    OMEX Seastar-F  organic growth stimulant, containing concentrated seaweed extract solution.  Applications result in increased root growth and yield in a wide range of crops.

    Importance of Alginates:

    • Alginates act as an effective physical wetting agent for foliar applications
    • Increase the cellular permeability of crop leaves
    • Increase the assimilation of co-applied pesticides
    • Increase the assimilation of co-applied trace elements
    • Stimulate the root system and vegetative development
    • Improve the level of starch
    • Play a role in the development of colouring
    • Activate the phenolic pathways ethylene and the salicylic acid for a better regulation of crop stress

    Oligosaccharides, hormones and amino acids:

    • Stimulate plant defences
    • Increase photosynthesis.
    • Reduce abiotic stresses – leading to:
    • Increased flowering and fruit set
    • Earlier and more even crop maturity
    • Improved utilisation of soil-supplied and applied nutrition.
    • Increased sugar levels in fruits.
    • Improved quality of the end product.


    • A polysaccharide of glucose which develops the biosynthesis of flavonoids (colouring system)
    • Stimulates the production of phytoalexins which activate the natural defences
    • Develops the biosynthesis of phenolic compounds


    • A sugar alcohol which works as an osmoregulator
    • Improves tolerance of cold
    • Improves the level of proteins
    • Improves flowering
    • Functions as a crop defence elicitor
    • Plays a major role in cellular detoxification
    • Delays the senescence of cells and reduces the production of ethylene

    Immature plant seedling and transplants are at risk of damage from stress conditions caused by high temperatures, soil conditions, moisture availability and disease.




    Biostimulants promote enhanced germination and root development, leading to increased vigour and greater stress and disease resistance.  Applications of OMEX Seastar-F result in increased root growth and yield in a wide range of crops.
