Maxicrop Original


A pure seaweed extract containing 8% (W/W) soluble seaweed solids including a wide range of plant growth stimulants and trace elements.

Maxicrop Original is approved for organic growing by the Soil Association and Guild of Conservation Grade Producers

Organic Crops
Any natural product that can relieve the effects of plant stress during critical periods of growth will have an obvious role to play in organic crop production.

For this reason, Maxicrop is widely used by organic fruit, vegetable and salad crop producers as a means of resisting problems due to pest and disease attack and minimising environmental stresses.

Regular Use is the Key

Early on in the growth of a crop, Maxicrop helps stimulate soil microbial activity, turning over any plant residues and rendering nutrients more readily available. It could also reduce nematode damage.

This in turn encourages healthier rooting and better crop establishment with minimal checks in growth or transplant shock.

During the season, little and often applications, will maintain high leaf chlorophyll levels, ensuring maximum utilisation of available radiation and strong growth.

Regular applications will also maintain a high stress-resistance threshold, helping the plant’s internal defence mechanism keep pests and diseases at bay.

Towards the end of the season, Maxicrop helps retain green leaf retention and productive growth, thereby maximising yield potentials and improving crop quality.

Little and Often

Research has shown that to get the best results, Maxicrop needs to be applied in low doses but at regular intervals throughout the periods of active plant growth.

This "Little & Often" application approach keeps the plants and, where possible, immediate soil environment, 'topped-up' with all the beneficial components of our seaweed extracts.

This helps ensure that a suppressive soil is built up around the plants roots. It also strengthens the natural resistance mechanisms of the plants themselves, thereby leading to improved plant health and productivity. Research has shown that plants that are regularly exposed to low levels of our seaweed extracts establish bigger and deeper roots and are faster growing.

They also develop bigger and greener shoots that are more resistant to stresses from pests, diseases and adverse weather conditions, thus allowing the plants to realise more of their yield and quality potential.

Soil & Leaf


To achieve faster crop establishment our seaweed extracts must be applied to the soil or young plants around the roots. Hydroponics, or drenching roots every week via a fertigation or some such other system, provides excellent results.

Once plants are well established, regular applications to the foliage should commence. These will improve the plant's natural resistance mechanisms making them better able to fight off foliar diseases – especially if they are applied along with a fungicide - sap-sucking insect attacks and to combat the negative effects of adverse weather.

Applications to the foliage and roots will also enable plants to protect and maintain their photosynthetic apparatus during periods of stress allowing for better light utilisation and so providing greater energy for growth and productivity.
