Farming with Renewable Resources

ESTABLISH is formulated to aid in overall plant health. ESTABLISH may be applied alone or with fertilizers or pesticides. ESTABLISH is compatible with most pesticides and fertilizers. However, a compatibility test is recommended if the desired combination has not been used in the past.


ESTABLISH is a formulation of ascophylum Nodosum, a 100% cold processed Norwegian seaweed and liquid humates.

Norwegian seaweed is a natural storehouse of naturally occurring major and minor nutrients, carbohydrates, amino acids and plant growth promoting substances which enhance crop yields, quality and plant vigor.

Liquid humate is not a plant food, but it does help plants utilize the nutrients which are available in the soil. It affects the release of plant nutrients especially nitrogen, in the soil through slow decomposition of organisms. Liquid humate stimulates plant enzymes and acts as an organic catalyst. It is rich in organic and mineral substances essential for plant growth.

Ascophylum Nodosum is an extract of kelp plants and contains the vitamins, amino acids and other cellular components extracted from the kelp, along with cytokinins.

When used with a good fertility program, ESTABLISH helps crops better utilize the available nutrients, even in poor soils and in times of drought.
