How does Maritime work?

Maritime contains highly effective bioactive compounds (primary and secondary metabolites from the biological kelp extraction process) known to improve nutrient and plant functioning.

The bioactive compounds in Maritime have been shown to:

  • Enhance the plant’s ability to tolerate abiotic stresses like heat, drought, salinity or cold by positively influencing the plant’s metabolic activity in response to stress

  • Mitigate plant transplant shock

  • Include a broad range of beneficial, plant-available phytohormone-like compounds that improve root and shoot development

  • Facilitate improvements in seed germination and greater nutrient uptake by the plant, particularly through improvements in root quality for greater efficiency capturing nutrients and water

Maritime also contains a diverse microbial community that supports soil and plant health. This community includes nitrogen fixers, saline- tolerant species, plant-associated microorganisms and plant-growth promoting microorganisms.
