Kelpman Specialty Fertilizer is made from the fast-growing tips of the Giant Pacific Kelp Plant, known by the botanical term macrocystis integrifolia. To protect and preserve the kelp bed long-term, this species of kelp is hand-harvested by our divers from the cold, pristine and secluded waters of coastal British Columbia. This giant kelp is the fastest growing plant known, growing up to 3 feet per day! Harvesting takes place in late spring and again in early fall (to protect indigenous species). Only the actively growing portion of the plant-the top 2 to 4 meters-is selected.
The manufacturing process is simple and distinctive. The harvested kelp plant is brought to the processing plant where it is power-washed with fresh water. Then the kelp is liquified by a specialized cold process which mechanically reduces the plant to a potent liquid that is compatible with any commercial spray or applicator equipment. Kelpman Liquid Kelp retains all of the kelp’s natural properties and is in no way chemically altered.
