Stella Maris Aquatic Plant Extract is derived exclusively from Ascophyllum nodosum kelp harvested from the nutrient-rich North Atlantic coastal waters of Nova Scotia. It is a source of naturally occurring major and minor nutrients, carbohydrates, amino acids and bioactive compounds that enhance crop vigor, nutrition and quality resulting in improvements in plant development and yield.
Years of research by scientists at Acadian as well as university studies have demonstrated many benefits:
Improves overall plant health – increased vigor, improved plant canopy, better photosynthetic capacity.
Enhances natural plant resistance to stresses – drought, salinity, temperature.
Enhances nutrient levels.
Increased production, fruit size, quality, delayed senescence, increased shelf life of perishable crops.
Stella Maris has been used for many years and has proven beneficial in a multitude of crops: blueberries, cherries, grapes, pome and stone fruits, tomato, peppers, nuts, cole crops, cucurbits, leaf and legume vegetables, ornamentals, root and tuber vegetables, turf, and many other crops.
