is also used as seed pretreatment, quickens germination, stimulates blossom and fruit development, produces healthier color, and can decrease fruit drop. Used frequently in hydroseeding, it binds topsoil surface, promotes germination and reduces soil moisture evaporation.
