Algae are photosynthesising organisms that live in water or in very wet environments. In order to withstand the extreme conditions of the habitat in which they live, they have developed a series of natural defences (plant hormones), a characteristic that makes algae important contributors to the search for agricultural optimisation. The extraction method is key to maintaining initial seaweed qualities, since certain plant hormones, such as auxins, are rather unstable molecules and will be greatly affected depending on the chosen method.
Kaliter® Cuaje is a biostimulant produced from alga Ecklonia maxima, (originating from the Atlantic coast of South Africa) and boron. It favours cell division and the formation of cell walls and proteins. As a result of its cold micronisation process, it better conserves its content in carbohydrates (mannitol, alginic acid, laminarin and others), amino acids (glutamic acid, alanine, phenylalanine, glycine, proline, lysine, etc.) and plant hormones (cytokinins, auxins, etc.), with their biostimulant properties remaining intact.
Kaliter® Cuaje provides the following advantages:
- Increase in adventitious rooting and apical dominance induction.
- Enhances nutrient absorption.
- Optimisation of floral development.
- Increased setting and cell expansion.
- Improved plant resistance to different stressful situations.
