Dr. Maynard Murray's research on the use of sea minerals as an organic fertilizer in horticulture spanned more than four decades.
He found that plants grown with sea minerals fertilizer benefited in numerous ways, from increased yields and more nutritious food to healthier, pest-resistant/stress-tolerant plants.
This has become one of my favourite liquid organic fertilizers, perhaps even more than the ever-present liquid kelp fertilizer. The pale colour and lack of odour may not be as impressive, but the results are remarkable.
This particular product is called Sea-Crop. It's a soil and plant stimulant containing over 80 natural source minerals and active organic substances from deep sea Pacific Ocean water. Many gallons of seawater are processed to produce a single gallon of Sea-Crop.
This brand is one of the most bioactive - and yet well priced - of the sea mineral fertilizer products on the market. It also has ORMUS properties.
Sea-Crop is mixed with water in a watering can, sprayer, or irrigation system. It is best applied early in the morning, while evening would be the second choice. Store the product away from direct sunlight.
When applied to soil, it is best if the soil is moist before and then watered again briefly after. The product is very concentrated, and should be diluted to at least 1:50 water for soil applications and 1:100 water for foliar applications. It can be applied monthly or as little as once a year.
In order to receive maximum benefit from the sea minerals, it should be applied separately from liquid fish fertilizer (I used to always use them together, but not anymore). You can still apply them one right after the other, just not mixed together in the same container. It is a bit more work, but I still do it, if only 2 or 3 times a year.
