Brewing quality products since 1996 AgriSea NZ Ltd is a multi-award winning sustainable New Zealand company, family owned and operated. The company produces Seaweed Soil, Foliar, Turf, Pasture and Animal Health concentrates for Agriculture and Horticulture.
The New Zealand native seaweed species (ecklonia radiata) is batch-brewed with specially selected essential herbs for up to 90 days. The natural brewing process eliminates the use of processing with heat, chemicals, freezing or dehydration that might ‘denature’ the sensitive nutrient balance, allowing the natural growth stimulants and micro-nutrients to be released in an active form to enhance soil and plant health. AgriSea’s natural brewing methods are unique for commercial production.
Seaweed is one of the most complex materials known to man and our New Zealand native seaweed, Ecklonia Radiata, has a vast range of minerals, trace elements, naturally occurring antibodies that are vital for animal health including zinc, iodine, cobalt, copper and sodium.
AgriSea Pasture Nutrition is manufactured from a renewable New Zealand seaweed species (Ecklonia Radiata) which is believed to be the most beneficial for the land.
This product is batch-brewed naturally with selected herbs for a period of 50 days. Seaweed is a highly complex material and typically contains over 60 minerals and elements, 12 vitamins, 21 amino acids, simple and complex carbohydrates. There are significant levels of important micronutrients essential for plant and animal health in seaweed. AgriSea’s natural brewing process is unique, and does not use heat, chemicals, freezing or dehydration to ensure the sensitive natural hormones and micronutrients are not ‘de-natured’ during the process. The plant hormones – auxins, gibberellins and cytokinins are natural growth stimulants that assist with:
a) increased root mass production, reducing the impact of drought and accelerating nutrient uptake
b) develops a dense high quality sward without the rankness that nitrogen provides.
Manufactured from a sustainable NZ resource this product is hand brewed in small batches over 90 days. A mixture of herbs is added to provide a balanced ‘tonic’ for the benefit of soil dwelling organisms, as well as the root systems. Plants do not live by NPK alone –micronutrients are essential for plant growth and development. Seaweed, being a rich source of available micronutrients, supplements and compliments NPK. AgriSea Soil Conditioner is excellent at helping to release nutrients previously unavailable for plant use.
It is also a very good compost starter and activator. “Turf grass trials conducted at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute found that seaweed applications to the soil increased root mass from 67% to 175% when compared to the untreated plots”.
Many leading New Zealand dairy farmers report significant improvements in their herd reproductive performance with AgriSea Animal Nutrition. We’ve noted hugely improved submission and conception rates. We’ve also noted significantly lowered rates of empties, abortions, stillborns and retained foetal membranes (RFM’s).
