Amino Kelp

Product Description and Characteristics

A microbial digested blend of amino acids, kelp and macro/micro nutrients.

AminoKelp is a liquid fertiliser that can be applied as both soil fertiliser and to the plant leaves through fertigation. It incorporates the benefits of two GrowGreen products, AminoElite™ and Microbe Plus® Kelp.

Plants will rapidly absorb these nutrients in a noticeably shorter time than with conventional fertilisers. AminoKelp can be applied as either a foliar, down the line at planting or through fertigation. AminoElite™ is a soil and foliar fertiliser which is produced after the microbial digestion of deep sea fish emulsion and crustaceans.  This fertiliser has a unique profile and concentration of amino acids, the building block of the proteins and hence essential for plant growth.

On the other hand Microbe Plus® Kelp is a liquid fertiliser which incorporates two different seaweed species that have been microbially digested. It also incorporates plant nutrients and beneficial fungi and bacteria. The seaweed in Microbe Plus® Kelp are, loaded with different plant hormones and biostimulants, the two chosen species have been thoroughly selected in order to provide the product with a full range of plant hormones.

Thus AminoKelp will supply the plant with amino acids, the products of the seaweed digestion and a complete spectrum of plant macro and micro nutrients. The combination of these three features will enhance plant growth with greater vigour and eventually will lead in an increase of yield and quality.



  • AminoKelp has been designed to be used in all the different types of crops as it helps plants to build resilience and overall vigour. It also helps the crop to deal with both biotic and abiotic stress e.g. insect attack, foliar and root disease, drought, frost, heat sunburn etc.
  • AminoKelp will help to reduce the inconvenient of a “hidden hungry” as it incorporates essential trace elements.
  • As the product incorporates the benefits of AminoElite™ and Microbe Plus® Kelp, AminoKelp simplifies field application with a remarkable cost reduction
  • By providing these benefits the plant is capable of growing to its genetic potential.

AminoKelp can be mixed and applied with most commonly used pesticides, however we strongly recommend checking labels for compatibility as well as pre testing in a small area prior to widespread application. AminoKelp is rainfast in 15 minutes. We suggest not applying if rain is expected shortly after application.

How GrowGreen Fertilizers help Plants against Drought

Drought is a devastating natural hazard, due to the negative effects of the climatic change, the percentage of the planet affected by drought has more than doubled in the last 40 years (FAO). Water deficit in plants is considered as one of the major abiotic stresses (Jaleel et al., 2009). Plants exposed to severe drought
