Crop Aid Seed liquid solution is formulated to activate bacteria and fungi around the seed and enhance germination and vigor. It is also formulated to supplement and maximize a standard fertilizer program.
Q1. How is it Applied?
Crop Aid Seed liquid solution is applied directly onto seeds. Crop Aid Seed is safe to mix with most inoculants, fungicides and insecticides. It should be applied at a rate of 100 ml/ bushel. Water may be added if necessary to achieve optimal seed coverage and maximize plant health.
Q2. When Should I Apply?
Crop Aid Seed can be applied to the seed prior to seeding.
Q3. What's in the Solution?
Crop Aid Seed contains a unique blend of Lignin extract and kelp extract. It also contains other macro and micronutrients including:
Q4. Container Size

- 500L totes and 1000L totes
What is the Rhizosphere?
The rhizosphere is an envelope of soil surrounding the individual rootlets. It’s also where the tiny bacteria and fungi microorganisms live and form symbiotic relationships – ensuring the plant thrives. In the rhizophere, the kelp solution both keeps the plant well-fed, while also stimulating the life in the immediate vicinity. This ensures that the additional nutrients are better absorbed and stored in a readily available form that the plant can access.
What is lignin and why is it beneficial when applied to the soil?
High source of carbon and nitrogen.
Encourages the activation and growth of beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
Acts as a fertilizer catalyst reducing the loss and soil tie up of soil-applied fertilizers.
Increases fertility of soil.
Helps to loosen and aerate the soil and improves moisture holding capacity of the soil.
Aids in building up the plants defences against disease and pests.
Helps to reduce the population of soil born pathogens.
Strong chelate ability allowing the minerals to be absorbed by plant roots.
Increases plant growth by stimulating life in the rhizosphere.
Increases plant health.
Increase yield & seed quality.
Why we use kelp
For centuries, farmers have known the value of kelp. Kelp is able to extract many inorganic substances available in the ocean and convert these inorganic compounds into organic compounds, making kelp solution an outstanding source of these compounds.
To produce a good crop, you must prepare the soil to nurture the millions of tiny feeding roots.
Kelp solution both feeds plants and enriches the soil rhizophere with a wide variety of nutrients, conditioners and growth stimulants. The elements that kelp extracts provide are known to promote strong plants and healthy growth. They also naturally increase plants’ resistance and tolerance to all kinds of stressful conditions.
Improve crop quality with kelp solution
Increases in the health of plants, and improved crop quality, can both be achieved through the use of kelp solution. These claims have been proven to be true by commercial kelp product users. Additionally, research shows more benefits when kelp products are used including:
Faster seed germination.
Increased growth of new plants started from cuttings and seeds.
Healthier, more uniform, and stronger plant growth.
Increased stress tolerance.
A better quality harvest and safer storage with less waste.
The increased bioavailability of other nutrients usually trapped in the soil.
Kelp extracts act as bio stimulants of plant growth and development. We include kelp extracts in our Crop Aid Soil and Crop Aid Seed nutrition solutions to promote stronger and healthier crops.
Why is kelp beneficial?
Promotes growth of beneficial soil microbes and boosts microbial activity.
Increases nutrient uptake by roots.
Improves soil structure and aeration of soil.
Acts as a bio stimulant, and enhances seed germ and vigor.
Acts as a chelator and improves utilization of minerals.
Increases nutrient availability to crops.
Increases plants resistance to stressful conditions including disease, insects and other stressors.
Increases plant growth, increases yield, increases flower set, increases seed production, improves propagation of seedlings and cuttings, and increases crop quality.
