SEAMELBARRICADE Toughens up plants

SeaMelBarricade contains copper that is vital for lignification of epidermal cell walls. These cells form the physical barricade to wounds and fungal attack. These cells form the physical barricade to wounding and fungal attack. With SeaMelBarricade you get healthier crops at the lowest possible copper rate per ha.

The situation

Keep what you have

When you have achieved strong and healthy crops you want to keep them that way. For many years, copper has been used to help toughen up plants and increase the stability of the cell structure. However, copper is a very toxic element that accumulates in the soil and is responsible for significantly reducing microbial diversity.

The challenge

Lignification with less copper

Legislation on copper prevents its unlimited application, but copper is an essential micronutrient in the conversion of simple sugars to more complexed carbon molecules such as lignin. The challenge is to achieve an optimal balance between nitrogen and copper, which is essential for the density of cell structures.

The solution

Lignification for optimal resilience

SeaMelBarricade is a foliar applied copper complex that is essential for tissue strengthening. SeaMelBarricade has the lowest possible copper rate per ha. The product sticks well to the leaves so the risk of accumulation of copper in the soil due to a SeaMel application is virtually zero. It is vital for lignification of epidermal cell walls. These cells form the physical barricade to wounding and fungal attack. With SeaMelBarricade you get healthier and more vital crops, with increased disease resistance.

Strong points

SeaMelBarricade, 19% copper, 11% organic matter from complexing sugars

  • 1

    Concentrates cell tissue

  • 2

    Toughens up the plant

  • 3

    Lowest copper application rate

Wound tissue formation

On the image, on the left normal cell walls are shown. The image on the right are cell walls 6 weeks after being wounded. A secondary cell wall is created as a response to the wounding. This wound tissue has a high lignin content (University of Hamburg).

Application for a better performance

Directions for use

  General application rate:
As a plant hardener

0,5 l/ha in 80-400l of fresh water

The need to reduce chemical crop protection is prompting agronomist innovators to develop biostimulants and elicitors. The combination of red and green seaweed extracts in SeaMel delivers active substances that enhance each other's role in the stimulation of plant health. The special sugars such as carrageenans, ulvans, active sulphate groups, proteins and organics acids all play an important role in nutrient, energy and signal exchange, preparing the plant for every form of stressful event.
