Heat stress? Not with brown algae Algacifo 3000!

Heat stress? Not with brown algae Algacifo 3000!

The use of algae in agriculture dates back to ancient times, but even today there is uncertainty about the use of this natural resource, able to improve soil fertility and bring enormous benefits to crops against temperature and water changes.

For many crops, including vines, the summer period represents the time of maximum energy consumption. Plants in summer, in addition to having to cope with high temperatures, must complete the production cycle. In this delicate moment, avoiding that the plant undergoes stress or slowdowns in its metabolism, means increasing production and preserving the plants in the best possible way.

The brown algae of the Atlantic Ocean are characterized by the naturalness and purity of the waters in which they grow, and bring numerous benefits in agriculture.

What algae are used in agriculture?

Obviously, not all algae existing in the sea can be used in agriculture. Some can be dangerous because they are toxic to the plant, others would not bring any benefit. In addition to this, the collected algae must be treated and only the elements useful to meet the needs of the plant must be extracted. For this reason, the use of brown algae is recommended in agriculture.

In fact, brown algae from the Atlantic Ocean can counteract the negative effects of climate and pests, supporting plants in delicate phases such as flowering, fruit ripening and post-harvest. They are also a valuable help to better prepare for the following season in a sustainable way both for the environment and for the income statement of the farm.

What are the practical advantages of using agricultural algae?

Algae products increase the resistance of plants to environmental stress and some of them can also be used in organic farming. One of the bioactivators based on brown algae that can also be used in organic farming is Algacifo 3000.

Algacifo 3000 is the ideal biostimulant to improve productivity and mitigate stress due to drought and high temperatures. Ideal for the summer, this fertilizer based on seaweed brings the following benefits to crops:

  • Increased resistance to environmental stress and water imbalances.
  • Stimulation of chlorophyll photosynthesis with increase in leaf surface and production.
  • Reduction of fruit drop.
  • Improvement of root development in the early stages resulting in greater nutrient absorption capacity.
  • Reduces susceptibility to microdeficiencies.
  • Final productions with high organoleptic characteristics (color, sugars, etc.), greater specific weight, longer shelf life.
  • Increase in the effectiveness of phytosanitary treatments.

Why prefer Algacifo 3000 to other algae products? ALGACIFO 3000 is an innovative fertilizer product totally plant-based, created thanks to a production process that allows to amplify the effectiveness of the natural compounds contained in the basic organic matrices. This feature also makes it ideal for organic farming.

The main source comes from the Brown Marine Algae (Ascophyllum nodosum) native to the rocky bottoms in the North Seas, rich in nutrients, vitamins, polysaccharides, natural promoters. The other organic component is characterized by a plant fraction that provides yeasts, enzymes, proteins, oligosaccharides, nucleic acids, ATP.

For these specific properties ALGACIFO 3000, administered during the crop cycle, allows to obtain high and superior quality productions, even in adverse weather conditions.
