A growth stimulant which results in increased root growth and yield in a wide range of crops
Contains : Naturally occuring growth stimulants.
Crops: Most agricultural and horticultural crops including potatoes, cereals, oilseed rape, pulses, grassland, suagr beet, vegetables, bulbs and glasshouse crops.
Use: To enhance root growth which improves both yield and quality. Kelpak helps plants overcome periods of stress caused, for example, by drought, water logging or root damage.
Pack Size: 5 and 25 litres.
Kelpak - Function
Kelpak is a kelp concentrate which is manufactured using a unique cell-burst process without heat, chemical digestion or dehydration. This patented process ensures maximum retention of the growth stimulant found in the kelp. Kelpak also contains a wide range of nutrients, vitamins and amino acids.
|Kelpak is manufactured using a unique cell-burst process without heat.
Why Use Kelpak?
Kelpak is unique. It differs from all other seaweed products available today in that it is a concentrate produced using a unique cold process which avoids damaging the natural growth stimulants.
||Over 300 independent trials and extensive university research have demonstrated the benefits of Kelpak in producing exceptional root growth followed by healthy top growth. |
Typical Analysis of Kelpak (per litre)
Potatoes: Growers routinely apply Kelpak to encourage vigorous root growth improving the uptake of nutrients and resisting stress, especially that caused by Potato Cyst Nematode.
Cereals: Early applications of Kelpak can encourage rooting thus improving the uptake of nutrients and resisting stress. Late applications of Kelpak can improve the protein content of milling wheat which is particularly important in environmentally sensitive areas.
||2 - 5 leaf stage
1.5 - 2
|Increases tillering, root growth, protects against stress. An optional 2nd application may be made 3-6 weeks later|
||Approx 3 weeks before harvest
|Apply with Hypro or Protein Plus to improve Hagberg falling Number and protein|
|Oilseed Rape, Pulses
||As soon as spring growth is evident
|Promotes root growth, protects against stress|
||Early spring. Repeat mid-summer or at re-tillering
|Promotes vigorous spring growth, reduces die-back in late summer, aids recovery after grazing/cutting, helps establishment of new leys.|
||2 weeks after emergence
|Promotes root growth, protects against stress. Improves yield of both saleable ware and seed. Reduces the impact if PCN|
||4 - 8 leaf stage
|Promotes root growth, protects against stress, improves overall yield. May have a beneficial effect on sugar content|
||1 - 2 weeks after trasnplant
|Repeat application may be made 14-21 days later to stimulate growth and improve shelf life|
||2 - 5 leaf stage
|Increase root growth, protects against stress. An optional 2nd application may be made 3-6 weeks later|
Organic Crops - Kelpomex
For growers of certified organic crops there is a special formulation called Kelpomex with full organic approval. Usage rates and other details are the same as Kelpak. Please contact Omex for further information.
