SEA•CURE is an alkaline hydrolysis process seaweed extract, produced by us from fresh Maine seaweed.
SEA·PLUS is a 3-2-2 (N-P-K) fertilizer, a mixture of concentrated fish emulsion with seaweed extract.
SEA•PLUS is a blend of soluble fish with liquid seaweed, and is used much the same way. It has a guaranteed minimum analysis of 3-2-2 (N-P-K), and gives a nutrient kick to add to liquid seaweed's plant growth hormones. Because the fish in SEA•PLUS is heat processed, the proteins are partially broken down, making most of the nitrogen immediately available. This allows for rapid, even overnight, recovery of plants suffering from nutrient deficiencies, with low application rates. If fish odor is a problem, or if plants are already well-fed, or if your goal is to boost frost tolerance or to suppress disease, then SEA•CURE would be a better choice. But when the plants are growing fast and hungry (teen-aged?), SEA•PLUS gives a complementary boost like no other. This product meets the National Standards for "USDA ORGANIC" certified growers, as well as MOFGA and NOFA standards

SEA•CURE contains the following ingredients:
Potassium carbonate (99100% pure)
The extraction process consists of grinding seaweed, mixing and heating ingredients together. After the cooking phase, the extract is screened, filtered, and bottled. This method has been termed alkaline hydrolysis since (at least) the 1950's, and Living Acres believes this process to be included in the NOP Rule in §205.601(j)(1), under the clause (other than hydrolyzed). As of October, 2002, we have requested clarification from USDANOP.
SEA•PLUS contains the following ingredients:
Fish emulsion (partially dewatered liquefied fish waste)
Phosphoric acid (stabilizing agent)
Potassium hydroxide (seaweed extracting agent)
The seaweed is extracted in accordance with the NOP Rule §205.601(j)(1), then blended with fish emulsion (solubles), and stabilized at a pH > 3.5 in accordance with the NOP Rule §205.601(j)(7).
