TourTurf® APS Algae Plus Seaweed
Concentrated liquid seaweed extract from organic Ascophyllum nodosum to use as a fertiliser and soil improver.
TourTurf® APS Algae Plus Seaweed is a liquid concentration of seaweed extract, with a 30 % dry matter content. It retains a high natural content of macro and micronutrients, vitamins, plant hormones, amino acids, and carbohydrates, which are all highly beneficial to turf health and quality.
The product is manufactured using a chemical-free extraction process from the slow growing, brown Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed plant, after it has been sustainably harvested from sheltered, rocky shores and pristine waters of the Scottish North Atlantic coast. It is an organic and certified 100 % pure cold-pressed seaweed extract.
TourTurf® APS Algae Plus Seaweed has two functions; firstly, as a biofertiliser due to the wide range of plant nutrient content and secondly; as a highly effective, natural growth biostimulant for plants and turf. Keeps plants healthy.
Our independent analysis of our Ascophyllum nodosum material reveals that it contains a wide range of nutrients, minerals and vitamins, together with carbohydrates comprising many types of sugars, fulvic acids, plant hormones and other active components. Although often required in small amounts, seaweed contains many elements often missing in otherwise productive growing conditions.
For example, a lack of iodine is a recognised to be a problem for many soils, however our Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed is naturally high in iodine and other trace elements, all important for both high functioning soils and plant nutrition.
