SM6®

SM6® is a potent aqueous extract of several kelp genera including Ascophyllum, Laminara and Durvillea. SM6 is rich in betaines a natural osmolite that protects cells against osmotic stresses including drought, salinity and temperature extremes.

A renewable resource, seaweed is cut by hand, leaving an 8 inch stalk for re-growth. Initial processing is carried out in Ireland by Arramara Teo. 85% is used to make alginate, an ingredient in many food products for human consumption. Seaweed is washed, pre-cut, dried, milled and graded.

  • More than 60 elements identified in seaweed, together with:
  • Auxins, relatively short lived
  • Gibberellins, also short lived
  • Cytokinins
  • Betaines, modified amino acids giving “cytokinin like” response and stress tolerance
  • Alginates and various sugars

Photon 500 SG

PHOTON 500 SG is a 500g/kg water soluble granule which is a blend of plant derived dicarboxylic acids. PHOTON 500 SG reduces the impact of stress, such as excess light,heat, drought, chilling and other environmental conditions that can negatively impact on crop growth. It manipulates the plants stress sensors so it can react more quickly and effectively to stress events.

Application rate
  • Vegetables: 20 g/ha – Apply at transplant and then from commencement of flowering through to harvest at 14-21 day intervals.
  • Table Grapes, Wine Grapes: *4 g/100L or *40 g/1000L – Apply from flowering through to harvest at 14-21 day intervals. *NB: maximum of 20g/ha
  • Tree crops: 4 g/100L or 40 g/1000L – Apply from flowering through to harvest at 14-21 day intervals
  • Broadacre, Row Crops: 40 g/ha – Apply as required to combat strategic stress events e.g. Grain / ear initiation, flowering and filling

Container size
  • 500gm pack
